About Me

Since moving to New York in August of 2013, I have settled into an apartment in Brooklyn, began teaching swim lessons to children and adults of all ages, and I sing with the unique choral ensemble, C4: The Choral Composer/Conduc tor Collective.  Not only am I a musician, but I am also a 2nd Degree Black Belt in Tae Kwon Do, a synchronized swimmer, a yogi, and dancer.  I enjoy learning and experiencing different cultures as I have traveled to Germany, Belgium, Lebanon, Puerto Rico, London, Canada, and Italy. I grew up consuming a healthy Mediterranean diet  and I continue to cook meals that consist of vegetables and protein.

I thrive on the high-energy of children and build on their creativity to help them grow and maintain a pro-active attitude towards learning.  I am respectful and understanding of families of all different backgrounds and ethnicities.  Safety is always of the utmost importance when caring for children, as I have consistently worked with children around and in water through many jobs as a swim instructor and lifeguard.  I am flexible to adapt to families’ rules and policies and knows the happiness and well-being of a young child is priority.  I believe I can be the punctual, reliable, kind-hearted young woman you seek to care for your loved ones.
