Meet Alexandra

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Alex, I'm an artist, writer, and nanny living in Glendale, CA. I currently work with a family as their nanny and assistant for over 2 years now, and unfortunately they soon will no longer be needing my services as much. I have always have been working in the film production world, but alongside my professional life grew to encompass childhood education both at home and abroad. I went from teaching English in Thailand to managing a nature camp in Chicago; most recently, I directed a therapeutic and nature-based program for homeless children in San Francisco. My most recent position as the Beach House Coordinator at A Home Away From Homelessness was as demanding as it was rewarding: I was responsible for designing and driving a successful high demand program focused on child homelessness advocacy! At the Beach House, I was coordinating and scheduling with 10 different Read more transitional homes and shelters, working with families and shelter managers to provide weekly “Beach House” trips for their children; being that we were an all volunteer-based program, I was mostly a one woman show. I forged partnerships with the National Park Service, Nature Bridge, and The YMCA at Point Bonita, allowing me to facilitate even more interactive learning experiences for our children!
