Meet Lydia

Hi! My name is Lydia Chase and I'm currently a sophomore at Connecticut College majoring in Environmental Studies and Sociology. At school, I'm a fundraiser for the advancement office and a tour guide on campus. When I'm not at school, I'm in my hometown and favorite place, Orono, ME! I have been babysitting on-and-off for several years, for children of varying ages. For several summers, I was a volunteer youth summer track coach for children ages 3-14. This past summer, I worked as a camp counselor at Camp Laurel. I lived in a cabin overnight for 7 weeks with 9 girls ages 6-8, took them to their various activities, and made sure they were always having fun and were always safe. I am currently in Orono for the summer, and then coming back and will be in the area from November to February. My schedule is very flexible. I can Read more provide transportation, and I love pets. I also have a passion for being outside and for cooking (but can also make a mean Annie's mac and cheese when needed!) Special needs care: My older sister has special needs, I have cared for special needs children in the past, and my Mom is an Occupational Therapist, so if applicable, know that I recognize the importance and wonderful aspects of spending time with children with special needs, as well as having the ability to adapt to the specific needs of the child.
