Hours (full-time or not)Full-time hours

Hi, my name is Randi! I am 21 and a baby-hungry newlywed. I LOVE kids. I have spent time around kids my whole life. I have been a live-out nanny, and have babysat for multiple families. All through high school I assisted with the "mini-cheer" clinics that were hosted by my high school cheer squad. I taught girls and boys cheers and dances and chants from early in the morning all through the day. Those activities included exercise, snack time, and game-time. I am a Mormon so I have grown up in family settings, and love playing with my husband's nieces nephews and little cousins. Also, with my church I serve in the "nursery" where I entertain children ages 1 yrs to 3 yrs for two hours while their parents attend classes. We have lessons, snack time, play time, and do crafts. I haven't been a nanny for a few years but am excited to jump back in and enjoy spending time with kids again! Please feel free to contact me with questions or to meet!

I have worked as summer camp counselor in the past with ages ranging from 5-14. I have also lived with an infant for a year in 2009. The majority of my professional experience is with the elderly. However, I have experience providing care for clients with all levels of dementia and behavioral issues so a transition into working with children is something that would come easily and I would greatly enjoy. I am BLS (basic life support) certified at the healthcare provider level meaning I can perform CPR and heimlich on someone of any age, infant to adult.
