About Me

Since recently getting a B.F.A in Music and Theater, I have moved to New York to pursue a career in the arts, as well as education. My mother has been a music teacher with Minneapolis public schools for almost twenty years, and she continues to serve as a role model for me and my work. The opportunity to share meaningful, and interesting experiences with young learners make me very excited. As a mentor, I strive to see the moment of clarity in a child when they are able to grasp a challenging concept or new perspective that I can introduce to them. I try to promote learning by creating a hands-on, multiple medium approach. I am devoted to meeting the expectations of the parents, while also maintaining a safe and structured environment.

I have an extensive background in theater, music, and visual arts. I also share just as much passion for literature, dance, history, sciences, and sports. I love planning trips geared around educational themes, or creating games to make something ordinarily mundane into something exciting! I am a good cook that uses all natural foods and I can cater to any type of allergy or preference. I also am a neat-freak and enjoy the transformation of a dirty space into a clean and organized one. I look forward to meeting SmartSitting families, and hopefully sharing with children all the profoundness and beauty this world has to offer them.
