Certified Child Life Specialist/Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist With 9+ Years' Experience Working With Children With Skilled Nursing Needs
I am a Certified Child Life Specialist and Certified Therapeutic Recreation Specialist and have spent the past 9.5 years working with children ages 6 months to 6 years with skilled nursing needs at a pediatric medical day care. I have experience planning and implementing activities to help children reach social and cognitive developmental milestones. I also have experience with children ages 6-12 years from the time I coached children's fitness classes. I am CPR certified. I am comfortable working with children who have skilled nursing or special needs. I have worked with children with a variety of diagnoses, such as seizure disorders, severe asthma, traumatic brain injuries, leukemia, osteogenesis imperfecta, Down syndrome, autism spectrum disorder, sickle cell disease, and pulmonary hypertension, as well as many others.
I am in the process of applying to schools to obtain my doctorate in Physical Therapy, so am unable to work a traditional work day, as I have prerequisite classes that I am taking.
