Elizabeth’s Bio

Hello! I am a 23 year old student working toward a degree in alternative health and medicinal botany through The Evergreen State College. I am currently employed part time at the Alpine Experience in downtown Olympia and spend most of my free time rock climbing or snowboarding on some of our beautiful volcanoes. I am lively and easy going and enjoy spending time outside, rain or shine, doing anything from kickball to nature walks with kids of all ages. Some of my other hobbies include painting, making my own jewelry, upcycling/resewing used clothing, and making plant-based salves and body products. My partner in most all of my adventurous endeavors is my dog - a 3 year-old gentle, well-behaved shepherd/akita mix with a big personality who loves to keep me entertained and active. I moved to WA from Maine about 5 years ago and am still enamored with all the beauty the pacific northwest has to offer.
When I babysit I try to keep it in mind that kids should be given the same respect as adults, and I find it important to be able to talk and get down with children on their level, hold conversations with them and be a mentor, friend, and temporary protector all at once. I understand the importance of structure and discipline when necessary, but feel there is always a way to take a creative and non-threatening approach. I can usually get laughs (or at least a smile!) out of most of the kids I've worked with and am a positive and laid-back individual. I have had several trainings and hold ertifications in CPR and First Aid (also Wilderness First Responder and Lifeguard Certified). In addition, I have my own transportation - a reliable subaru forester...as well as my bike! I have part time availability (mostly evenings and weekends) and can always adjust schedules in advance to make something work. Call me up, I'd like to help you out!
