Through middle and high school I babysat often for families from my church. I also provided childcare at my church during worship rehearsals and other events. I worked with one family very closely watching their children 2-3 evenings a week. This included feeding the children supper, bathing them, and putting them to bed. Through my time in college I provided childcare at a church during various Bible studies. I worked with other young women in this capacity caring for 15 kids or more aged 6 and under. I lived with a family for 6 weeks while taking a summer course and helped with the care of their 2 children. Since graduating I have worked as a special education teacher working with middle school students who have moderate to severe disabilities. I have also provided childcare for a family with 4 children (3 of the 4 have disabilities). While working as a teacher I have continued to provide some childcare. I pick up 3 children after school and help the older 2 children (the youngest is not yet in school) with their homework, prepare dinner for all 3 and get them ready for their evening activities.

first started babysitting when I was about thirteen years old. When I was fifteen, I took on my first full time summer babysitting job as a babysitter for my 6 month old brother, as well as our neighbor’s children who were 4 and 6 years old. At sixteen, I began babysitting for a family who had four boys, whose ages ranged from 12 years old to 9 months.

I am currently a graduate student within a Mental Health Counseling program at the University of Saint Francis, here in Fort Wayne. I have a passion for connecting with others, mentoring; as well as caring for children and young adults. I view myself to be a kind-hearted, and intentional individual. I try my best to be empathic, compassionate, and understanding of others because we all come from different backgrounds and experiences. I believe that my desire for a compassionate and peaceful lifestyle can be seen in my work ethic, genuine joy; and authentic personality.

I have formal work experience as a Mental Health Technician at St. Joseph Hospital, and have worked within the Behavioral Health Units and Cardiac Floors. I possess a CPR certification and understand basic life-saving procedures.

I have experience with children both from my education and past nannying jobs that I undertook within my collegiate undegraduate and high-school years.

I currently am PRN at St. Joseph Hospital. This means that my schedule is highly flexible, because I basically set my own schedule from week to week. Typically, I'm most available Monday - Friday. However, I am willing to negotiate weekend hours depending on my given work schedule/duties each week. I look forward to meeting you and your family :)

Hi! My name is Arianna. I have always loved caring for children. Looking after children and watching them as they learn and grow is one of the most rewarding things to be able to experience.

I've been working in childcare since I was about 13 years old, doing childcare work at the church I attend. I'm the oldest out of my siblings and most of my adolescent years were spent taking care of them (getting them ready for school, cooking meals, helping with homework, etc.) I have experience with children of all ages, however I prefer caring for children 2 years and older.

I'm currently looking for full time. My availability is completely open Monday-Sunday and I can start as soon as possible. I can do overnight care should the opportunity arise.

I have a naturally nurturing personality. I'm creative and love doing arts and crafts! I am very comfortable around pets + pet care. I have experience with house cleaning from a previous job and I enjoy cooking immensely. I have my own car with a valid license and insurance, which makes taking visits to parks, appointments, and stores and breeze.

I look forward to hearing from you!
