About me

A little about me! I am a Texas native (Howdy, Ya'll!), who moved to NYC. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Sam Houston State University with a BFA in Musical Theatre with an emphasis in education. I have been babysitting and teaching since high school, but have over five years of professional classroom and nannying experience under my belt. Why do I nanny? Because not only do I absolutely adore children, but I love the idea that I can positively impact a child's upbringing and become part of a family!

I have been lucky enough to work with children since my high school years when I worked as a babysitter for friends and family back in Texas, as well as working as a counselor and teacher for elementary aged children in choir classes and theatre camp. From those formative years, my passion for childcare and education has only grown and developed to where I am today.

For the last five years, I have worked in both professional childcare and classroom settings with a wide age range of children. (Infants through teenagers!). I have taught a variety of classes from group and solo music lessons, private studio dance, science and early reading curriculum, to theatre intensives! I have also nannied regularly for a variety of wonderful families in both Texas and New York.

What can you expect from me as a nanny? I am fun-loving, creative, firm but kind. I like to encourage positive thinking and independent problem solving (while lending a helping hand and a guiding voice when needed!). I love to stay moving both outdoors and indoors, as I feel like an active body and mind is key to development. I pour my heart into every family I work for, and will go the extra mile to make things smooth and happy in your home!

I will be SmartSitting while...

out and about! I enjoy staying active. Be it auditioning, running/working out, spending time with friends and family, or just enjoying some poetry in Central Park, I like to keep my body and mind active. I love to be surrounded by people I love and seeing new places. I am huge sports fan, so you will also see me at sporting events! (Football, baseball, soccer- you name it!). I do like my alone time, to which I like to practice my instruments and singing, read new plays and novels, or writing poetry!

In 5 years, I hope to be...

incorporating my love for children and for the arts into one cohesive place! I would love to be performing and teaching, possibly in a studio of my own.

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

As a creative person I love to teach music, theatre and dance to children. Let's get those voices loud and bodies moving! As a teacher, I can't help but make everyday a learning experience for kids! I challenge them to problem solve, ask questions, and to bring kindness into every situation.
