Meet Amy

  • Comfortable with pets

I am an accomplished professional and have worked with children for the last 10 years. I have extensive experience with children of all ages and abilities. I have a bachelor's degree from Grand Valley State University in Therapeutic Recreation and a minor in Spanish. Since graduating in 2013, I have been employed by Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago as a recreation therapist in child and adolescent psychiatry. I am now an intake coordinator for the hospital and I am looking for occasional weekend baby sitting opportunities in my area. I love being active with the children I work with, getting outside and trying new things. I am also a certified yoga instructor and love to read and write.
