Emily’s Bio

I grew up in a fun, loving Midwestern home in northeast Iowa.  I feel that I have a lot of important values, such as honesty, loyalty, and hard work, that I can pass on to the kids I work with.  When I was thirteen, I begged my parents to let me start babysitting, and I have been looking for opportunities to spend time with kids ever since then. I started out by taking a first aid and CPR class (the first aid certification is now expired) and volunteering in my church nursery, and I gradually began taking babysitting jobs for families in my neighborhood. I have been a part time summer nanny, and I have also worked two summers in a preschool for special needs and behavior disordered children.
When I graduated high school, I began attending college at Bethel University in Saint Paul.  When I decided to change my major to Speech and Hearing Science, I transferred back to the University of Iowa to take advantage of in-state tuition and a great program.  I have now graduated and am planning on becoming a Physician's Assistant.
I'm a very loving person who enjoys spending time with the people around me - especially children.  I also know how to maintain control of a household however, and I am hard working and organized.  I enjoy planning fun activities for the kids I work with!

Emily helped out my family in a pinch, on very short notice. I needed someone who could help me take care of my toddler when morning sickness kicked in earlier than expected in my pregnancy. We were visiting the area from out of town, so we didn't know anyone who might be able to assist us in finding a helper.

She was professional, prompt, and great with my 1.5 year-old son. He loved playing with her, and she knew lots of ways to keep him entertained. She also helped out with some laundry.

Emily knows a great deal about child development from her university studies, which, I believe, also helps her relate well to kids.

If we return to Des Moines, I wouldn't hesitate to call Emily up in the future.
