About Me

The second oldest of 6 children (and the oldest girl!), I have always had a strong inclination to working with children. I have lived in NYC for two years, having moved here to attend the American Academy of Dramatic Arts, from which I recently graduated. During my time at the Academy, I babysat for several families, worked for a childcare program at a church every Sunday evening, and assistant taught a musical theatre class with Christian Youth Theatre.

I have been babysitting for 10 years, and before coming to NYC, I was an assistant counselor at an after-school program in Richmond, VA. I assistant taught a class two summers in a row that helped children K-3 learn how to make healthy eating choices and they learned a new healthy recipe each day.

I spend most of my time exploring the city, seeing plays, reading, and learning to play the guitar. I seek creative opportunities for myself daily, and I believe creativity and fun should be encouraged and nurtured in children, while remaining disciplined and safe!

I have professional childcare experience with…

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