Childhood education and caregiving are some of my greatest talents in life. I come from a large family which has provided significant experience in working with children. At age fourteen, I started my own neighborhood babysitting business. Upon graduating high school and entering college, I began working as a nanny and household manager. I have been continuously working in childcare for 14+ years and absolutely love it! I am fully vaccinated. I am certified by the Red Cross in Adult and Pediatric First Aid/CPR/AED. I can provide caregiving references for the past 10+ years. I own my vehicle, possess a current Oregon driver license, and have a completely clean driving record. I can commit to at least one year of employment. I have experience in working with premature infants up through age thirteen. I have experience in potty-training, separation anxiety, feeding, bathing, dressing, overnight care, care while parents travel out Read more of state, cooking for various restricted diets, preparing school lunches, preparing nightly family dinners, laundry, general household cleaning, household organization, tutoring, etc. I have held the position of babysitter, nanny, family/household manager, and caregiver for client with Alzheimer’s. I am an active, intelligent, and hardworking individual. I have been an avid swimmer since age 5 and am happy to supervise and swim with the kids! I also love to spend time outdoors, play various sports, read, cook and bake, make art, play instruments, sing, etc. I bring love and care into everything I do and will always guarantee giving you and your family 100% of me, every day. I believe that is what you all deserve!
