About Me

When I was two years old, my parents enrolled me in The Stoliarsky School Of Music back in Australia. Some of my earliest memories include me singing songs like “Who Stole The Cookie From The Cookie Jar” with a group of toddlers and a very patient and inspiring teacher! It’s with great pleasure that I can now fill this role in a child’s life.

As well as being a performer, I’ve taught singing and music for over ten years, worked in outside hours school care facilities, and was a founding member of the “Touch A Heart With Your Art” foundation. As a babysitter, I am responsible, structured, well-prepared, firm but fun! Incorporating my passion for creativity, music, and performance into my work as a sitter is so important to me, not to mention rewarding. In this fast-paced world I think it’s important to show kids that we can find something magical and inspirational in the world every day just by opening our eyes to the possibilities!

I have professional childcare experience with…

Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Children with special needs, Multiples

I will be SmartSitting while…

I create my next theatrical music show called "Imaginarium".

In 5 years, I hope to be…

Performing my own shows for sell-out audiences in New York and around the world!

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

I love to make up songs, sing and dance, read, go to the park and throw frisby or a ball around, cook yummy, healthy food (keeping in mind I am a vegan and have limited experience dealing with meat), making arts and crafts, and playing dress-up!
