Lauren’s Bio

I am a college graduate with a background in art and lots of experience working with children. I'm a Midwest native that has called Chicago home for the past 6 years, but have been happy to relocate to Portland this summer.
Since graduating in 2010 I have worked as a nanny for two families with infants (both 8 months when I started). Additionally I have spent time working as an Au Pair in the Netherlands where I helped in managing the household along with caretaking of a 3-year-old. In college I worked as a hotel babysitter which entailed caring for children aged 1 month to 12 years in various downtown hotels. I also have nannied full-time for two summers for a family with 3 children (age 3,6, and 9 at start).
I have quite a bit of experience volunteering with children. I traveled to Romania where I worked for a summer in an orphanage for special needs children. In Guatemala I led a group of volunteers to teach art at a local elementary school. Working with kids is really my passion and I am eventually hoping to get my Master's in Art Education. 
I am CPR/First-Aid certified.
