Emily’s Bio

Hello families! I recently moved to the lovely city of Arlington, MA and am looking for some babysitting work! I'm currently working at the Microsoft Research New England lab, and recently was working full time at a homeless shelter in Somerville for teen mothers as a family advocate and parenting coach there. My coaching specialized in children ages 0-3, particularly regarding care during the first few weeks after birth, although I have experience, both practical and academic, with all ages. I'm looking for weekend gigs to help support my dad, who had a terrible accident earlier this year and is now in medical debt.

I have a car and a clean driving record, so I can take your little one on trips to the beach, library, parks, etc or pick up/drop off from school/ activities! I'm a great cook, and I consider myself to be creative and musical, with a love for doing arts and crafts with children. I'm caring, intuitive, and have a natural ability with kids-- at the shelter my nickname was the baby whisperer! Though I may not be ready to have any of my own just yet, I truly enjoy the company of children in the meantime!

A little extra about myself:
I am a Lesley University alum with a B.S. in counseling and psychology with a specialization in holistic psychology/ CIAMT (complementary, integrative and alternative medicines and therapies). I have been babysitting on-and-off for about 13 years, and was a nanny for about 5. I am a certified babysitter by the Red Cross and I have a CPR, Heimlich maneuver, and AED certification as well as certifications in medicine administration and NCI. In the past, I've worked in preschool classrooms, and alongside children with special needs. Though college, I worked with the America Reads program to tutor third-graders with under-developed reading and language skills. I have also had the opportunity to become an intern for the Margaret Fuller House's after school program in Central Square. My duties there included working one- on- one with children ages 4-12 on a wide range of issues, including social and emotional needs and academic skills. I have experience with infants, toddlers, school-aged children, all the way up the secondary school children.
Resume available upon request.

Note: I am allergic to cats.
