I was a live in nanny for a family of 3 children in Australia which made me realize how much I love children. From there I didn't act as a nanny or babysitter but I became very involved in different avenues for kids in my community. I coached junior high girls/high school boys basket ball in Alaska along with being our local churches youth pastor. I also work at a barrier free, special needs camp full time with kids that have cognitive learning disabilities, cancer, muscular dystrophy, cerebral palsy, skin diseases, burn victims etc. I have a lot of experience dealing with all different age children with different disabilities.

I worked for a non-profit company for a little over 3 years. Part of my time there, I worked in a group home taking care of mentally challenged adults. I would work 16 hour shift from 4 p.m. to 8 a.m. I helped with personal hygiene, eating, housework and medication administration. I was promoted to case manager in which I was in charge of 20 clients. I made doctor and dental appointments, enrolled clients, went on home and school visits, all the necessary paperwork, went to school meetings for our school age clients, organized community outings and made sure that the general well being of the clients were taken care of. I have been a babysitter to a family friend for the past 7 years to her 3 boys.

I have loved childcare since I was old enough to babysit, because I have always felt it is a way for me to continuously care for others - which is a value I hold close. I enjoy being able to express my responsibility and care for children and their families, not only because I love being around kids, but because I love being able to share my passions in life with them as well (such as music and learning).
