Bria’s Bio

I began babysitting at the age of 13, for neighborhood children that were younger then I was. At that time I was swimming and getting serious about the sport. I began nannying for family friends in the summers at the age of 16 when I had more time between practices. When I first started the boys were 6 months, 2 , 4, and 8 years old. And I worked for the Copelands until I went to college to swim for Colorado Mesa University in Grand Junction, Colorado. I got to see those boys grow for almost 3 years!
I moved to Denver, CO after injuring my knee, to be close to family. There I worked for a family Monday through Friday, 7am- 7pm. The Cross's were great! I gained a ton of experience working with them! I took Addison (2 years) to play groups, and classes.. I potty trained her, and worked on learning the alphabet and counting. We played outside, and learned sounds, and different new words. Their second child, Brayden was 2 months when I started. He had tummy issues, and it was tough at the time. But looking back I learned so many tricks and touches with helping him get through the acid reflux. He was a great baby!! Needless to say it was a pleasure to work for them!
Since then, I moved to Prescott, AZ for a short while. There I coached The Prescott Swim Team. As Head Coach I work with pre-team as young as 4 years old, learning basic swimming safety and stroke skills. All the way through to national competitors at 18 years old. I headlined the program, defining all scheduled work outs, practices, training, and season planning for 40 swimmers.
I also worked for RESCARE as a caregiver. There I was certified through their training classes, and Red Cross. I worked for a family with 2 fully paralyzed, non-responsive teenagers. Both children have a variation of different disabilities. My responsibilities included but were not limited too; feeding, changing, bathing/hygiene, lifting to wheel chairs, administrating medications, exercise, all basic cleaning and laundry, meal preparation, feeding through a gastronomy tube, communication with family and all professionals in Tia and David’s life (physical therapist, speech therapists, etc.), and monthly reports of progress/regression to my supervisor at Eric Do. It was an incredibly challenging job in the beginning! But Tia and David are both so very strong and sweet, they made it very easy for me to fall in love with caring for them! And very difficult for me to leave.
