Meet Kennedy

Hello, my name is Kennedy Word and I love working with children and infants. My love for adolescents runs so deep that I'm actually going to school just to spend the rest of my life with them. As a recent graduate of Xavier University of Louisiana, I graduated with a B.S. in Public Health with a double concentration in math and biology. Ultimately, I will become a OB/GYN professional. This profession is perfect for me because it gives me a chance to see babies and children consistently on a daily basis. Therefore, embedding my career-related experiences in babies and children is critical to my overall development as a physician and it's quite rewarding for me. In general, I have been caring for children since I was a freshman in high school. I watched a lot of different kinds of children in my Colorado neighborhood because I am military affiliated and Read more so soldiers always needed someone to care for their kids. Being able to care for those children gave me a sense of understanding for the various cultures, beliefs, and backgrounds as well as the importance of respect. This series of babysitting lasted me all the way up until I started college here in the Greater New Orleans Area. I was responsible for cooking, cleaning, ironing, and other housekeeping chores. I took the children to the park, shopping facilities, and even their extracurricular activities. I was, in a lot of ways, a big sister for the kids I babysat. I remained calm, humble, and understanding while interacting with them. A great bonus I found in my personality is that I am not easily upset or disoriented but rather patient and gentle. I love to have fun and enjoy the simple things each day has to offer. As a big kid myself, I am more than confident that I am a great fit for any parent. My experience with military personnel prepared me to work for countless culture sets. My educational background declares that I am educated and therefore, will act in a manner that promotes the child's greatest interest. Furthermore, my personal background gives me the interpersonal skills to communicate and work cohesively with your child. Last but not least, I am a lover and that is the best care anybody can give to a child.
