About Me

For the past seven years, I have been working in a daycare setting where I enjoyed opportunities to help plan fun and enriching activities for kids. I especially enjoyed opportunities that allowed me to help kids appreciate and participate in the arts. I also have been babysitting in homes for over ten years. My two main passions in life are theatre and working with kids. The most important part of both is being present. I believe in actively participating in children’s lives to help them achieve their full potential. I also enjoy helping children understand their schoolwork and enjoy working to help them achieve success on every level.

I love working with kids because I believe they are very honest and always present. They are also just fun to be around. I find them inspiring. Besides participating in and attending theatre my other passions are reading, attempting to learn how to cook, attending concerts, and art museums. I love incorporating all of these things into my passion for childcare!
