About Me

There is nothing that fulfills me more than working with children. I started babysitting when I was thirteen years old and I absolutely fell in love with it. I love working with children because it involves being creative, constant interaction with young minds that are just discovering the world around them, and a lot of love.

As a fashion designer, I am constantly pushing my mind to be creative. Working with children challenges my creativity on a daily basis and allows me to explore the world with a fresh pair of eyes. I have had the opportunity to work with children of all ages and it is always a very different experience with each child and family. When engaging with children, I like to make the learning experience fun and interesting. I believe I have the tools to do just that due to my studies in psychology and my life experience.

I love designing, sewing, dancing, signing and doing crafts. My hobbies include reading, taking long walks, ballet, visiting museums, live music, and exploring New York.

I have professional childcare experience with…

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