About Me

As a caregiver with a creative background, it has always been my goal to create a nurturing environment where children are able to thrive and have fun. In addition to six years experience as a babysitter and nanny, I have also worked as a volunteer art teacher for children in grades Pre-Kindergarten through 7th grade. My duties have included organizing and creating art projects to keep the children entertained while still learning, coordinating field trips, planning parties, tutoring, as well as after school and summer activities. In my spare time, I love to create art, particularly jewelry and sculpture. I also enjoy doing activities that can serve as sources of inspiration such as reading as well as outdoor activities.

Through all of my childcare experiences I have acquired excellent communication skills as well as wonderful relationships with both the children and families that I have worked for over the years. I pride myself on having a warm, fun, yet professional demeanor, as well as being an extremely reliable person. It is an absolute joy for me to be able to contribute to any child’s learning and creative environment.
