About Me

I am originally from Bellingham, Washington, which is very community-based, so I am looking forward to working with a family here in the city. I made the move to pursue acting and I am loving the city so far!

It is extremely gratifying for me to spend time with kids. I love to encourage creativity and spontaneity as well as safety and common sense. I come from a large family, so there was always a new kid in the mix. Seeing the world through their eyes reminds me to hold on to my optimism. I love to have lots of fun while also maintaining focus. Along with theatre, I love to read, do fun accents, sing, bake, and go on walks to discover new areas of the city. Supporting my friends and remaining strong with my morals and ethics is part of who I am. Whether it is attending a performance that a friend of mine is in, teaching a child to share, or standing up for a friend or stranger in need, it is important for me to try to do what is right.

I have professional childcare experience with…

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

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

I am not fluent in German, but I know some.
I love to read aloud with all the voices!
I have a great ear for dialects and like to pretend I'm foreign.
I like doing arts and crafts.
I love to sing, and I also play the flute.
I enjoy baking (I make great banana bread and some killer cookies, among other things) and I am always looking for fun new things to make.
I know a lot of theatre games I could play with the kids!
