Hey! I'm Lauren!
I moved around a lot growing up because my dad was in the military, so making friends quickly and getting involved in community activities has been so important my entire life! It's made me motivated, intuitive, and a quick study.
I've always loved working with kids, helping them succeed, and be creative. In high school I began babysitting and serving with the kids team at the church my family went to. In college, I worked as an RA in the freshman dorms where creating community, coming up with fun activities, and being a mentor to incoming students was paramount. The summer before my senior year I worked as a camp counselor at French Woods Camp for the Performing Arts in upstate New York, living, teaching and hanging with the most amazing kids - mainly girls aged 7-11. During my senior year of college I was a nanny for the sweetest and smartest 3 year old and the park was definitely our favorite place!
I have worked with children one on one and in large groups, primarily with ages 2 to 18. My favorite thing about working with young kids is watching them discover the world, their likes and dislikes, and how innately inventive they are. When working with older kids, I love helping them discover and meet their goals while enhancing their leadership skills.
My experience with coordinating events, organizing, and communicating vital information lends itself well to ensuring that expectations are met and exceeded.
I would love the opportunity to meet your family!
