Im from small town Montana. I grew up in a large and very close family in the Bitterroot Valley. I started taking care of siblings and other family children at a young age as the 4th oldest out of 14 total. I began working as a paid child care worker at 18 for an early learning center. I worked with infants up to 12 years of age for a year. After this I began working for xx in Missoula MT and worked with infants to preschool age for 5 years while going to school. I have worked for various families here and there nanning part time and baby sitting when needed. I now currently work part time for a Fitness Center in the child care position. In addition to this I have maintained a youth director position then advanced to a co- director position for xx camps for 9 years. In this position I work with high school age kids training them in how to direct, plan, and work with younger children age 8-12 for summer 4H camps. I have a degree in Social Work, and while in school also maintained a position in a Mental Health Center.

My parents have adopted and I am so blessed to be apart of such a big, beautiful, diverse family! It's like we're all actual brothers and siblings that's how close we all are! It's a great experience! I also nannied last summer for a family friend, she was a doctor so he hours tended to vary and I was very okay with that :) I nannied two little boys! One was 5 the other was 12 they are both such good boys we had a ton of fun. We did everything this summer! We camped, went swimming, played sports, did crafts (lots and lots of friendship bracelets, had friends over, played tons of board games! We didn't do too much educational stuff since it was summer and they were over school for a while :) but I wouldn't of had a problem with education I was enrolled at university of montana western to become an elementary school teacher! I loved it and hope to go back and work at becoming an elementary school teacher someday! Anyways I also babysit randomly I have a lot of family friends that know me and trust me.

My first high school job was as a teacher's aide at a daycare in Billings. Since then I have been hooked to working with kids! I worked at that first daycare for three years, then my senior year of high school I was able to co-direct an after school program for ages 8-12 and a summer camp program that summer. When I moved to Missoula for college, I accepted a job with a daycare and remained with them for about a year and a half until I got my first nannying job with a local Missoula family. I stayed with them for about a year, took a little time off of working to focus on school and then accepted a job at xx. I have been with xx for about a year now. Through all of this I have had many hours of caregiver trainer, first aid/CPR, and other types of training. I am also educated in child development and early childhood education. I have been surrounded by kids my entire life, growing up with three sisters, 14 first cousins (all younger than me), 8 second cousins, and most recently my first niece!

I am a professional caregiver who will implement a program that explores and encourages the skills of your children and prepare them for their successful development in school and life. I am a serious and reliable person that will support the emotional, artistic and intellectual growth of your children with a program tailored to their age and needs. I have led crafts and story time for toddlers at my local library, lead youth groups, and have been a basketball coach. I have been a live in nanny for three families. I have also been an on call babysitter for over 14 years. I have house sat for over 7 families and helped with their pets when they were away. I have a living passion for the outdoors and practice living a happy healthy life. I believe my experience working with children, my volunteer background, and with my knowledge of infants would make me an excellent caretaker. I am the oldest of five children and my knowledge with babies started when I was 12 years old. My free time consists of learning about health and wellness, bird watching, hiking, biking, reading and I practice yoga.
