My name is Gabrielle, and I have plenty of experience working with all different ages. I have babysat/nannied over 10 years for over 15 families- 4 of which had children with special needs. Over the past several months I have cared for a 6-month-old most days of the week. Last summer I nannied for four children: ages 8, 6, and 2 year twins! Before that I nannied for an 8 months old boy and a 5-year-old little girl, and the previous summer was for two kids, ages 3 and 7. That's all as far as nannying care, but I have babysat for over 20 different families since I started my first job almost 10 years ago. My first babysitting job was caring for an infant with both a mental and physical disability, and I have worked for many other parents who had children with special needs. I have a lot of experiences with autistic children, and even worked with twin 9-month-olds all throughout high school! That was a unique experience, I assure you. I have plenty of references so feel free to ask!!
I'm great at my job because I truly enjoy doing it, but I also have a heavy background in child and family development. Studying rehabilitation and counseling has really allowed me to connect with the kids I care for. My favorite way to spend the day is to play around and figure out fun things to do. Kids' energetic and carefree nature is really something I click with, so I have no problem spending my day in that way! I am currently studying to become an occupational therapist, so that I may work with kids one day. The families I have worked for have really had a special connection with me and we always had a great relationship.
In addition to working with children, my other passion is philanthropy. I have been heavily involved in THON, Penn State's Dance Marathon against pediatric cancer and also the largest student-run philanthropy in the world, for all 4 years of college. I love everything I do!
Please consider me for helping you and your little ones!
