I have been caring for children since I was a teenager, assisting with the care of my younger sister, and later with my niece and nephew. My experience extends to helping families with multiple children for either an afternoon or evening, or up to a week at a time. I have worked with children and teenagers between the ages of 3-18 in several fields of education, which has included recreational and science-related settings. For example, I am a certified snowboard instructor, and have also supervised groups of up to 10 children in science and outdoor leadership programs. I deeply enjoy opportunities to interact with youth, be adventurous, and teach new skills!
