I was born in Arizona and grew up traveling the world. My childhood was spent in Hawaii, East Africa and California.. I was mostly home schooled from 2nd grade till the 10th grade and have always had a love for reading. I grew up living a very outdoors and active lifestyle, running around with no shoes on and planting new plants in my personal garden. Having grown up with such a culturally rich environment, Anthropology and History have always been interests of mine. In addition, I have always loved to swim and spent most of my childhood in the Indian ocean snorkeling and scuba diving. I play multiple musical instruments and sang in a Jazz band for a year before I left to the military.
I joined the Air Force when I was 17 and was stationed in Italy and South Carolina where I served as an Intelligence Analyst for 6 years. By the time my enlistment was up, I had traveled to most countries in Europe and spent a ton of time coaching the middle and high school swimming teams of the school I lived by.
Although I plan to get a masters in Museum Administration, I love going on archaeology digs around the world. I recently went on a dig in Bulgaria where I was part of an excavation team at the Apollo Pontica digging into the Archaic Greek, Hellenistic and Early Byzantine periods.
As a nanny I love to work children and share with them the love I have for cultural studies and outdoor activities. Integrating my creative side into any job that I do is important to me. I believe that creativity helps children learn to solve problems and be better citizens of our world.
