Nanny And Summer Camp Counselor And Director
I've worked with children with and without special needs from the age of two weeks and older for 14 years now. As a director and counselor of two well respected summer camp programs in Santa Rosa, a full time nanny and a personal aide, I've had many years of professional training and am certified through the Red Cross in CPR and First Aid. One of these two camps has been around for 60 years now and is sought after by many other recreation and parks departments for its specific expertise in producing such an exceptional program. The second camp is a special needs camp that just completed its 50th summer and is an equally well renowned program. Through my work at these camps, I've professionally attended and now lead training in water safety, handling emergencies, leadership skills, building self esteem, and positive discipline. More training consists of cooking, canoeing, archery, song and game, arts and crafts, skits, nature activities, and fire building. Apart from my camp experience, I have been a babysitter and a nanny for 7 different families. Most recently, I was the nanny of a family with two boys. An infant and a toddler who are both brimming with energy. I then nannied two 2-year-old girls and am currently nannying a 1-year-old girl in Culver city. All of the families I've nannied for required me to drop off and pick up the kids at school, pack lunches, prep meals, plan activities, give the kids baths, get them in or out of bed, keep up with regular housekeeping such as dishes and laundry, and many other typical tasks. I absolutely love to nanny and build relationships with the families I work with. I've always loved working with children, and with the professional and College level training I have under my belt I'm confident that my natural way of holding authority while creating a fun and comfortable environment, is a safe and desirable environment for every family.
