Meet Samantha

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a recent graduate of Lewis & Clark College with a B.A. in English. Education is my passion, and I hope to one day be a professor of English. I have worked as a Day Camp Counselor and Director for 5 summers, and worked at an After School Program for children aged 4-12 for 3 years in high school. I am comfortable with kids of all ages, but particularly love preschool and elementary school age kids. I have 7 nephews, aged 1 - 10, and have spent a lot of time babysitting them throughout my life! I am currently registered in the Oregon Central Background Registry, and have a certified background check from Checkr. I love pets of all kinds, and would be happy to hang out with your pet as well as your kids! I love cooking, and would also be happy to prepare meals for your children.

Samantha received a glowing review from all 4 children. When I walked back in the door I heard unusual things like "when are you going out again?" Or "we have a new babysitter now, right?" I also heard a rumor that my 9 year old son decided to skip out on half of his electronics time to continue playing with everyone. I don't think I've ever heard of behavior like that from him before.
