Full-time hours

Ever since I can remember I have loved spending time with children. I was twelve years old when I started babysitting and I always enjoyed those hours. As I got older I realized that I enjoyed children so much and found the family unit so important that I wanted to continue learning about them and go into a field that involved working with children and families. As such, I recently graduated from BYU-Idaho with a B.S. in Child Development. In 2010 I spent the summer in New York nannying three children - a 5-year old, 7-year old, and 14-year old. In 2011 I completed a 4-month practicum helping run an after-school program at an elementary school in Rexburg, Idaho. There I worked with a team of three other peers creating and executing lesson plans to stimulate the social, emotional, cognitive, and physical development of children ages 5-10. Last summer (2013) I interned at Utah Youth Village going into the homes of troubled families and teaching them skills to improve their family functioning. Besides these jobs I have 9 nieces and nephews ranging from infant to 10 years old who I have helped babysit frequently for the past 10 years.

I cared for 21 children of all ages (including 4 infants) and am successful and passionate about my work and have a one year internship working as a 1st grade teacher at ASU.

I was a nanny for an family in Bellevue, WA for six months. They have two wonderful little girls who I still keep in contact with. I also worked for a family in Arizona where I helped take care of a baby girl, and a 3 yr. old boy for about 8 months. Most recently I worked for a family in Bellevue, where I watched a 3 year old girl, and 2 year old boy for a majority of the day. The family has an older son who is six, who comes home from school at 3:30. I have been worked for this family for a solid two years. I finished working for them on a consistent basis a couple of years ago, however I still keep in touch with the family and babysit for them as much as I can. Over the years I have had plenty of experience with childcare. I absolutely love kids. I coach high school volleyball as well. Along with many years of taking care of cousins, my friends siblings, and my own nieces & nephews.

It has been a blast spending countless hours getting to know many little children. During high school, I supervised basketball and volleyball camps. It was a great experience to be able to teach children about the fundamentals of sports along with get to know many different little personalities. Last year, I spent my time as a mentor for the youth program at my church. I led devotions and discussion groups with 5th-12th graders. This was definitely one if the most rewarding experiences. I spent this last summer as a live-in nanny for two sweet little girls in California, ages 3 and 7. We spent the summer thinking of silly games to play, playing at the park, swimming in the pool, and taking weekly trips to the library.
