I had my first babysitting job in 6th Grade for an infant and toddler across the street from my house. Since then, each year of my life has been committed to kids - from my first, “real job,” lifeguarding in my neighborhood, to camp-counseling for elementary, middle and high-schoolers in Texas, to working with youth and their families at non-profits in Atlanta and South Carolina. Then I was a hospital chaplain in Colorado Springs and led a non-profit in Oregon for 8 years. Now, I am looking to go back to school to get my PsyD, but decided I would nanny in a place with access to the outdoors and be around kiddos until grad-school (2021). I love the moment when a kid warms up and you see them crack their first suspicious smile. I love when a youth trusts you enough to be themselves without reservation. I love when Read more an infant holds onto your finger for comfort and a toddler walks along the sidewalk with your hand. I love when those first discoveries turn into belly laughs over the silliest things, or moments of support for the scraped knee or bad day at school. It is a gift to be present with and for families as they navigate anything from the routines of daily life, to the logistics of family trips, and much needed parent date nights. I take pride that when visiting friends with kids, the kids are as excited to see me as their parents, and I have an equal amount of fun with both. My goal to support the family while caring for their kids comes naturally.
