About me

Growing up in a small town in Florida, as the eldest of two and the child of a single mother, I was often eager to babysit my younger brother, family members, and family friends' children without an ounce of hesitation. So when my mother, who had a second job as a Sunday Pre-School teacher, allowed me to assist with her lessons, my passion for childcare blossomed. Since then, I have had the pleasure of exploring my passion for being a caregiver.

I have extensive experience caring for special needs children with physical and developmental disabilities, children with learning disabilities, and multiples. I feel comfortable and confident caring for children of all ages, from infancy to young adults. I am unquestionably accomplished in all matters of child care, including but not limited to: changing diapers, pre-doctors visit pep talks, lending a listening ear and teaching valuable life lessons such as respect, the importance of giving back to your community, how deep breathing and meditation can bring you a clear mind, why communication is key and why any childs' feelings are valid.

I am passionate about nurturing young minds and helping children recognize their potential. I believe that no dream is too big for any child to achieve, that every day is a wonderful day for an adventure, and lessons can be learned through every experience. I enjoy creating the most magical, loving, and safe environment possible for children to grow, learn and explore daily. I strive to be a positive role model to each child I work with and someone whom children enjoy confiding in because it comes naturally. I seek to be not just a caregiver but a genuine friend to the children in my care.

I pride myself on being a positive, energetic, fun-loving, communicative, compassionate, detail-oriented, and organized team player who loves to utilize my multi-tasking skills in any way that I can. I am an out-of-the-box thinker who takes pleasure in finding a solution to every equation. I am presently pursuing a Bachelor's Degree in Nutrition. Additionally, I hold a New York State Certified Nursing Assistant License, a BLS/Advanced CPR certification, and a First Aid certification.

I will be SmartSitting while...

Creating new and delicious recipes the whole family can enjoy, working on perfecting my secret chocolate chip cookie recipe, exploring the pages of a good book, working on coding projects such as bot building for live streamers, throwing pots on my pottery wheel in my mini art studio, making watercolor paper from raw materials, perfecting my gouache technique, taking music lessons, exploring New York City on my bike, practicing my yoga and meditation techniques, tending my herb garden, volunteering with various non-profit organizations and of course working on my college course work.

In 5 years, I hope to be...

A homeowner working towards becoming a Dietitian and still being a part of an amazing family team, whom I would consider an extension of my own family.

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

I genuinely enjoy sharing my love of cooking and baking with children. I believe the strongest bonds are made in the kitchen while creating food filled with love. I also enjoy helping children bring life to the magical worlds within their imaginations. Whether through writing, painting/coloring, music, dancing, or imaginative play. Additionally, I love teaching children how to center themselves and effectively communicate their emotions. How to take a few deep breaths, assess how they’re feeling (overstimulated, upset, frustrated, etc.), and validate their feelings in the process. Above all, an essential skill that I enjoy teaching children is how to instill confidence in themselves - to always be true to their hearts while giving them gentle guidance until they feel confident in all of their decisions.
