About Me

After I graduated college, I moved to Sarasota, Florida for a year and worked at Florida Studio Theatre with their award winning Write-A-Play program teaching outreach workshops and performing in the Children’s shows. I then moved to Missouri for a summer and developed the curriculum for their Children and Teen Summer Theater Academies while also performing in their summer season. Then, I moved to NYC to pursue my career in acting in improvisation.

I have been babysitting since I moved to the city for an Upper West Side family, as well as personal assisting for them. I plan after school activities, take the child where she needs to go, do light cleaning, snack prep, homework help, light errands, as well as managing the child’s appointments and her parent’s calendars. I also work front desk at a yoga studio.

I love to read, watch documentaries, see live theater, do yoga, eat healthfully, and scream for my Cincinnati Bengals when they are on the television. Creativity, education, and staying active/healthy are three things I hold very dear, and I bring them into every household I work in.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children…

When I am with children, I love to share my love of school. I really enjoy homework help: I love guiding kids to the answers without just giving it to them. It is more rewarding for me and them! I also love to play volleyball and watch football, but I am a very outdoorsy person so tag, etc are very fun for me! Finally, I've always been a big reader, and I love to read to kids or recommend books that I think they would like that would be on their reading level. I've even researched books for kids based on genres they tell me they like, it's fun!
