Samantha’s Bio

Hello!  My name is Samantha, and I graduated with a degree in psychology.  During my time in college, I worked hard to stay on the dean's list each quarter, while fulfilling my extra time with volunteer work and childcare.  For the past ten years, I have worked with children as a nanny, after school tutor, behavioral therapist, teacher's assistant, mentor, camp counselor, and pediatric Occupational Therapist volunteer.  I have spent many years working with children who have experienced physical, mental and emotional disabilities.

I am extremely comfortable working with children in all age groups, family sizes, and needs.  

What I appreciate and enjoy most of working with children is teaming up with the parent's and becoming part of the family.  I believe that component is extremely important.  

My philosophy is to treat each child uniquely based on their individual needs.  I am not the typical babysitter who simply walks in and stares at your child for five or six hours.  I believe in engaging them with interactive play that also reinforces desired behavior and learning.  I take my job very seriously, and that is something you can expect from me each and every day.  I am very loyal to the people in my life, and treat each child and family with the same respect.

I look forward to hearing from you!
