She has  her own reliable car and a clear level 2 background check.  She works for AMP Therapy which is pediatric home health and really enjoys it. The flexibility allows her to continue her passion for working with children of all abilities!

Caring for kids has always been a lot of fun for Christie. She loves to be outside but is also a book worm. She enjoys cooking, swimming, biking, hiking, sew and playing board games. Ever since middle school, she has been blessed to work with children of all ages and abilities. After high school and college graduation, she enjoyed volunteering for two years serving the nation in the state of Minnesota as an AmeriCorps Member. Christie earned two educational awards throughout her years of service in an elementary school. Her experience included tutoring reading and math, coordinating volunteers, after school programs, summer school programs and service learning projects. Throughout that time and on to today, she has worked as a: professional babysitter, nanny, live-in nanny, personal care attendant (PCA) respite caregiver, private preschool teacher’s aide and occupational therapy assistant. These have been/are great roles for her since she  thrives off of structured routine and open collaboration with others. In the future, her career goals include working at the Occupational Therapist level in a school setting! Therefore, her master’s degree is her next step.
