Hello, my name is Lauren! Enclosed is a portion of my resume:
I am CPR and First Aid trained. I have experience in a multitude of settings: nanny, teacher of early childhood education, babysitter, nanny-share, overnight newborn care for special needs triplets, after school...I have specific diagnosis experience caring for children and/or adults with the following: ADD, ADHD, hyperactivity, asthma, autism, cancer, dementia, both developmental and learning delays, anger management, emotional and behavioral issues, diabetes, food allergies, heart defects, pulmonary problems that include knowledge and use of equipment, administering medications, speech delays, volunteered for multiple children's organizations and St. Vincent's Orphanage, mentored foster children for the YCS program. I excel at managing multiples of children and motivating them to succeed. I have experience providing (but not limited to) the following: bathing/grooming/hygiene, applied behavior analysis, positive behavior support, body lifting, feeding, respiratory care. Sat on the Executive Board for three consecutive years on the Cinnaminson Elementary School Home and School Association which serves New Albany School and Eleanor Rush. Coached cheerleading, softball and soccer for Cinnaminson township. Currently I am one of the founding CEO's of the STOP panel and am a political advocate for Catholic Charities Providence House. I used to work as a care giver for VNA (Visiting Nurses Association) as a HHA several years ago. I stopped because I needed full time hours at the time. I have experience working with cognitively delayed, physically challenged and dual diagnosed persons for more than twenty years. I've worked in Group Homes in South Jersey, as well as Ancora Psychiatric Hospital with patients who were deemed not guilty by reason of insanity. Both of these settings, allowed me the opportunity to work with individuals with various physical health illnesses, different personalities, and with severe mental diagnoses.
I enjoy working with seniors. It gives me great joy to serve those in need. I'm easy to get along with, easy going, patient, caring, understanding, trust worthy, punctual, and treat others in the way that I want to be treated. I miss being a caregiver, thus is why I have decided to make myself available to serve others. One of my personal achievements is my ability to connect to all classes and races of people.
