Sarah’s Bio

I'm a college student at KU, studying art therapy. I have a passion for creativity and expression, and admire the honesty of children and many people who have developemental disabilities, or autism. This past summer I worked as the Arts and Crafts director at a summer camp for adults with special needs. I had the time of my life, and assisted many people whom I consider live long friends. Before that, I worked for two years at a local daycare, with children ages 0-8. I've also nannied in the past working with children of all ages and levels of functionality. I currently work in a group home for adult women with special needs. I have experience working with people with down syndrome, autism, celebral palsy, dementia, schizophrenia, prader-willy, adhd, seizure disorders, eating disorders, and those needing assistance with activities such as bathing, eating, toileting, mobility, dressing, etc. I currently am certified in MANDT, First Aid, CPR, and SIDS prevention. I would really love to have to opportunity to care for loved one, helping people is my passion.
