Most recently I was employed as a Psychological Counselor in Brewster, New York at a residential treatment facility for young adults. Working on a team with other staff I am responsible for dealing with our members (clients) on a daily basis. Our responsibilities include: implementing and teaching coping skills, service plans, educational groups, social skills, and life skills. Our ultimate goal is to reintegrate the members into the community to live a more independent healthy lifestyle. It is a voluntary treatment center where members suffer from a range of issues such as eating disorders, schizophrenia, personality disorders, substance abuse, behavioral issues, trauma issues, self mutilation. Many members are in our dual-diagnosis program. Recently I finished up a year working as a third grade Special Education teaching assistant in the Carmel Central School District. My students ranged in their abilities from the lowest functioning capabilities to highly functioning children with Asperger's Syndrome. It was very rewarding change of pace. My experience there showed me that, although I might not want to be a teacher, I do enjoy helping others less fortunate and with disabilities. I absolutely love working with children. I also have extensive experience as a camp counselor, soccer coach, babysitter and basketball coach.

My name is Lisa, I'm 23 years old. I have babysat for multiple families throughout high school and college. I graduated Siena College this past May (2012) and will be returning to Graduate school this coming fall for School Counseling. Last August, I began working with an absolutely wonderful family that I found – as summer approaches, and my position ends I hope to be lucky enough find another great family to work with before I head back to grad school. I have worked with children ranging from age 5 months to 12+ years. I have a strong background in the education field and enjoy putting my college education to good use. I’ve created chore boards, behavior contracts, reward systems etc…for the families I have worked for. I also have what has become known as the “Mary Poppins bag” of activates and crafts that could keep kids of all ages entertained for hours! I am a creative person who can create fun activities out of pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I am proactive sitter, I would rather have kids doing activities instead of propped in front of the television. I was a leader for 3 years and have an endless supply of left over crafts. While completing my undergrad, I spent a year teaching an Emotional Intelligence class at a local middle school. I created and taught lessons about a variety of subjects (integrity, honesty, and self discipline) to 6th grade classes. The goal of the class was to get students to think and make decisions for themselves. I don’t mind doing housework, organizational things, and am a pretty good cook. My homemade chicken soup, I am told, should be famous! I also really enjoy making desserts (Birthday cakes are my specialty). I am a safe and cautious driver and have a very safe car. Please let me know if you have any other questions for me! I would be happy to answer them!

Caring for children is something that is second nature for me; I am the oldest of six children, and from a very young age, I was like the "little mom". Before working in the non-profit world, I was a nanny for several families in Westchester with children ranging in age from newborn to 16 years old. I also worked as a nursery school/daycare assistant.
