About me

I moved from Atlanta to New York City in order to pursue a career in musical theatre! I have enjoyed every moment of my New York adventure! Since graduating college, working with children has proven to be a joy and passion! While living in Atlanta, I began teaching children of all ages how to sing and play the piano. l especially loved this experience because children thrive in creative environments! It was a blast to collaborate with them and allow their ideas to flow freely. I also spent my time nannying for children of all ages. I worked with infants, toddlers, and elementary to middle school aged children. I found that I especially love toddlers, but I happily work with children of all ages!

Over time I have learned that no matter the age of the child, patience is always the key to success. I have always loved children and working in childcare has provided wonderful supplemental income to support my acting career. Even when it comes to performing, I still find myself working with children. While living in Atlanta, I performed at the Georgia Aquarium and Stone Mountain Park in which both required interacting with children! It was very rewarding to spread joy through my art to children. I have a very outgoing and bubbly personality! I believe that my greatest strength is my adaptability and ability to "go with the flow". I am not easily thrown off by the "oops" moments and always make the best of any situation. I have found that this ability often comes in handy when working with children. It is a personal joy to make a positive impact on children and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity.

I will be SmartSitting while...

I am usually attending an audition or preparing for an audition. I enjoy spending time with my loved ones while exploring the city or trying new restaurants! On Sundays, I enjoy attending church and spending time catching up with my friends afterwards. Currently, I am working on my cooking skills and trying to find new recipes to mark as my "go to" meals. Suggestions are welcome!

In 5 years, I hope to be...

I hope to have established a professional acting career in New York City while starting a family of my own. I also hope to be well-traveled and to have an apartment to call my own.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

I enjoy singing to children and singing with them! There are some children who aren't so fond of singing and that's okay :) I enjoy creating new games with children as well. In my experience, they especially love this because they get to flex their creative skills and even more so when naming the game. It is also quite exciting for them when they get to share their new game with friends.
