Hey families! I'm an Australian artist and nanny, currently completing my Masters in Art Therapy at La Trobe, which includes 700 hours of clinical placement working with a range of health and psychological conditions. I love being active, finding fun activities and outings for us to go on, and hanging out at home cooking and doing arts & crafts and other creative games. I have over 10 years of experience with all age groups. I recently returned from au-pairing in London, and am now studying. I'm finishing up placement for the year and will have more time for last minute jobs and babysitting over the school holidays.
I have worked with children on the spectrum, though not at the severe end. I also have psychology and counseling training and clinical experience with a range of psychological conditions.
I am the eldest of 4 and have a large extended family, so have been babysitting from a young age, and have nannied since I finished highschool throughout both of my Bachelor degrees. I recently nannied and au-paired for two families in London for just over 12 months, and am looking for some casual or ongoing roles now that I'm back in Melbourne, although I have already committed to two roles, so only have availability for one more role of one day per week, or casual shifts. I'm comfortable and experienced with all age groups and have sole care experience with multiple children including new borns and twins.
I've taught private art lessons for many years, both individually and through a private art school. I was a peer tutor throughout my school years, I can also assist with primary homework.
