Amanda’s Bio

Hello. My name is Amanda. Before receiving my degree, I worked as a babysitter/nanny for two police officers young children for 4 years throughout High School. While attending college, I spent a semester in Italy teaching 8-10 year olds English. After graduating college, I began working in Wilderness therapy focusing on 9-17 year olds who may be experiencing any of the following: low self-esteem, depression, learning differences, drug and alcohol abuse/addiction, anxiety, isolation, family conflict, attention deficit disorder, mood stability issues and defiant or manipulative behavior. I also have lots of experience with teaching, specifically in the sciences.

On a personal note, I absolutely love working with children. I find my sense of exploration, creativity and imagination great building blocks to beginning healthy rapport with children of all ages.

I am a Wilderness First Responder which means I have training in handling emergency situations/medical care. I also have CPR and CPI certifications.
