About me

I have always loved kids. As an an actor, growing up meant staying connected to your childlike roots, so I always loved being around kids, because I got a chance to simultaneously appreciate the innocence and youth, whilst being able to have the ability to help them grow. What is best about children is that they love to play pretend at all ages, and what is best about acting is that it''s all about playing pretend! Because of my background and what I continue to do, I am able to use my artistry to help children expand creatively and intellectually. Each age range comes with it's own set of possibilities, and I've worked with kids from infants up to 14 years old!

All of the ages I have watched over the years have taught me about the children's need to have fun. As a child grows, it is important for them to have someone to act as a friend, who helps them along the way, but who shows the child their own strengths-- so, when the child grows up, they will have an understanding and stimulated mind of their own, along with fond fun and treasured memories that have amounted to who they are today.

I would describe myself as a fun yet hardworking young lady, who has always devoted my time to doing the things I love with great passion. Those things range from acting, to dance, to spending the day with my family, to doing deeds of kindness. I find the greatness and the potential in everything that I do. Passion fuels my days. I have a real understanding of values in life. I am very close to my family. I have been blessed with fantastic friends, and even more blessed with lifelong best friends. I believe it''s important to have a great work ethic and sense of responsibility, but I also believe it''s important to have fun. Balance is key in life! Too much of anything tips the scale. I collect lessons from my everyday and genuinely try to apply it to my next day. I believe you can learn something from everyone. For that reason, I try to be as unbiased and as open as possible to everyone I meet.
