Hello! I am an artist, coach and avid gardener, with dreams of incorporating art, counseling, my own family and farming into a life on the gulf islands in the near future. I grew up on the mainland, but Vancouver island is home.

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 nanny for a family in Victoria. 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. Overall I absolutely love working with kids, and am excited to find the right fit again. Additional Experiences/Qualifications: FoodSafe I am willing to negotiate my salary, though I know that I offer excellent child care ( as well as housecleaning and cooking) which is backed by my references. Additionally, my education at post-secondary and external personal studies in somatic therapy add additional value to my services.
