Ellie’s Bio

I am an undergraduate student at UNC Asheville, pursuing a major in Psychology and a career in counseling or psychological research. I am empathic, patient, and conscientious—I understand that each child is unique and impressionable, especially in early development, and requires supportive and reliable care. I enjoy kids for their exuberance, curiosity, and candor, and love connecting with families.

From ages 13 to 17, I was a frequent weekend sitter and occasional mother’s helper for a family living around the block, with a mischievous 2-year-old son and an intrepid 5-year-old daughter. The children were being raised bilingual and without exposure to television, so most of our time was spent role-playing epic tales, creating crafts, and reading stories of adventure. Responsibilities included stroller-walking, trips downtown and to the park, bathing, enforcing bedtime routine, and preparing meals.

From ages 19 to 20, while earning my associate degree, I worked as an after-school nanny with a skeptical 5-year-old tomboy and her amicable 8-year-old brother. Choice activities consisted of baking, home science experiments, and playdates with neighbors, until their parents returned in the evening from working in the city. Responsibilities included driving to and from school or camp, homework help, providing healthy snacks, trips to the pool, and supervising groups of up to 6 kids at a time.

Over the years, I’ve worked on and off as an occasional sitter for several families, mostly with children in their toddler and elementary school years. In that time I have encountered severe food allergies, autoimmune and gastrointestinal conditions, asthma, special dietary needs and preferences, separation anxiety, ADHD, learning disabilities, and OCD. I am trained in CPR and the Heimlich maneuver, and know how to administer an epipen or inhaler. I am attentive to the needs of each individual child, and more than willing to work within specific parental guidelines.

I look forward to meeting you and your family!
