Meet Samantha

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello! My name is Samantha Yachnin, I am originally from Libertyville, Illinois, and I just finished my sophomore year of college at High Point University in North Carolina. I am a part of the HPU Civitan International Club and the Student Alumni Council and am studying Business Administration and Marketing. My experience with children fist began when I started watching my younger sister. At the age of 13, I began watching my cousins and many of the children in my neighborhood. I have worked as a lifeguard and a sales associate at Ace Hardware, but when I am not working, I am watching my younger relatives and family friend’s children. I have many years of experience. I am very comfortable and confident with handling multiple children at once as well as many age ranges. I love outdoor activities, doing arts/crafts, playing games, creating forts, and baking delicious treats! Working with Read more children brings out my inner child and I wouldn't trade that feeling for anything else. Although I enjoy going for runs, traveling, listening to music, reading, and wakeboarding in the summer, being a nanny or any kind of childcare provider is my most favorite hobby! I like to create a fun and positive experience by coming up with new and exciting activities. I always let the children know that I am not just their babysitter, but also their friend. I am there to make them feel safe and comfortable. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!
