Maura’s Bio

Hi, my name is Maura.
I'm currently enrolled in the doctorate of Audiology program at Pacific University in Hillsboro. Although I was born and raised in the Boston area, I've actually been living in Australia for the past three years.
I absolutely love to travel! Upon completion of my undergraduate in 2010, I took off to India & Thailand to teach English & Phonetics to Elementary aged children. I continued onward to explore the rest of Southeast Asia and found myself in Australia! 5 years later and here I am! Back on American soil, continuing my passion of hearing and balance management. These experiences have given me an incredible perspective on world life and culture and I would love to share my stories with  you and your children!

I have lots of experience as a nanny, and numerous excellent references I would be happy to provide you with upon request. I also have teaching and tutoring experience, so I would be happy to help your children with their homework/tough subjects.

I would describe myself as fun, patient, energetic, dependable and caring, and I love to work with kids of all ages.

I absolutely love being creative as well as active, so I will be able to keep your kids busy with arts&crafts as well as sports, playgrounds, museums, swimming, and any other crazy/gooey/messy activity we come up with!
 
I have a dependable car, so I am also able to transport your children to and from various events, activities and play dates.
 
I also have experience with children of different disorders including autism, cerebral palsy, C.H.A.R.G.E, ADHD, Sensory & Auditory Processing Disorder, as well as children involved in state Early Intervention programs. I have experience using hearing aids, g-tubes, potty training, and children with specific nutritional diets.
 

As I am in a time-extensive (and expensive) program, I am only available regularly on weekends or nights after 5pm. However, I do have other time slots available during the week in the mornings/afternoons that might suit your family's needs. Please give me an email and I can provide you with my exact schedule.

If interested, please e-mail me with any questions and concerns and I would be glad to tell you more about myself and provide you with excellent references and a resume. I look forward to hearing from you!
 
Cheers!

My kids, ages 7, 4, and 2 LOVED Maura! Hopefully our schedules will match up again because my children will be thrilled! She was a very fun and trustworthy babysitter.

Wonderful sitter!

Maura has watched our kids twice now and she is so sweet and attentive with them. She made Christmas cards with them last time and went above and beyond what was expected. She is very reliable and great to have around our kiddos.
