About Me

“Why fit in when you were born to stand out?” I like to think that this particular Dr. Seuss philosophy has been a constant reminder my whole life and has gotten me to where I am today. My work as a performer encourages self-acceptance and, more importantly, self-love that extends itself over to others. I like to concentrate on activities that get children to think as well as get them to free their minds; all in an effort to get creative!

Although I am currently in school, I started out my babysitting career with infants and have no fear of that! I actually quite enjoy it! When I would babysit older children, I would incorporate my duties/responsibilities as a babysitter (cooking, tidying, etc.) as a learning and bonding opportunity for the kids. I believe that this is something I like to factor in with the children I babysit: community. I believe that we are meant to live in community with one another and what does that community look like? Playing together, learning together, cleaning, and recognizing times we can show care for another person are highlights of things I like to work in with children. I experienced this sense of community when I go to Haiti to volunteer. There is, truly, nothing like it.

When I’m not in school or at rehearsal, I enjoy reading on a rainy day, going to shows, hot yoga, church/Bible studies, and just hanging out with my buddies, of course!
