About Me

Since I was nine, I have always been passionate about martial arts and karate which has lead me to work with countless wonderful families. Working in preschools, dojos, studios and babysitting; I have taught kids groups and private lessons that have fulfilled me in ways I could never imagine. Seeing the positive reinforcement karate has given my students has made me devoted to the learning process. It brings me so much joy to see how the empowering influences that shaped my life, shape theirs. Going after your dreams, embracing challenge, working with others and always striving for improvement were big factors for my students and me. I love working with kids because we grow together in so many ways!

Along with martial arts and working with kids, I love theatre and acting. It is another of my life’s passions and my heart’s goal to make a career. I am big on creative processes. I also love to cook (and clean), travel by train, read, and spend quality time with those important to me. By working with SmartSitting, I hope to be a positive inspiration to families and ease parent’s minds when they need an extra hand!
