I am passionate about well-being, connection and creativity. I dedicate much of my life to personal growth and bring this practice into all areas of my life. I was born and raised on Vancouver Island and I am passionate about creating beauty in the world. I have two other profiles for housecleaning and cooking & I feel that they all blend together as offering a dynamic and flexible caregiving service. I am conscientious, personable and responsible with great references! Please don't hesitate to reach out even if our schedules don't quite match - what I have posted is a ballpark and I do have flexibility here.
I have worked with kids all through my 20's and now into my 30's. It comes easily to me and I find a lot of joy in it. Most recently (ending in 2022) I worked as a house manager/nanny for a family in Oak Bay. Prior to that, in 2016 I nannied in Victoria, BC. When I started the children were 1 and 3. I stayed with them for two years, working full time, and sometimes caring for their cousins in addition. I took care of all primary caregiving roles as well transportation, play dates and household chores. In July 2012, I flew to Australia and worked as a full time aupair in the outback for three girls aged 6 months, 2 years and 4 years. In Vancouver (June - August 2011) I worked as a bike instructor at Pedalheads, teaching children as young as three, in groups of 10 or more, how to bike. And through middle school I did lots of babysitting and volunteered at after-school care facilities. Most recently I have worked as head chef in in Alberta bush cooking for 50+tree planters per day. It was a fantastic experience - I loved the level of responsibility, providing delicious food for people and being involved in the camp. Although not directly related to childcare, I do feel it has impacted how I moved through the world and what I bring to any working environment. Overall I absolutely love working with kids, and am excited to find the right fit again. Additional Experiences/Qualifications: FoodSafe
