Amanda W. - Seeking Work in La Crosse

22.85 / hour
Full-time hours

I began babysitting in my neighborhood (and elsewhere) when I was about 12 years old and babysat regularly for at least six different families. I have cared for children anywhere from 18 months to 17 years old. I also have experience with special-needs and with premature babies. In 2008, I became a live-in nanny for a family with three children, one of whom had special needs. I worked with the family for over three years, fulfilling various tasks from childcare to cooking (including for special diets), cleaning, running errands, helping with school work, potty training, pet care and providing individualized care for the special needs child. I even went on vacation with them! I loved working with them and for them and we maintain a friendship to this day. I moved on to a different job about four years ago and have since been doing as-needed care giving/respite in the LaCrosse, WI area for two families, and I also work full-time at a childcare center and one day a week within a high school program for teen mothers and their babies age birth-three years.

I began work as a full-time nanny after graduating college in 2010. I worked for 2 years in Wisconsin as a teacher in childcare, as a behavior therapist for children on the autism spectrum, and as a nanny for twin 6 month old babies. I then started traveling and working abroad, and found wonderful live-in jobs for the past 2 1/2 years, in Australia, New Zealand, and in Italy, where I am currently residing. I've been babysitting, and interning, and helping to raise children all of my life, and I hope to continue to do so for many more years to come.
