  About Me
Hi. I am an honors student at UVic, studying psychology and social work. I am also an artist 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. Having lived in Vitoria for 10 years, I have explored and traveled much of it. I currently work as a gardener, but I miss working with kids and would love to fill my last bit of summer with fun, rewarding work that I know so well.

  Work Experience & Education Background
6 years experience, 2 references
I have worked with kids all through my 20's and absolutely love it. It also comes easily to me and I find a lot of joy in it.

Most recently (ending in 2016) I worked as a nanny for a family here in Victoria. 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.

Prior to that, 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.
