I am a nursing student at the University of Wisconsin, entering my 2nd semester of my junior year. Pediatrics is one area of nursing that I am actually interested in pursuing, so what better way to get experience working with kids than to spend time taking care of them in their own home setting? I have experience caring for children from a few months of age through school age and additionally, I have volunteered at a kindergarten classroom in my hometown from October 2012 - May 2013. Kids of all ages, from newborns to big kids always put a smile on my face and I love interacting, playing, talking and teaching them. My hobbies include reading, listening to music, playing board games with family and friends, and enjoying the fresh outdoors (whether it's hiking, biking, swimming, and more..!). I have 10+ years of dance experience in ballet, jazz, and tap and have performed in productions of The Nutcracker in Rochester, MN over the course of 5+ years. I love to paint and one of my favorite pastimes is chalk art on my parents' driveway, so art is definitely a love of mine. If I sound like I'd be a good fit for your family, don't hesitate to shoot me a message and see if we can coordinate!
Oh and P. S.: I have an amazing German Shepherd/Belgian Malinois at home so I have no troubles taking care of your furry "children," too!
