About Me

I am an aspiring opera singer and music educator. I am currently pursuing my masters at Manhattan School of Music and recently graduated from Columbia University. I have experience working with children of all ages as a classroom teacher, private tutor, and babysitter. I am a passionate, energetic, and dedicated sitter and I love to share this passion, energy, and dedication with families.

Originally from Summit, New Jersey, I have always been a passionate student of music and the arts. I decided to attend Columbia University to get the most well-rounded education possible. During my time at Columbia, I was able to explore my passion for music education and working with children. I became an After-School Music Teacher at the Cornelia Connelly Center, a charter-like middle school for girls in the Lower East Side. I also interned with the Washington National Opera’s Education Department during the summer of 2010. And during my senior year, I opened a private voice studio and began teaching students of all ages. At the same time, I cultivated my own performing career and was accepted into many prestigious summer and graduate programs for vocal performance. After graduate school, I hope to sing professionally in Europe and throughout the United States.

As the child of two full-time working parents, I know first-hand the importance of a great sitter. I was lucky enough to have many inspiring babysitters while growing up and I love to be such a role model for the children I babysit!

Infants, Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school-aged children, Middle school-aged children
