Since graduating college I have loved being able to help parents create nurturing environments in the midst of busy schedules, while simultaneously enjoying the flexibility to achieve my own goals. In Austin, TX, I worked as a Sunday school teacher for two years as well as nannied while I established and ran a landscape design company. Since moving to New York, I have integrated working part-time nanny and babysitting opportunities with a full-time landscape design job and small jewelry-making business.
As a caregiver, I believe in setting positive examples for children as a means of teaching them how to behave in a respectful and mature way. I think nurturing the emotional health of a child and guiding them through discussions about their behavior and how it affects others is the most successful way to manage discipline. In addition to working with children I enjoy cooking, baking, drawing, hosting dinner parties, traveling, dancing and gardening.
