  About Me
 
Hi there,

My name is Katie. I am 24 years old and am eager to find a summer position as a nanny or a rehabilitation companion (full time Monday-Friday, with some weekend availability). I am originally from Port Hope, Ontario (about an hour east of Toronto), and came to Ottawa to pursue a career as a teacher.

I am passionate about working with people of all ages, ethnicity and ability. I have extensive experience working with children as well as individuals with Acquired Brain Injury (ABI). After studying linguistics and psychology at Queen's University (2013-2017), I became interested in child development and speech pathology. I decided to work alongside two incredible speech pathologists who taught me tangible skills when working with exceptionalities, cognitive development and social barriers. Through my schooling this year, I was fortunate enough to work in an ELD system class with students who were learning English as a second language. I was very involved in this school community and made many relationships with both students and staff.

Building strong connections with others is something that I�ve always excelled at. This is why I decided to become an educator because I am confident in my ability to connect with others as well as teach subjects beyond the classroom.

I am very compassionate, hard working, dependable, personable, enthusiastic, goofy/funny (or I like to think I am), creative, driven and organized. I am always looking out for those around me and that is something that I am translate into my work as I continue my education. I love to play sports (soccer, hockey, floorball), listen to music and be outside. I am clean, responsible and am very good with all animals (LOVE dogs).

*I am hoping to incorporate as many activities as I can outside because I value being active with my clients.

If you think I would be a good fit as a support or nanny for your family please don't hesitate to email me.

Thanks so much. I look forward to hearing from you.

Best,
Katie
