About me

Since I began babysitting a little over ten years ago, I’ve had a wide range of experiences with many wonderful families! From helping new walkers, to taking middle schoolers to football practice, I’m prepared for nearly anything; I once had to perform a fish funeral, and have babysat kids whose favorite snack was frozen peas!

My background as a gymnast and coach taught me to facilitate active and safe play, as well as helped hone my skills of catching falling children! My education in fine arts and painting help me improvise when necessary, and lends itself well to any craft project.


I have professional child care experience with...

  • Infants
  • Toddlers
  • Preschoolers
  • School-aged (K-5)
  • Preteen
  • Teenagers
  • Twins
  • Multiples
  • Special Needs

I will be SmartSitting while...

I’m very passionate about learning in all capacities, and am committed to sharing that with children I work with. When I’m not painting in the studio, I love to read, watch documentaries, as well as visit galleries, museums, aquariums, and zoos in my spare time. I always encourage curiosity and adventure, which has brought me from a small town in central Florida to New York to pursue my Masters degree in painting–a dream come true in every sense!

In 5 years, I hope to be...

Working at a museum in the education department (hopefully with children), with my work represented by a NY gallery.

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

Painting, drawing, doing gymnastics, dancing, learning Spanish and Sign Language, reading, and making breakfast for dinner!
