About Me

As a recent college graduate, I have been eager to get back into childcare and provide a positive, nurturing, and fun influence for young kids. I am a passionate, patient, and kind person who loves to make children laugh.

The children I got to know at Sierra Canyon Day Camp have made lasting impressions on me that have made children an integral part of who I am. Having worked with children of all ages, I am eager to find ways to encourage their imagination. As the Music and Theatre specialist at Sierra Canyon Day Camp, I introduced children to basic theatre games and exercises that allowed the kids to become anything their imaginations could create. I also led drawing and painting exercises where children would express themselves through visual art while listening to music. This not only gave children an appreciation of music of all genres but a sense of artistic taste. My philosophy with children is to lead by example and meet them halfway. Listening and mutual respect for both parties is key. I believe in getting children excited about the possibilities of the adults they will become (writers, musicians, doctors, ect.) while having fun and laughing along the way.
