Being the second oldest of five children, I’ve pretty much grown up babysitting! In addition to running around after my own siblings, I’ve been fortunate enough to take care of a number of families as either a part-time sitter, after-school sitter, or a full-time summer nanny. My mother is also a Special Needs teacher, so I’ve been lucky enough to work with her students. (My mom teaches children around the fourth grade age with varying degrees of Autism). I love kids. They are true dreamers. I love partnering with them in that – standing in agreement with them that their dreams matter, that they matter, and that making cakes and then using different candies to “paint” a portrait of their family on them matters too!
I recently graduated with a B.F.A in Musical Theatre and Dance, and I love bringing the arts alive in the lives of children! Dance parties, “Frozen” sing-a-longs, improv games for the whole family – I am so there. I’m also very active and can’t get enough of the outdoors! I’d love to meet your family and help out in any way I can.

I love baking with kids! Drawing, writing, and arts & crafts are also at the top of my list. I'm trained in lots of different styles of dance and singing, so if any kids want to put on a musical in the living room, I'm so there! I also love outdoor adventures and sports!
