Letter to the family
My name is Kierstie and I'm currently living in Australia. I've been here for about 3 months now, and I'm interested in making use of my Holiday Work Visa as an Au Pair. I love nature, dance, art, music, health, spirituality, and fun. Life is all about well being for me.
I have an affinity for children in the sense that they feel understood by me. I am connected to my inner child and they sense that. I believe that children are extremely intelligent, and they also sense that respect. I grew up as a unique child who felt different from everyone around me, and so I have a soft spot for making children feel loved, accepted, and understood in the world.
As a massage therapist by trade, I have a healing touch. I can often get any baby to calm down with the same energy of love that I work with when I massage, and it translates everywhere else in my life. I can also play and use my imagination. I don't believe in physical discipline. I believe in learning how to effectively communicate with your children so they feel understood. I also believe in learning how to empower your children by loving themselves, and in turn, everyone else.
I prefer to work with babies, but I'm open to any age. I have two nieces, and some experience with babysitting. I am an animal lover, so pets are no problem. I prefer a clean home, with no drinking or smoking. I'm also willing to add massages to the agreement for the family who suits me.
I prefer to work on the northern beaches or anywhere close to the beach/nature. I have a U.S. drivers license, which makes it legal for me to drive in Australia (I just need a few lessons with the left side of the road switch). I am flexible but I prefer to not be on-call 24/7, I'd rather have days and hours scheduled ahead of time so that I know when I'm needed, which makes it easier to make plans for some alone time or travel.
I'd love for you to contact me, if any part of me is of interest to you! I'm open to chat about anything!
I am interested in connecting with children more and helping out a family in any way I can. I am willing to do housework, but I'd rather be a care taker than a maid.
