Meet Amelia

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I am a junior studying child development and psychology at the University of Illinois. I'm studying to become a Child Life Specialist, which is someone who works to reduce the fear/anxiety that pediatric patients face when going through medical treatment/hospitalization. I genuinely just love children (I want 7 of my own in the future!). I've worked with pediatric patients (newborns to age 17) and their families at Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, Carle Hospital (the hospital on my college campus) and North Shore Skokie Hospital. I also am completing my second semester of student teaching at the preschool on my campus. Currently, I am with children ages 1-3, and last spring I was with children ages 3-5. With this position, I create and teach lesson plans, write anecdotal observations/portfolios on the children pertaining to their progress in the seven main developmental areas, and have to supervise 10-15 children. For the Read more past two summers, I have been a babysitter for a 7-year-old boy with type 1 diabetes (through Back in high school, I was a camp counselor at two Wilmette camps (with kids ages 5-11), and was an afterschool tutor for Chicago Public School students (ages 10-12). I grew up in Wilmette and graduated from New Trier in 2015. I am currently finishing my junior year (20 years old) and will be returning home to Wilmette for the summer. I had two unpaid internships last summer (for St. Jude Children's Hospital Chicago Regional Office and American Cancer Society) and while those were incredible experiences, I need to pursue a paying job for this summer to save for graduate school. I love working with children and families and love to make personal connections with other people, I'm such a people person! I could never spend a whole summer just working in a store, and nannying seems like a perfect job for me. I also have experience with housekeeping and errands from when I was a personal assistant for a graduate student with spinal muscular atrophy. I will be back in Chicago for the summer on May 13 and can start as soon as possible. Let me know if you want to set up a time to talk further, I am looking forward to hearing from you!
