About Me

Since graduating from college, I have been exploring the city and finding ways to make a difference. I believe that the future starts with our youth, and I am passionate about helping shape children’s futures for the better by expanding on their interests and hobbies, and helping them realize their potential.

I spent much of my life volunteering with children and have been babysitting since the age of 13. I am inspired by all of the children I have had the privilege of working with, and I enjoy helping guide them as the become who they are meant to be!

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, writing, cooking and baking, exercising, playing sports, and exploring the cultural hub that is New York! There is always something new and exciting to learn and experience, and I hope to inspire children to have the same love of life and desire to see things through their own eyes.

I have professional childcare experience with…

Infants, Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Children with special needs

I will be SmartSitting while…

Writing!

In 5 years, I hope to be…

A happy, successful writer!

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children…

I enjoy all things creative and active, and hope to share some of my favorite things with children to help expose them to new things, while also cultivating things they are already interested in. I love to write, read, bake and cook, sing, dance and explore! I also love sports - basketball, yoga, dance, volleyball, running, baseball/softball, tennis and more!
