Meet Rachael

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi there! I'm passionate, hard-working, down-to-earth, with an extensive background in youth engagement, crisis management, and special needs. For 1 year, I have been a full-time Case Manager and Advocate for adults with developmental disabilities at The Arc of San Francisco. Prior to that, I was a Paraprofessional within a special education department at a middle school in Oakland. Before that, I was as a counselor for foster youth in the bay area, where I responded to crisis calls and provided family therapy. I've also babysat kids from newborns to 10-year-olds, volunteered with UCSF's Autism Neurodevelopment Clinic, worked as a Respite Caregiver, and grew up with an autistic sibling. All of these different roles have allowed me to express my calm, compassionate nature while keeping kids safe and growing towards their full potential. I'm also very happy to transport kids, cook, clean, or do household tasks to make your load Read more lighter. Looking forward to meeting you!
