Bridget’s Bio

I am currently taking on-call babysitting appointments while I study and do NPO work. I heard a bachelor's in Anthropology in 2014 and plan to study maternal-infant health at the graduate level. I minored in Psychology, with a strong emphasis on research and child psych/parenting. Thus, I have a strong knowledge child development, and have presented at conferences, published in journals, and studied with top researchers in this area. I am also a trained birth/postpartum doula, lifeguard & am studying for the IBCLC lactation exam. This would make me a great match for a young family with mom headed back to work, but because of my background in child psychology I am also very competent with older children.

I am familiar with various parenting philosophies and strive to honor parental choices/values. I'd probably be best matched with a family that embraces a positive, nonviolent approach.

Since I believe it is my job to focus on the children without distractions, the housework I am willing to do is restricted to cleaning up the messes that we create while I am there. Meal prep is fine!

Caring for children has always seemed to come naturally to me, and fits nicely into my life right now. I am very pleasant and easy-going in my approach to kids. I am also professional, reliable, and communicative, and can provide excellent references. I look forward to talking with you!
