Meet Rachel

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! I've spent the past 14 years caring for children aged 1-13 years. I love connecting with children of all ages. I enjoy supporting their growth and helping them learn, listening to them and learning from them, encouraging a process of thoughtful decision making through positive reinforcement. I'm patient and warm. I have experience providing both long-term and short-term care for families, and am comfortable caring for groups of children, or single children. I'm CPR trained and have strong references. My degree, from The University of Washington, is in Cultural Anthropology and Political Science. I'm a practicing artist and believe strongly in community. I have experience working in community for youth oriented non-profits and arts organizations throughout Seattle. I've created and implemented arts workshops for deaf and blind youth here in Seattle in collaboration with a local arts non-profit, and have spent time working abroad with various NGO's and youth.
