Meet Lindsay

Hello! My name is Lindsay, I have always had an easy time connecting with children and that passion is what I plan to build my career around. Currently I have my Bachelor's in Psychology from the University of Illinois, as well as a Master's in Social Work at U of I in Champaign/Urbana, with a concentration in mental health. During my undergrad degree, I completed a 6 month long internship at Big Brothers, Big Sisters Program, and was also a full-time nanny for about a year. Before that, in high school, I babysat many children after school, and even worked at an after school program for one year. I have enjoyed and thrived working with and around children my entire life, I promise to treat your child as my own, enforce your house rules, and try my best to provide stimulating & fun activities during our time together. I am Read more completely against me sitting on my phone or ignoring the children and telling them to go and play, I like to build a relationship with the child and help to stimulate their mind while I am around. I am also very good at housework and do not mind that being one of my duties involved with a caretaker situation. I would love to be able to work with children while I simultaneously work towards getting my social work license. If you have any other questions for me, do not hesitate to ask. (:
