Nanny in Victoria

I am a recent graduate of Environmental Science (B......) at Trent University. I thoroughly enjoy working with people especially children. Additionally, I believe I have a specific skill set that your family would consider an asset. Through my many years as a Camp Counselor I have polished my ability to be flexible, adapt to any situation, and to take initiative on a multitude of tasks. I have been trained by the Easter Seal Organization on behavior support with young children, personal care, and risk assessment. I also have an updated First Aid with CPR-C, as well as Wilderness First Aid. My experience as Leadership Coordinator with the BC Easter Seals organization has provided me with many transferable skills that could meld into any position. Furthermore, I feel that my background and training in working with youth and children with special needs has provided me with the knowledge to adjust any program or activity in order to encompass all needs. Also, I feel my work ethic, compassion and creative nature would be an ideal fit for your family. In closing, I want to take the opportunity to thank you for your consideration of my resume and I hope that I will hear from you in the near future.

In particular, I was a part of the Challenger LIT program. This program focused on responsibility, awareness of leadership potential, consideration of what is leadership, and how leadership can play a part in one's own life. Activities were based on teamwork, trust, group dynamics, communication, cooperation and many other skills. These programs were introduced while at the camp and also on a multi-night paddling and camping trip.
