Meet Lydia

  • Licensed Practical Nurse

Hi, I'm Lydia! I am a graduate of Moody Bible Institute with a B. A. in Counseling and am pursuing employment in Oak Park. I love working with children and have 9+ years of paid babysitting/nanny experience. I am also a LPN with experience working with individuals with special needs. Nanny jobs have always proven to be such a joy for me and I would love to get plugged in with a family long-term. It is so fun to be able to see children grow and develop and it is such a special experience to be able to encourage that growth through play. Some of the opportunities I have had include: • Participating in a traveling Vacation Bible School Team throughout the U. S. where I taught the pre-school/kindergarten class. • Working in the neonatal area, including the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit during an eight week clinical • Teaching art Read more and music history classes for homeschool students. • Working at the Jinja Pregnancy Center, mentoring a group of at-risk teenage girls and co-directing their children's ministry program. • Volunteering at Ekisa Ministries, a pediatric rehabilitative home for children with special needs. • Providing mentorship for at-risk youth with TreeHouse Incorporated. • Tutoring elementary students with Inner City Impact.
