Hello, My name is Valerie. I am a part time college student, looking for a full time caregiver, nanny, pet sitter, or personal assistant position, and I am flexible with my schedule.I am an experienced nanny, and absolutely adore children with my entire heart. I previously taught art and drama classes at a theater camp in the past, and have worked for a good variety of people (references available upon request). I have babysat for families with kids ranging from newborns to 15 years old. I enjoy being out in the community, actively engaging with children in what THEY enjoy doing, and making them feel comfortable and content while mom and dad are away. I also adore animals, and do my absolute best to be sensitive towards their needs as well,and keep them happy and healthy when owners are away. I have house sat and taken care of many animals for friends, family, and those in need as well(references available upon request). There's just something about taking care of everyone and ensuring safety, happiness, respect, and security that makes me happy. I would say that Care giving is my passion, and I enjoy helping people out in any way that I can..it really makes my days so rewarding and worthwhile. I also obtain skills and knowledge of working with kids and young adults with special needs. Working with kids who have special needs is my preference, and I absolutely adore helping them grow and function at their highest ability. My best friend and older brother Josh has downs syndrome, and he is my entire world and heart. Josh has not only taught me so much about myself, but he has shown me how to be the best I can be in my life, and pursue each day with a positive attitude. I have learned so much from him, and I enjoy spending time with him and helping out with his needs as often as I can. I am very loyal to the families, pets, and people that I provide care for, and I am also very reliable. If you simply need an assistant to help you with tasks, I am very familiar with computers, filing, organizing, and I can present and speak well over the phone. I also have a very safe car(volvo 4 door), and am happy to accommodate needs for transportation as well. Keeping a house clean, and having meals or snacks ready for everyone is also a task I greatly enjoy doing. I love to cook, and I do not mind helping out with anything that is asked of me. Having fun, keeping everyone happy, and respecting all wishes of my boss is the most important priority for me, next to safety. In regards to safety, I am familiar with basic first aid/CPR, and my mom is a nurse, so I have learned a lot of basic knowledge from her as well. My objective is to be the best caregiver/provider that I can be, and I take a great amount of love and pride in my work. If you are seeking someone who will be perceptive and responsive to any and all of you and your childs needs with a unique and responsible approach, open mind, and positive attitude then I could be the right fit for you and your family. Thank you for taking the time to read my profile, and if you are interested in my services or have any questions for me at all, please contact me!
