Hi, I'm Ashley! I moved to St. Thomas in December 2014 from a small town in the mountains of North Carolina. I decided to go back to school and attend the University of the Virgin Islands!
Prior to moving to St. Thomas I worked with handicap/developmentally delayed children, adolescents and adults for 8 years. I worked with clients mostly one-on-one, but also in group home settings. I am very compassionate about my clients and ensure they receive the best care and help they need! In addition to developmental therapy, I provided respite services for families (essentially babysitting) in their home and my home as well.
My babysitting experience started at an early age when I would babysit younger children for family and church friends. My first job at the age of 16 was in an elementary school providing after school care and homework assistance to children grades K-5. I also worked several summers as a counselor at Summer Day Camp. I was employed at the elementary school for 3 years, then began the job with handicap individuals where I worked 8 years.
I am currently CPR and First Aid certified. I have completed training in medication administration, seizures, diabetes and special medical equipment/monitoring.
I have babysat up to 4 children ages 1-12 at a time and am comfortable taking care of multiple children. I have my own transportation here on St. Thomas and am able to travel to any location on the island. More details and references available upon request. I would love to come meet you and your family!
