About Me

I am a Wisconsin native, and have been living in the city for over eight years now. I think my artistic spirit and genuine personality help me to relate to both kids and parents alike. I appreciate the flexibility that babysitting allows me as a performer, but also thoroughly enjoy working with kids. They are always exploring, expanding boundaries because they don’t know how not to, and teaching me things about myself.

Over the years I’ve had quite a bit of experience working with kids. While in Wisconsin I was the assistant coach for the Lake Geneva Middle School gymnastics team. Most recently I developed an interactive health and fitness workshop for The Intrepid Museum as a part of their exclusive all girl summer camp – Camp Goals for Girls. I am also currently babysitting for three NYC families. As a performer and dancer for over fourteen years, I am naturally drawn to fitness and healthy living. I obtained my personal training certification in 2010 through W.I.T.S. at City College of New York. When not performing or training, I am an avid foodie, lover of music, and explorer of this wonderful city that we live in!
