A Passionate Youth Educator, Creative, And (in-training) Trauma-informed Specialist.

Hi! I'm Zoë (she/her) / *vaccinated*! I have over 5 years of baby-sitting experience, and have spent the past two years working at both the Boys and Girls Club of Portland as well as Serendipity Center (an alternative therapeutic school for children with complex learning needs, pre-COVID). I have been looking to offer personalized, child-centered, play-oriented education, support and/or standard babysitting to families looking for extra assistance and care during these unexpected times. I am also happy to co-create a loose curriculum for your child to supplement the lack of in-person education they may not be receiving due to COVID school closures/online school. I have a BA titled "The Mind Body Bridge Between Health + Healing", which explores somatic psychology, food justice, anti-racism, social justice, as well as trauma-informed ed. I love photography and any/all things creative, questions, plant based eating, baking, dogs, crafting and outdoor exploring!

We found Zoë on our first time using Care.com and couldn't be happier that we matched! My husband and I both work from home, just moved to Portland, and raising a baby during the pandemic has been a challenge. Enter Zoë. Sweet, kindhearted, calm, smart and easy going. She and our 7 month old connected right away and instantly bonded. Her background is unique and so interesting, I learned a lot from her about child development and can't wait until the next time she comes to play.
