Jana’s Bio

Hi! My name is Jana (usually kids like to call me Jana Banana or Banana)! I have a Masters and am trained in Expressive Art Therapy, Child + Play Therapy. I am a first year doctorate in psychology student at Pacifica Graduate Institute and looking to balance my studies with fun, playful and consistent child care work. I'm an awesome cook and can cater to food allergies / sensitivities.

I have incredibly diverse 10+ years working with children and youth of all ages and backgrounds. I've been working with children since I was 13! My experience includes:

*Babysitting + Nannying
* Working as CIT, Camp Counselor, Art Specialist at Tumbleweed Day Camp / Rustic Canyon
* Working as a counselor/educator at expressive arts / dance and mindfulness camps during the summers for the past 3 years (Northern California Dance Camp, Go Girls!)
*Working as a nutrition educator and photographic educator for a number of non-profits, working with youth ages 12 - 22 +
* Working as a tutor / adjunct to an educational therapist. Working with kids with ADHD, ADD, PDD, learning disabilities and on the Autism spectrum.
* Received training at Double "H" Ranch (a Paul Newman Hole in the Wall Gang Camp) to work with kids with serious illnesses + disabilities as a counselor, aid and photographic educator

I also am also an experienced pet sitter and love animals. I am First Aid + CPR certified.

I look forward to meeting you and your family! :)
