About Me

I am an actress/singer/dancer pursuing my passion in the city. Since graduating from college, I have been auditioning, taking classes, and getting a feel for the entertainment industry. My work as an artist has always been a huge part of my life, and I experience complete fulfillment chasing my dream and continuing to grow as a person and performer through each new project. In addition to performing, I worked for a childcare center for three and a half years while at school. I have babysat for various families, worked as a camp counselor, and been employed at a day care center for inner-city kids. I have an overwhelming love for children. They are earnest, genuine, and remarkably loving; they embrace the world with all its adventure and beauty and nothing makes me happier than watching them learn and grow.

When working with children, I am devoted to encouraging their individual creativity and coming up with new and fun ways for them to put their imaginations to good use. I am all about singing along to rocking tunes, playing dress up, putting on skits, and doing all kinds of silly, goofy things to get the artistic juices flowing! I enjoy watching kids discover new things in the world and in themselves while maintaining a consistently safe environment. I am diligent about following the guidelines set by the parents while making the experience as exciting and enjoyable as possible for the child! I love reading, seeing shows, having adventures in the city, taking classes, drinking inappropriately large cups of coffee, eating cupcakes, wearing high heels, attending church, seeing my beautiful friends and family, and learning something new and wonderful each and every day.

Infants, Toddlers, Pre-school aged children, Elementary school aged children, Middle school aged children, Children with special needs, Multiples
