I am hopeful to find a part-time position with a family that I can connect with and support however needed. I am looking mainly for reoccurring, weekend hours or evenings after 6. My career began in the social service realm. During this time I worked at a residential treatment center and supported mothers as they cared for their children ranging from 0-5 years old. In this role, I provided respite and did anything from changing diapers, making bottles, or playing games with the older kids while their mothers got some rest. I also created therapeutic playgroups for the children. As a caregiver, I am happy to plan a day of crafts, make lunch, or rock a child gently to sleep. My philosophy centers around kindness, education, and fun. I am able to play with children as if I am right along side their imagination, while also implementing routine and setting a great example.
