Lauren’s Bio

         I am 24 and graduated from the University of Vermont in December of 2011, where I majored in Global Studies and minored in Environmental Studies. I also took a lot of Spanish as a requirment for my Global Studied degree and am proficient in it. Since this time I saved money in order to travel to England for three months and work on an organic farm with a wonderful family who had a two-year-old son. Apart from learning a lot about farming and food preservation I spent time playing with, caring for and experiencing the vegetable garden, chickens and pigs with their son. I learned just how fun and curious about learning children of this age are and fell in love with the excitement for every new experience young children have. This has made me more interested in working with children of any age. 
         Before this summer and university I took a year and moved to Los Angeles where I did an Americorp program called City Year. Through this program I mentored middle school aged children, participated in planning and working at a spring break camp for children age K-5, and planned and implemented service days for the greater LA community where we painted murals and planted gardens mainly in LAUSD schools. This was a wonderful experience, which opened my eyes to a way of life in our own country that was far removed from how I grew up and what I knew of the human experience.
         I am very interested in the eating locally and healthily. I am currently looking for a new apartment with enough space to plant a vegetable garden next summer. I like to cook and love to bake. I like being outdoors and walking. I also snowboard, make small stained glass windows and find art projects to be really enjoyable. Additionally, I try to be very engaged in the world around me and love learning about new places and people. I love to travel and have been to many countries in Europe, South Korea and throughout the US and Canada. I spent a semester in Spain and am not fluent but am able to hold basic conversations in Spanish.
         Currently I live in Burlignton. I do not have a car but it is likely I will buy one within the next few months depending on need, at the moment I walk, bike or take the bus. Due to the fact that I am on a strict budget I did not automatically opt to pay for the background check but am more than willing to if you are interested in me.
         I am interested in a job where I feel productive and useful but have not yet found a long term job that fits my interests and feel that until that time being a nanny seems to be a much better experience than working in an office or customer service based environment.
