About Me

For as long as I’ve been passionate about music, I’ve been equally as passionate about children. I started babysitting at a young age and held several full-time nanny positions throughout college. When I am off tour, I am a professional nanny and personal assistant. I have over ten years of nanny experience including full-time, part-time, live-in, and travel, for children of all ages.

I have been fortunate to get the chance to work for some incredible families over the years and many of my temp jobs have turned into subsequent fill-in and on-call positions. I have traveled with families all over the world, everywhere from Maui to Vancouver, San Francisco to Necker Island, and many places in between.

I am professional, discreet, organized and responsible. I quickly adapt to new environments and seamlessly incorporate individual parenting styles for consistency despite transition. I aim to balance engaging educational activities with structured playtime, caring for each child in a fun, nurturing and loving manner.

In addition to work and travel, I enjoy volunteering for organizations such as Generosity Water and Pencils of Promise, which help fund clean water wells and schools, respectively, in developing nations. In my free time I love hiking, swimming, dancing, yoga, writing, reading, theater, concerts, movies, spending time with my friends and family, and exploring everything New York City has to offer.

I have professional childcare experience with…

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

I will be SmartSitting while…
