About Amanda

PATIENT-HONEST-ENTERTAINING-UNDERSTANDING I have experience being a caregiver for people of all ages, and find it to be the most rewarding. I find that my passion for humor and the arts, paired with my huge heart, dedication to commitments and understanding of children is what makes me a perfect candidate to be a caregiver. I have been a natural caregiver from 9 years old when I lost my mother. As the oldest girl, I was forced to provide care for my father and siblings. Most of my experiences have been part of earning my degree as an Art Educator, but I have also had jobs as a sitter and camp art instructor. My favorite job in the past was working for a family with 5 children between 6-14 yrs old. I provided rides to and from school/activities, prepared health conscious meals and snacks, cleaned the house as needed and gave support to the children in their educational and personal lives. I am a warm, hardworking people-person, and would consider it to be a loss if I didn't find a place to use my abilities.
