About Me

After graduating college, I decided I wanted to focus more on the dance side of my training and began to commit to getting my choreography off the ground. Currently, I am the assistant to the choreographer for a new ballet company. To keep my singing chops up, I am also in an a cappella group. Coming from a large Italian family, food has always been a passion of mine, which also resulted in my love for children. With a million younger cousins running around, it’s hard not to beam from their smiling faces and high energy.

When it comes to childcare, I firmly believe of not only exposing children to outdoor activities/exercise but also allowing them to creatively express themselves. I love all forms of art, whether it is music, painting/drawing, etc. I played the clarinet for 8 years and can work my way around a piano. I also played various sports throughout my youth, and with a father who is a sports fanatic, physical activities are very much still a part of my life. In my free time, I love trying new restaurants, going to museums and the theater and discovering new things the city has to offer as often as I can.

I have professional childcare experience with…

Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children
