Amanda’s Bio

I just graduated in May 2010 from Lindenwood University. I have a degree in Psychology and Criminal Justice with a minor in Chemistry and Sociology. I was on the Lindenwood University All-Girl Cheerleading Squad for 3 years. I have a twin sister that lives in Dallas also. We are the best of friends and always together. I am very active and always have to be doing something. I was a lifeguard for about 5 years. I have been teaching swimming lessons for about 9 years now, which I established great relationships with the children and their families I have been teaching for. I have experience in teach all ages starting at 2 1/2 to adults. From having this job I have experience in teaching children with mental and physical disorders.
Teaching swimming I have gained many great families that I still babysit for. I have been babysitting for 9 years now.  Most of the families I have been with I have been watching their children for 4 to 9 years.  I have a great relationship with all my families I sit for so if you need to talk to someone they would be happy to chat with you and give you great reviews about me.
I have experience with watching children from as young as 1 month to about 13 years old. I also have experience with watching children with mental, physical, and a medical problem the relates to food issues.  I have experience with multiples.
I am very reliable and flexible to when you may need a babysitter. Last minutes are fine with me I am willing to jump to the punch when it comes to that as long as I don't have other plans or other jobs.  I have experience in watching children for long term if the parents have a trip or out of town for work. Also I am willing to travel too if you are in need of a sitter to help out on vacations.  I have also taken a 4 year old and 6 year old to the Virgin Island by myself to spend their spring break down there with the grandparents.
I moved to the Dallas area in Feb. 2011 to live with my twin sister and now moved back to St. Louis May of 2012. I am getting my Masters in Gerontology at UMSL. I plan on getting my Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology.  I am also a Graduate Research Assistant at UMSL.  If you would like to meet me, I will be more than happy to set up something with you.
Right now I am only taking on sitting jobs that are occasional.  My schedule is pretty busy so I cannot take on a consistent job during the week.  I also still teach swimming lessons during the summer at my parent’s house, which they have, an in-ground, heated pool with a diving board.  I am also willing to come to other places for lessons if need to be.  If you are interested in learning more about getting your child in lessons please let me know.  I will be happy to chat with you.  I do private, semi-private and group lessons.
I have also traveled to Spain, Africa, Ireland, London, Wales and Paris while attending Lindenwood.
