Meet Ruth

  • Speaks English
  • Comfortable with pets

Hi there, I have worked with youth for most of my career since my Peace Corps experience. I'm patient, kind and encourage children's curiosity, imaginations and faith in self. I have worked with youth ages 14 up, and am employed in higher education, working with 17-year-olds on up. I have also been responsible for numerous away-trips, handling logistics, meals, allergies, safety, relationship crises and the like. However, I connect well with younger children too, and feel most confident with children ages 5 and up. I'm babysitting now on the side before my new job begins in January, so I'm available for more time than I will be next year. Please be in touch if you have any questions; I want you to feel comfortable, secure and happy knowing who your child is spending time with as we wait for you to come home, nurturing mind and heart.
