Amanda’s Bio

As long as I can remember I have been caring for children. It started with one of my brother's birth and diagnosis of Down Syndrome. He also had many medical problems that ultimately led to him getting a trach and a feeding tube. Around the age of 10, I learned how to care for him and watched him while my parents worked. From there on I have babysat for multiple families, many I still keep in touch with to this day. In addition, I have attended college and earned my Associate's Degree. I also completed a Paralegal Certificate Course. Currently, I'm working in retail and looking for a change.
