Hello! I am a newly-graduated RN looking for immediate, (semi-) temporary work in childcare while I establish my nursing career. In addition to my absolute passion for young folks and previous experience with babysitting and childcare, my nursing education prepared me well for working with kids. I've worked with kids of all ages, from premature newborns to adolescents. I am certified in Basic Life Support (CPR & AED) as well as Pediatric Emergency Assessment, Rehabilitation and Stabilization, both through the American Heart Association. I have both hands-on and academic knowledge of child development, and am familiar with age-appropriate play to help your little (or big!) ones learn and grow in a transformative way. I look forward to working with you!
