Meet Autumn

Wednesday, August 29th, 2012

My name is Autumn Duckworth. I recently got married and moved to Honolulu in March of 2011. I am 29 years old and have had the privilege of working with children of all ages. Over the past 18 years, I have gained experience working for many families with children between the ages of 4 wks. old to 16 years of age as a Household Manager and Nanny.

My undergrad degree is in Food and Nutritional Sciences from Seattle Pacific University. I am certified in Adult, Child, and Infant CPR/AED as well as Basic First Aid. Currently, I have been working as a Registered Dietitian for WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) for the last three and a half years, coaching pregnant women through birth and labor as a Certified Birth Doula, and providing breastfeeding education and support as a Certified Lactation Counselor at WIC and for The Salvation Army Family Treatment Services program.

My free time in Hawaii is spent volunteering weekly at the Salvation Army Therapeutic Nursery, serving in the Childrens Ministry at my church in Kaimuki, hiking, running half marathons, being outdoors, and venturing about the island with my husband.

My hope and goal is to provide optimal care for your children by keeping them safe, providing activities to better stimulate the mind, encouraging healthy active living, helping make your job as parents easier, and creating an environment filled with fun! I’m looking forward to meeting and working with you to ensure that your family has the opportunity to be the best Ohana here in Hawaii!

Thank you again and blessings!
