About Me

More than anything, I enjoy being part of a creative process. I am happily dedicating my life to working in the arts and teaching and working with kids. I love opportunities to teach my craft, and celebrate the theater/artistic world. I want to ensure that every opportunity that I encounter is meaningful, which is why childcare interests me so much.

At Binghamton University, I was a member of the Scholars Program – a leadership program for exemplary students. I was a double major and was on the Dean’s List every semester, while participating in main stage productions and writing as senior opinion columnist for the student-run newspaper. I even took the opportunity to study abroad for a summer in Chile (and I can speak conversational Spanish). During my other summers, I taught theater to kids, which was one of the most rewarding things I have ever done.

I’m a natural born “big sister” – I am a big sister, myself, so I have the babysitter gene within me. I love to help people out – I’m that girl that edited her friends’ papers for fun! I love to give advice and appreciate the importance of laughter and having a sense of humor. I’m active, love to walk everywhere, exercise, and am very into exploring new kinds of healthy foods. I am all about achieving balance in life.
