I am 38 years old and have extensive experience providing childcare. For the past 20 years I worked with children between ages infant, early childhood through early teen years. I obtained my undergraduate degree at Loyola University Chicago (B.A.) and my Masters of Counseling and Art Therapy graduate program was completed at The School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Currently I work part time in both the childcare and counseling/therapy fields. I feel childcare is very fulfilling, because I can contribute to a child's overall growth and development. I describe myself as as a creative, encouraging, educational, and playful sitter. My training includes infant and child CPR.
