Miriam’s Bio

Hi there! My name is Miriam, I'm 32 years old and have been working both professionally and as a babysitter/nanny with children for over 15 years. Just recently I've returned from Australia after 15 months of work abroad! In my latest career, I worked as a Child Life Specialist in the Emergency Department for over 5 years in both Miami and Austin. During my time in Austin I also cared for a toddler with Cystic Fibrosis. Aside from this, I have worked with children as a music teacher, infant/pre-toddler/kindergarten teacher, education intern at Austin Children's Museum, camp counselor, Child Life Assistant and ongoing nanny. My bachelor's degree is in Human Development & Family Sciences with a concentration in Early Childhood Development and I plan to continue utilizing this in my future endeavors. To describe me best would be friendly, reliable, compassionate, patient and energetic! I thoroughly enjoy life around kids, it is my passion and what I will be doing for several years to come. I practice positive communication with children as well as incorporate learning/development in my interactions to provide a not only fun but enriching experience! I look forward to being of some valuable assistance to you and your family.
