Samantha’s Bio

Hello parents! I am a 28 year old graduate from Eastern Washington University (2014) where I completed my Bachelors in Psychology. I am a Registered Behavior Technician and currently do ABA therapy for children on the autism spectrum. I work in a school district part time and absolutely adore working with children! Building a relationship with the children and families I work with is very important to me.

I have also previously worked as a Visitation Supervisor, where I supervised visits between foster children and their biological parent(s).

I am an experienced childcare provider with over 12 years of childcare experience in ages newborn to teenager. I am comfortable with special needs as well. I am highly interactive, and never want to miss out on learning opportunities for children- learning is meant to be fun, enriching, and exciting!

I understand how important consistency is, and you can rely on me to maintain routine and adapt to your parenting style. I am happy to cook dinner, help with homework, bathtime, and bedtime. And of course- playing! I enjoy helping children with arts and crafts projects, board games, reading stories, and playing pretend.

I am an animal lover, so if you have pets I am happy to help walk/feed/play with them as well!

I am CPR/First Aid certified (renewed in August 2016), am trained in car seat safety, and have my RBT certification.

I am happy to discuss rates with you and we find something that works for your family/situation. Please do not be afraid to reach out and I will see how I can help. Everyone should have access to good childcare.
