I've been caring for children of all ages for over 10 years now, and have truly enjoyed the endless learning opportunities and moments of genuine connection this work offers. I'm a compassionate, attentive, and playful caregiver who understands each and every child comes with their own strengths, interests, and particular comforts. My youngest sister is intellectually and developmentally disabled, and I've also had professional experience in direct care roles with children and adolescents with special needs, so that's a particular area of strength for me. I'm a college graduate with a bachelor's degree in sociology and am First Aid/CPR certified. I'm currently seeking either occasional or regular part-time work. I look forward to connecting with families in the area!
