Shannon’s Bio

I was a creative photography student at the University of Florida in Gainesville, FL and have been living in Portland, OR for the past seven years. I graduated from Portland State University with my bachelor of fine arts degree with focuses in photography, video, sculpture, and printmaking. Aside from art and photography, I am interested in possibly becoming a certified doula, though that may be a few years down the road. I have been babysitting for more than a decade and have worked as a nanny for the past seven years for several families (with one+ year commitments). I have a great love for children of all ages. I enjoy teaching them about the world and giving them fun and educational experiences. I love doing art projects and cultivating imagination and creativity. I am a true believer in children being actively engaged. I am familiar with Montessori and Waldorf approaches as well as attachment parenting. I have experience with cloth diapering, potty training, organic/veg diets, preparing breast milk, and more. I have participated in baby sign language, swim lessons, music together, art classes, and so much more all here in Portland. I try to get outside daily despite rain or weather, either on walks or outings to libraries, museums, rec centers, etc. I have my own car and am comfortable driving children. I am very punctual and reliable as well as extremely neat and organized. I love pets of all kinds and am more than happy to care for them as well. Please contact me for my resume and list of references!

Shannon watched my 3 year old daughter and nephew last weekend and did a fabulous job. She was on time and very professional, she asked all the right questions and immediately put me at ease. It was obvious that she had tons of experience with children. The kids had a great time playing with her too. I wouldn't hesitate to ask Shannon to sit for me again.
