I am a creative, experienced, fun and engaging babysitter! I am a professional actor and singer based out of New York, and I am enthusiastic about dedicating time to caring for children while inspiring creative play and using my artistic passions to help young people grow, learn and create some art of their own.
Raised in Sonoma County, CA, I was Waldorf educated through high school, and participated in many “hands-on” activities, which deeply enriched my academic life. As a young person, I was exposed to all kinds of theater, music, and dance, and I created my own academic textbooks with original essays and illustrations. I learned to knit, sew, sculpt, weld and carve, worked on my school’s organic/biodynamic farm and I cooked healthy meals once a week that my classmates and I sold for school lunches. My family also did a lot of traveling so I was exposed to many cultures as a young woman, journeying to such destinations as Indonesia, China, and Cuba.
After graduating from Summerfield Waldorf High School, I completed my B.A. with a major in Theatre at Smith College in Northampton, MA. During college, I spent my summers in California, where I consistently provided childcare privately to families and served as a teaching artist for Sonoma County Repertory Theatre’s Summer Theatre program for 6-9 year olds. As a caregiver, I am committed to engaging the children I am working with, building trust and respect, and facilitating imaginative learning along the way. In my own life, I am passionate about singing, acting and dancing, traveling, cooking and eating delicious and interesting foods, gardening, reading, writing and creating. I look forward to meeting families and sharing my passions with their children!
