I am the eldest of seven children, including twins. Since I was a child, I've learned to care for younger children by way of feeding, cleaning, bathing, even changing two diapers at once. Due to my passion for working with children and experience with six younger siblings, I've come across a variety of opportunities to share my gift.
I began as a babysitter for family and friends, and have since expanded my interests. I have experience babysitting children ranging from infancy to 13 years of age. I also have experience with babysitting special needs children, such as a boy with Down Syndrome and another boy who was terminally diagnosed with brain cancer.
I have also worked as a counselor for a program through a church and also worked in the nursery at that location. I have also been an intern for the a preschool and was babysitting for the family with the terminally ill child. I worked consistently over the last four years, including immediate assistance after the diagnosis.
While I do of my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology and am currently taking graduate classes at NIU. My true passion is working with children.
