Elle T. - Seeking Work in Portland

14.28 / hour

I've nannied since I was a teenager. Most recently I have been working for 4 families. One girl, age 6. Two boys, 3 and 6. A boy and girl, 5 and 3. And a boy, age 6. The 3 year old girl has severe autism and while I didn't get hired on as a full time caregiver for her due to my lack of professional experience with Autism, I did care for her numerous times over the course of the summer and felt a deep connection to her that transcended spoken words.
