I am a caring, creative, hard-working, versatile and detail-oriented individual seeking part or full-time work with children or animals or both! I have reliable transportation and an extremely flexible schedule. I have a good deal of experience with children ranging in age from newborn babies to 10-year-olds, and especially with kids in the preschool-kindergarten age range. I started as a "Mother's Helper" when I was 13, and after a few years of regular babysitting with multiple families and volunteer work during the summer program at a local Montessori school, I was hired there full-time as a primary child caregiver and teacher's aide. I also cared for the school pets (rabbits, guinea pigs, a dog and a cat), and have been completely enamored with animals all my life. I just completed 2 years at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn as a Fine Arts major, and have since returned home to Marin County to start earning and saving some money to pursue a degree in Animal Science/Sustainable Agriculture. I have lived and worked at a bio-intensive organic farm in Petaluma where I gained invaluable experience in hands-on, sun up to sun down honest labor. I also worked for the Conservation Corps North Bay at the IVC Organic Farm & Garden while attending classes at the College of Marin. I am now in transition from that job looking for work in the care giving field that will allow me to earn some savings while working with great kids/animals who are seeking somebody like me to provide unlimited time, care and effort for whatever their need/situation. I am CPR certified, have a car, insurance, and an immaculate record. I can provide references and any other desired information upon request. Many thanks for your interest!
