About Me

Since graduating from college and moving to the Big Apple, I have been finding fulfillment on stage and off working as a performer in musical theater and also investing in the lives of children. I’ve been fortunate to sit for several families on a temporary basis between performing jobs and also work with children as a camp counselor. I also work as a personal assistant and at the front desk of a fantastic gym. I love working creatively with kids and enjoy using my performing skills to help kids harness their energy and think outside the box! I absolutely love getting kids to focus their energies through improvisation games. I have found that this kind of structured play is a great way to connect with kids.

Along with performing, I am passionate about fitness. I am a member and front desk associate at a unique boutique gym in Hell’s Kitchen and love being a part of a welcoming and socially active fitness community! I also enjoy literature and I am currently working my way through the “1001 Books to Read Before you Die List.”

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