Meet Larissa

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Larissa and I am a 30 year old forensic psychology masters graduate looking for a part time or occasional job in child care. I have around ten years of caregiving experience, and have spent these years as a nanny, special education teacher, teachers assistant, personal care assistant, tutor, and day training specialist. In addition, a large portion of my child care experience has been working with children with special needs, including autism, ADHD and emotional disturbances. My nannying experience has been both seasonal and full-time, and I have also provided live-in services in the past. I have worked with children from the ages of 3 to 18, but the majority of my experience has been geared towards adolescent boys. However, children are my passion and any age or gender is preferred! I love reading, baking, animals of all sorts, and any type of physical activity. I Read more love to be active and spice up life! However, my secret interest is arts and crafts, and I always have plenty of ideas up my sleeves! In addition, I have a basic understanding of Spanish and adapted American Sign Language and love to practice both.  Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or would like to discuss any opportunities. I look forward to hearing from you soon! Sincerely,  Larissa M.
