Amanda’s Bio

I'm going into my 3rd year of studies as a PsyD student in clinical psychology. I've been a childcare provider since 2007 and currently specialize in working with moderate to highly functioning children on the autism and/or pervasive developmental disorders spectrum. Activities I enjoy doing with the kiddos range from exploring nature, to getting lost in a tower of books, to painting and making all types of artwork. I believe imagination, compassion, kindness, and empathy to be fundamental in all learning experiences for children.

I'm currently seeking date night, summer, and occasional babysitting opportunities. Thank you for your time and I look forward to speaking with you about your specific childcare needs.

Amanda has been absolutely wonderful in taking care of our now 21-month old toddler over the past year. She is very organized and reliable-but most importantly our daughter loves her. She was the first sitter I could walk out the door with without tears from my daughter. Amanda always engaged her in age-appropriate play and planned great activities all while following my preferences in schedules, meals, etc.

My husband and I trust Amanda so much that we recently had her watch our daughter for our first weekend away. I couldn't have been happier. Amanda sent frequent text message updates and pictures and we returned to happy child who had a fun-filled weekend (and a house still clean!). There is no doubt I would ask Amanda to watch our daughter overnight again in the future. I only wish Amanda wasn't leaving us on the East Coast to head to San Francisco! San Fran, you're gaining an amazing babysitter/nanny.
