About me

I moved to New York City several years ago and have been so happy to work with children while I pursue my artistic career goals. I have over 14 years of babysitting experience, and I have nannied in the city for toddlers and elementary-age children. I’ve found such joy in bringing high quality care and love into the lives of the children and families I’ve worked with. I especially enjoy incorporating music and art into our day-to-day routines and exposing children to classical music. I love to draw, sculpt, and paint with children and I can make a fresh batch of perfect Play-Doh or flubber in less than half an hour! I have experience in tutoring, as well as in the classroom, teaching art and music. I am comfortable with personal assistance and household tasks, and am a competent cook.

I am currently pursing a career in comedy, with the hopes of being an actor and writer on film and television. I'm a veteran of the NYC improv scene and can be seen performing several nights a week. I also love to make music – I sing and play the guitar, ukulele, and piano. I enjoy spending as much time as possible in the park, doing yoga, attending live theater and music, and continuing to explore and discover new things in this amazing city.
