I've spent the past 2 years working full time with a pediatric ophthalmologist, so I've encountered a variety of children from a patient standpoint. I also have a 4-year-old goddaughter who I've intermittently cared for since she was a few months old! Prior to my full time job, I have experience from 100+ hours of volunteering with children at elementary schools, prepping high school students for SAT/ACT exams, and babysitting the children of family & friends. I love chatting with kids to understand their perspective on life. I spent much of my focus on child & family development while earning my Psychology, B. S. with a minor in Women and Gender Studies. Key Attributes: - Dog lover (sorry I'm allergic to cats!) - Reliable transportation - Nonsmoker - CPR/AED certified - Love cooking, baking, crafting and building pillow forts! - LGBT+ friendly Open to any questions & I can send you a resume if you'd like! Currently working on getting my MVR report processed!
