Hey y'all! I was born and raised in Merced, CA. It is a beautiful and highly agricultural town, full of cows, pigs, and open land. With all of opportunities I had to raise animals or play softball (Which I did for two days, only so I could receive the pink chair you got for signing up!), I chose to sing and dance!
I was a very ambitious child, and at 13 I decided I wanted to go to Cal State Fullerton and get my BFA in Musical Theatre. What a blessing it was when that happened! Soon after graduation, I moved to NYC to pursue what I have continued to love my entire life!
During college, I was able to both nanny and teach children's theatre camp. I nannied a sweet little boy from the time he was 10 weeks old, until he was around 2. I played with him at home and at the park, went on walks, fed, changed, and put him down for naps! Since moving to the city I have been able to watch a spunky 11 year old girl. I take her to and from school, play with her, get her to after school activities, make dinner, and occasionally schedule play dates!
I taught summer theatre camps to children last summer, and it was blast! Group of children ages 3 to 12 would come in for a week at a time and create short plays. Watching them be able to create something as a team and of their own was incredibly rewarding and I find it hard to find something as special to see.
Since having worked with so many different kids, I have learned that my style with kids is very fun loving and creative! I love getting their creative juices flowing, introducing them to the arts, and playing games that involve creating and imagining while being very active! I like to create an environment of acceptance and love, allowing them to explore and grow in their own way and time.
