Megan’s Bio

Hi there!

Thanks for reading my profile! Here's a bit about me: I'm a full time student at Drake University in Des Moines, originally from Minneapolis, studying Advertising, Marketing, and French. Last year I spent an absolutely incredible 7 month traveling and studying abroad all over Europe. I am a member of Kappa Alpha Theta and am heavily involved in community service, specifically CASA (Court Appointed Special Advocates) and Habitat for Humanity.

I've been babysitting for 9+ years and absolutely love working with children. As part of my adventure last summer I worked with international and military kids from all over Europe and the US at a summer camp in Pisa, Italy. Also, while in Paris for 4 months, I volunteered with an after school children's program in a developing neighborhood. I've nannied in summers passed and two years ago I spent a month volunteering at an orphanage in Ghana. That experience was amazing and taught me far more than just how to better care for children.

I lived abroad in Waterloo, Belgium for six years and am fluent in French. I've worked with children of all social and cultural backgrounds as well as children with down syndrome, ADHD, OCD, and Autism. I also do overnights, dog sit, house sit, etc.

Non babysitting work experience includes working in for the Drake University Athletic Communications department, interning as a digital media marketing coordinator at Sports Spotlight, working as a Web Development Consultant for Moonlight Freight Services LLC, Assistant Product Manager for D-LAB, Marketing Project Manager for a book that was released in early September 2013 and an Administrative Assistant for Watershed Partners in Minneapolis. Past work beyond that includes restaurants, nurseries, and retail.

If you have any other questions feel free to ask! I'd love to hear from you!
