Alexandra S. - Seeking Work in Plano

Hourly rate22.85 / hour

I was a nanny for 13 years before becoming a medical massage and aquatic therapist. I spent three of those thirteen years nannying for a boy with severe autism while I went back to school for my sports therapy and medical massage certificates. It was a life changing experience that shaped my future in ways I had never imagined. I loved teaching him new skills and exploring the world around us together. I enjoyed creating goals with his family and helping him to reach those goals. Working with this young man taught me so much about this world and who I want to be. To this day I still celebrate holidays with this family. For the following six years I owned my own business doing massage and aquatic therapy for children and adults with special needs. Most of my clients I worked with for 4+ years. I treasure each person and the families that I connected with. It was amazing to watch these individuals grow and overcome and learn. I worked with a wide variety of special needs from autism to cerebral palsy to Down syndrome. I had been contracting with the DADS program and when the budget was cut I could no longer sustain my household. This last year I have spent as the spa manager and lead therapist of the Spa at Brookhaven Country Club. While this has been a wonderful experience utilizing my medical massage skills to help members with injuries rehab and implementing programs to grow this business, I have found the lack of support for personal and professional growth in a corporate setting disheartening. I find myself missing the personal relationships and the chance to help people change their lives. I would love to find a family that is looking for someone to help their children explore and learn from the world around them. I value creativity and love to foster this trait in others. I think that culture is an important part of society and experiencing and engaging in these activities help kids to become well rounded social adults. Any chance to foster an interest is exciting! I am an outdoors aficionado that includes everything from kayaking to backpacking to biking. Six years as an aquatic therapist means that I maintained a lifeguard certification that came with CPR and First Aid for the professional rescuer. I have also taught swimming lessons and children's piano lessons. At one point I was wilderness first aid certified as well.

My name is Ashlyn B. I live in the Spring Creek and Dallas North Tollway area. I have a little over 7 years experience working with kids both as a nanny and as a babysitter. I am a very responsible, activity-oriented 19-year-old college student that has extensive experience in every area of childcare. I have worked with special needs kids, kids of all ages, multiples, toddlers, and newborns. I have a fairly large family that includes an 11-year-old brother that I have helped raise since birth, along with fraternal brother and sister twins who just turned three this past November. I have helped my mother raise these wonderful kids since birth, and have gained lots of experience in every aspect of early and toddler childcare because of them. I have been working with children my whole life and it's something that I love wholeheartedly. I am currently attending Collin College, and am in the process of obtaining an associates degree in education. I plan to become a kindergarten or 1st grade teacher after earning a Bachelor's Degree at The University of North Texas. I am a very responsible, mature, and outgoing person. I have a lot of goals and dreams that I want to accomplish. One of my biggest goals is to work with special needs children after teaching elementary school age children for a few years. I could keep going and going about my information and my extensive background of working with kids, but please contact me. I am sure your little one will thoroughly enjoy my fun-loving, educational, and activity oriented attention. Nothing brings a smile to my face more than being around kids and bringing smiles to their faces!

I'd like to start by thanking you for taking to time to look me over! I am a mother of 6 and all my babies are nearly grown! My oldest son is 22, and our 'baby' is 10. Being a stay at home mom just didn't make much sense anymore! Besides being a mom for over 20 yrs, I have been working with children since I was 16yrs old. I started working in Day Cares then and switched to being a nanny in 1995 after having my oldest child. I only left being nanny when my family moved away from the DFW area. Now I am back, and as all my kids are now in full time school, i find myself missing "playing" all day! I am looking to become a nanny where I feel I can make a difference and have a good relationship with a family, not a quick "hi" and "bye" at drop off and pick up! I look forward to speaking and hopefully meeting with you and your family to see if we are a good fit! Thanks again for your time!
