  About Me
Hello, my name is Shari, and I thank you for taking the time to read about my background.

I am a mother of 6, 4 of whom are adults, with two teenage boys at home. I have extensive babysitting & nannying experience, going back to my early teens.

Over the years, I have cared for families with as many as 4 children under the age of 8 all at one time, while preparing nutritious meals, picking up/dropping off at school, and performing light house cleaning tasks.

I am currently Occupational First Aid Level 2 certified, which means my first aid training is more in depth than basic or emergency first aid, and I served as the First Aid attendant at my last place of employment for 2 years.

I am also very comfortable around seniors, having worked as a server in an independent retirement community home, and I am planning to go back to school in May 2022 to get my certification in Recreational Therapy in the field of Geriatrics.

I look forward to talking with you about how I can meet your familyís needs for care.

  Work Experience & Education Background
10 years experience, 0 references
I started off as a Motherís helper in 1984, then took a babysitterís course with first aid training, starting my own business as a babysitter to families around my neighbourhood.

By 1990, I had moved into more of a nanny role with one of the families I cared for, as they needed me to look after their 3 girls for 5 days a week while their mother went to work. I was responsible for bathing, prepping/feeding lunch and putting down the 2 year old for a nap, then waking her up and walking her to school where we would pick up her older sisters. Once home, I would entertain the youngest while overseeing that the older two completed homework, then prepare/feed them dinner, spent time playing games with them, then ensured that they all had a bath and tucked them into bed. I looked after this family full time for a year, then part time for another 2 years while I went to college.

From 1995 to now, I have been raising my own family of 6, so the babysitting jobs I have taken have been sporadic, but I believe it is fair to say that I have retained the skills from those earlier years, and have developed new ones along the way.

I have kept on top of my first aid training, updated my Food Safe certification, and Iím always learning new skills to provide the best care possible. It is important to me that everybody I look after feels safe and nurtured, and I will go the extra mile to ensure that happens.

Heidi Ferch 
Heidi was the chef at Caleb Village in Moose Jaw, SK - an independent retirement community where I worked from August 2014 to November 2016. She can attest to the fact that in my position as server there, that I took great care in looking after our senior residents. I not only served them food, but on my days off I volunteered to come by once a week to host a craft program. During that time, they would socialize and work on projects together, while I provided tea, coffee and snacks, and also help them with their projects as needed. I left to move back to BC so I could be closer to my parents and adult children.
