Kendra G. - Seeking Work in Lancaster

14.28 / hour

I have a B.S. degree in Psychology, which was invaluable as I home schooled my own three (now adult) children for 13 years. I am an experienced artist and musician. I have had professional jobs as a vocalist and pianist, but now enjoy serving on the church worship team more informally. I am currently the home supervisor of a group home for adults with disabilities. I am a warm, enthusiastic, people-person, who inspires others to greatness. One of the individuals in my care at the group home won the Award this fall for exceeding all expectations in exploring gifts and independence in areas not believed possible. I am a new grandmother to a small infant and long to share more of my time with young children. I am a confident, comforting, loving presence that helps babies relax and enjoy their world.

I am 25 years old and employed full time. I am looking to help out your family part time either early mornings or overnight. I was a nanny for a family of 4 for the last 3 years and loved every minute of it. Their family is now in a new stage of life and doesn't need as much additional help. I am also a proud aunt of 3 nephews and 2 nieces. As a teenager I would babysit off and on for neighborhood families as well as my siblings. In addition to babysitting, I gave horse riding lessons to 5-12 year olds for 4 years as a teenager. I am a very responsible, caring, organized individual who has worked as an emergency response dispatcher and understands the responsibility that comes along with caring for children.

I have experience babysitting my younger brother (who is now 10) and looking after my younger cousins while our parents got ready on holidays (they are now ranging in age from 12 to 16). I also volunteered at an early childhood center with children ages 4-6 for about a month in the spring of 2011 where I was responsible for up to 8 children at a time helping them with their reading and writing or just playing games. My brother has Aspberger's Syndrome so I am familiar with that condition. I also have a cousin with ADHD and Mild Autism, so I am familiar with that combination of conditions as well. I also have had contact and experience with children who have Dyslexia, Depression (Mild to Severe), Anxiety (Mild to Severe), Pica, and Down Syndrome (Mild to Moderate cases mostly).

I have been babysitting since the young age of 12. After that I realized how much I love working/teaching children of all ages. After I graduated high school, I applied for a job at a Daycare center. I got the job and was made the head teacher of the Toddler (the two year-old) room. I was employed there for 14 months, however I had to leave due to the low pay rate. I then took class at HACC and acquired my certification as a nursing assistant, I was a CNA for 5+ years in a skilled care nursing facility. I worked part time while in nursing school full time. Then graduated in 2010 from nursing school, and am now a PA state licensed nurse. I have a lot of childcare experience, with outstanding references. I was even chosen (through to be a nanny for a hit TV show on TLC to be a nanny for a family with 8 children. Sadly due to my then work schedule I was not able to give enough of my time without have to leave my full time CNA job.
