As the oldest of three children, I've always had a nurturing nature about me. Years later much of my employment history and volunteer work continues to be with children. I have worked with children ranging from the ages of just 6 months old to 13 years old, as well as with children of varying special needs.
From changing diapers to assisting in etiquette classes, I love it all. I am an empathetic, patient and creative person with a passion for working with children and families. In May of 2016 I graduated from St. John's University with a Bachelor's in psychology and I am currently working on my Master's in mental health counseling. I am furthering my studies in the hopes of working with children and families on multiple platforms.
There are a multitude of people that I can say greatly contributed to my upbringing and growth as a person. I am a strong believer in the idea that "it takes a village". That being said, that is a driving force in my passion to work with families. I am an advocate for fostering children's creativity and learning from our surroundings and experiences. However, when it comes to buckling down and taking care of schoolwork and responsibilities, I hold that in high regard, too.
In May of 2016, I graduated from St. John's University with a B.A. in Psychology. I am currently working on my M.Ed. in Clinical Mental Health Counseling with the intention of working with women and children in clinical settings within New York as well as neighboring states. While completing this coursework, I also began babysitting a family in New York, and I absolutely love it. Working in such close proximity to children is extremely rewarding, and helps me to truly gain the skills for my future as a clinical psychologist!
