I grew up in a small town in Minnesota, 30 minutes southwest of Minneapolis. My passion for dance started at the age of 3, and that passion grew to include musical theatre when I was in 3rd grade and performing in my first musical with my dad at our local community theatre. As I continued to train in dance, I began assisting and eventually teaching classes and working the summer musical theatre camps. These opportunities allowed me to work with kids from the ages of 3-18 and I truly loved every minute of it.
While working at the dance studio, I saw a posting at the dance studio I was working at, and aconnected with a family was looking for a summer nanny, so I sent them my information and ended up nannying for them family for two summers. DuringIn my senior year at the University of Minnesota, I became a Personal Care Assistant (PCA), and I looked after a 7-year-old boy. These experiences showed me how valuable it is to do more than just look after children, but rather to be their friend, their mentor and their teacher.
As a nanny and PCA, I was able to help with cooking, cleaning, laundry and the basic health needs of the children. I love to cook, but I do work best with a recipe in the kitchen (especiallyp. in regards to gluten free and other dietary needs). My hobbies include anything arts related, traveling, taking pictures, and enjoying time well spent with friends and family.
