Olivia’s Bio

I grew up in a big family and began learning how to care for babies at 10 years old. Today, I have four nieces and three nephews and I've loved every minute of it! I like taking them to the park, playing games and doing crafts, and helping with their homework. They taught me at an early age that I love working with children. At 15, I started coaching a Pee Wee cheerleading team and a children's morning bowling league. I went to Dominican College in Orangeburg, NY and I graduated with a BA in 2017. Post-college, I worked at a mental health facility and cared for children and adults of all ages. I facilitated therapeutic activities, assisted with daily living, and our primary responsibility was to provide safety. I was very comfortable caring for children, but this was my first time caring for adults. After a year of experience, I realized that I love working with all ages and it has become a passion of mine. My most recent position was a healthcare advisor for children with disabilities and the elderly. At this time, I have an open schedule and I can be flexible to your needs! I also have experience in light housekeeping, food prep, meal times and even nap times. I'm comfortable with all ages and I have my own vehicle for any travel needs. :)
