About Me

I hail from East Tennessee, where I grew up in a large family. Throughout grade school I was the go-to babysitter for my 9 nieces and nephews, as well as the town babysitter, swim instructor, soccer coach, and lifeguard at the public pool. While attending college, I worked with children in many different aspects. I volunteered for two summers in Guatemala and Ecuador, where I worked in orphanages. I taught youth soccer and drama camps (two of my passions), worked for the college pool, was a babysitter for many local families, and worked every Sunday in the nursery of a local church. Since graduating college, I have found myself in many child related jobs – nannying, teaching, coaching, family photography, etc.

When working with children, I always bring excitement and creativity to the job. I love art projects. I also play the guitar and love to sing – and between my love for Pete Seeger and my work at Gymboree Play and Music I have developed a fondness for singing kid’s songs. As an actor, I am very drawn to the in the moment spontaneity and vigor children have. I encourage kids to keep playing, to use their imaginations, and to dream big!
