Mandy H. - Seeking Work in Avon

I grew up in a large family, raised with traditional values . Babysitting my way through college for numerous larger families, ages infant to 14 years old seemed second nature. After moving out to colorado I have found my specialty in my work field. As a fly fishing guide I regularly take kids out on the river and teach them to fish amongst other outdoor skills. In addition to my guiding experience I'm a certified Eagle Scout instructor and conducted all of the outdoor kids classes for Bass Pro Shops in Ohio.

2 yrs of experience

Throughout my life I've had the privilege of working with several families and their children. From conducting In-Home therapy for kids with autism to living in Kenya for 3 months while working at an orphanage, kids have always been apart of my growth. I have a degree in Communication and Art, love the outdoors and am an avid hiker. I think its important to share your passions with the ones you surround yourself with. I love carrying out arts and crafts, getting the kids outside and keeping them active. Being a good role-model is the best gift to offer a child. With my creativity, reliability and responsibility, I think I'd make a great nanny.

My absolute favorite part of being a nanny is the ability to be an integral part of a child's development. There is nothing more rewarding than watching a child grow and progress while in my care. The fact that I am with the child for a significant amount of the day makes me realize I largely influence them and can impact their lives. It is a huge responsibility, but also an honor and a privilege.
