|Hi! My name is Jack McGarvey and I am a 23 year old college grad. I recently moved to Telluride to work on the mountain for the winter season. I am an avid outdoorsman, musician, film nerd, and book worm. I enjoy working with kids in any capacity- I have served as a lifeguard for over ten years now teaching children of all ages how to swim, and I helped run an enrichment program for at-risk boys while I was a student at Colorado College. At the moment, I am interested in pursuing a career either in law or in education, however I find myself leaning more towards teaching as I believe working and interacting with younger generations is incredibly important. I work best with kids 5 and up. Looking forward to meeting you and your family!|
|I am a New Zealander who has lived in the US for 40 years. I began a general nursing program at Auckland Hospital after high school and absolutely loved working in the children’s wards. I came to the US with my ex-husband who did post-doctoral research at Stanford University in California. I completed a degree in Sociology/Psychology and Anthropology at UCLA with the intention of working with children. However after a sabbatical in Grenoble, France, I fell in love with the mountains and skiing and moved to Aspen where I taught skiing for almost 20 years (both children and adults). I also spent several years working in the Aspen Montessori School. Children bring a smile to my face and I am so enjoying looking after the little ones again. Ages infancy through preschool|
|Hello! My name is Alyssa Serignese and I am from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I moved to Telluride with
plans of just staying for the winter, and here I am two years later falling more in love with this place
each day. I have lived and studied in Italy and graduated from West Virginia University with a B.S. in
Marketing in 2013 and currently work at the Telluride Tourism Board as a Marketing Administrator and
Destination Concierge. In my spare time I enjoy skydiving (yes jumping out a plane on purpose!), skiing,
yoga and anything that involves the outdoors. This past summer, I traveled to Peru and completed the
55-mile trek to Machu Picchu which was a life changer. I come from a large (and loud) Italian family and
have been babysitting and involved in child care for about 10 years. I love being outdoors with children
and exploring the area, but I also think its very important to get them using their creative sides through
puzzles, arts and crafts, drawing and more! Every child is unique and I love catering to all of their
different personalities and needs. I look forward to meeting your family! Ages: Infancy & up.
|My name is Mareya (pronounced muh-ray-uh). Don’t worry, I’m used to people saying my name wrong! This is my second winter in Telluride. I work for the Telluride Adaptive Sports Program and love it! Helping people with disabilities to ski is something I’m very passionate about. In the summers I work for Outward Bound taking teenagers and adults into the wilderness on backpacking, climbing, and mountaineering trips. Over the past four years with Outward Bound and various adaptive sports programs I have gained a lot of experience working with youth of various ages. What I enjoy most about my work is the character development that comes from people pushing their limits and taking time to reflect in the wilderness. I have my Wilderness First Responder and CPR certifications. In my free time I love to ski and snowboard, rock climb, dance, knit, read, and cook. I’m looking forward to meeting your children and having a great time with them!|

|Hello, I’m Camila, I was born in Argentina and grew up in Miami. I came to Telluride 2 years ago for a weekend and loved it so much that I ended up moving here. Growing up my mom had a daycare and was a swimming teacher so I grew up with kids around me and by the time I was
in high school I was teaching kids to swim. I am now entering my third season in ski school teaching the young ones to ski! I love being around kids, playing with them and teaching them new activities. I hope to meet you soon! Ages infancy onward
