Heather’s Bio

I have babysat for several years on a regular and occasional basis. For the past few years, I have worked as a paraprofessional aide with children with Asperger's in grades 4-8, and more recently in a special needs Pre-K class. While working in the Pre-K, I was also able to practice ABA one-on-one with a student. I was a Summer Camp Counselor for the several summers, including 4 years at Aspire, which serves children with Aspergers/Autism. I have also worked at a gym daycare for a number of years, with children ages 3 months - 12 years. I am a strong swimmer with previous lifeguard experience, as well as experience teaching swimming lessons to children ages 3-10.

I am comfortable sitting for children of any age, and/or special needs. I have a dog of my own, so I am also okay with pets! I am open to helping out with household chores and drop offs/pick ups to and from activities. I live in Brighton and have my own car.

I am originally from Texas, just north of Dallas. I received my undergraduate degree in psychology from Providence College (2011) and am currently in a Master's program at Northeastern University for School Psychology.

Heather is conscientious and nice, and handles a complicated extra-curricular schedule really well. My kids enjoy their time with Heather and find her very fun and easy to talk to. She is very sweet and patient. We will continue to have Heather babysit for us and would recommend her to our friends. She has babysat for us approx. 8-10 times.
