Meet Ellyn

  • Comfortable with pets

I am a Graduate of UMass Amherst, having majored in Speech Pathology and minored in Education, currently living in Manhattan studying at Columbia University. I have a great deal of experience with many types of children and am also educated in multiple behavioral and developmental disorders. I was a Personal Care Assistant for a young girl with Cerebral Palsy as well as having been a full time babysitter for a six year old girl, taking care of all of her basic needs, as well as transporting her to sport and social events, a care taker for a set if siblings ages 2 and 5, as well as many other care taking employment experiences. I am incredibly energetic, outgoing and responsible, and obviously love children!
