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.

I'm Shelbie: 18, the third child of six, and I've been a paid babysitter for kids for about six years now. I've babysat children from ages infant-14 years old, and have quite a bit of experience with special-needs children as well. I've worked for over a dozen different families, and I absolutely love watching kids! I will make a point to play with the kids if they want to (outside or inside), and I won't have them sit down and watch television all day, unless I have specific parental requests to do so. I really enjoy doing crafts (I'll be an interior designer, so I'm fairly artsy) and sports/games if that's something your kids are into (if they're not, that's cool too) and I enjoy all kinds of games. I'm always ready for lots of fun and creative play---I've lived with five siblings and plenty of pets my whole life, and we're not easily bored! Kids enjoy having me around, and I'm ready to think up new games and play most anything! I hope to someday have a family of my own, so nannying is, in a way, like getting a preview!

I have served as a full-time and part-time caregiver for households ranging from 4-month-old baby to 15-year-old children. I have over 15 years experience working with children. Working with children for so many years, I have gained a vast amount of knowledge and experience that has made me be the best at what I do. With me, your children will have fun playing and learning rather than doing noneducational and unhealthy activities. I will also make sure they have all they need and are always safe with me whilst the parents are away. I enjoy working with children in indoors and outdoors, creating art and craft projects, while making sure your children have a fun time in a child friendly environment. I am a well-motivated, hard working, goal oriented, honest, responsible, flexible, reliable and dependable person that takes their work seriously and always aims to achieve my goals. I am a fun friendly person. I like to read informative and knowledgeable books. I have a college degree. I am looking forward to meeting you and your children.
