I was born in the San Francisco Bay Area and moved to Buenos Aires, Argentina when I was two years old! I spent three years in Argentina, where my little brother was born (he has dual citizenship…I'm definitely not jealous) and then moved back to the U.S. at the age of five. I still love to speak Spanish and am currently living in Brooklyn but hoping to move back to Spanish Harlem.
When my family moved back to the U.S., I was very shy and confused by the differences in language and culture. However, my parents refused to abide my fears and immediately signed me up for a summer theatre camp! I went kicking and screaming the first day, but soon fell in love with the theatre experience and the counselors who helped me explore the world outside of my shell. That is why I babysit, as a way of working to help children grow and be encouraged to be the truest and happiest versions of themselves that they can be.
I have been babysitting since middle school and haven’t stopped since. Recently, I taught children ages 8-12 and 12-15 at a theatre camp in the Bay Area and had a very rewarding experience. Working with kids at this camp, reminded me of my younger days of being shy at my theatre camp, but through the time and patience of the caring camp counselors, I expanded out of my bubble. When you let me take care of your children, you are trusting them with someone who is an incredible listener and loves to help children grow. It is my way of giving back to those caretakers who changed my life and helped set me on the course to where I am today.
I also played every sport growing up, so feel very comfortable helping with practices and playing in nearby parks. I was an honor student throughout high school and university, and can also help with homework and tutoring. I would love to be there for your children and encourage them, just like how I was guided at such a young age. I know the importance of having a loving and positive supervision and what kind of impact it can have on a child. Thank you very much for checking out my bio and I hope to meet your family soon!
