I have a younger brother who is 6 years my junior, so I got stuck babysitting a lot as a kid! In middle school, I began babysitting for other families and learned I really loved working with kids... that weren't my brother.
In late high school and early college, I worked day camps at a children's recreational facility and found my passion. We crafted, played games and sports, went to the beach, and hosted various field trips. I learned crisis and behavioral management. I left to become a nanny, which I did until I graduated college 5 years later. I loved the close bonds I developed with the children I saw everyday.
After graduating college, I began an educator position with a nonprofit that provided academic services to at-risk youth, primarily foster youth, in Los Angeles County schools. Since 2015, I have worked with both OMSI and Audubon as an environmental educator. Most recently, I spent Spring-Summer season with Audubon coordinating and teaching grant-funded environmental education programs for marginalized youth in the Portland metro area. I will be returning to school in the fall, so I'm returning to childcare. It's flexible work that I love!
I adore working with children. I enjoy watching them learn, grow, and knowing that I am making an impact on their lives by helping them make good decisions and have fun! I'm very active and engaged with kids - I take them on walks, to the park, on runs, outside to hunt for plants and creatures. I also love reading together!
My experience and personality make me an excellent caregiver. I am patient, intelligent, kind, understanding, trustworthy, and energetic. I follow instructions well, but am always ready to work on my own, take initiative, and make healthy decisions for your children. I will take excellent care of your children and I can contribute positivity, knowledge, and love to your child's life!
I have my own car and a clean driving record. I have current CPR, First Aid, Lifeguard, and Wilderness First Responder certifications. Basically, I can keep your children safe and healthy in any situation!
