Amanda’s Bio

I am the oldest of six in a single parent family; this alone has given me a lot of experience! I have also sat for many other families, including infants to teens, from twins to families of 5, and for little geniuses as well as kids with special needs.

To expand upon my special needs experience, in college, I cared for children with disabilities, including but not limited to those with autism, PPD-NOS, blindness, motor deficits, speech difficulties (or otherwise nonverbal), ADHD, cognitive delays, and Down Syndrome.
 
In addition to all of my experience as a babysitter, I am also a certified nursing assistant, and have been for the past six years. I have experience working with almost any disorder that can affect the elderly, as a result of time spent working and volunteering in nursing homes, ALFs, and private homes. I had to pass a Level-2 Background Check in order to ascertain standing as a CNA in Florida, as well as a physical stating that I am fit for caregiving and free of communicable diseases. I also also able to provide you with a copy of a clear background check from Hillsborough County.
 
I am also CPR and FA certified. I used to be a medication-tech in Ohio, but this certificate was not transferable to Florida. I have intermediate sign language skills. I graduated with honors from the Ohio State University with a bachelor's degree, and I am currently pursuing another degree. In addition to being in school and employed as a CNA, I pursue temporary work scoring standardized tests and dog-sitting.
