About me

I am originally from a small town in Pennsylvania called Lock Haven, and moved to NYC to pursue a career in musical theatre after I graduated from Shenandoah Conservatory with a BFA in Musical Theatre. I am a creative, outgoing, silly person who truly loves kids and their curious minds. As a kid myself, I had a vivid imagination and now as an adult, I look for any chance to play make believe again and I have to say, as an actor, I think it makes me pretty good at it. I love having real, meaningful conversations with children. I think they have a pretty amazing outlook on the world around them and it always offers me a lot of perspective.

I have wide range of babysitting and nanny experience with ages 3-13, as well as teaching experience. I was fortunate enough after my college graduation to live in Lock Haven for a few months and teach some local young artists beginning voice, piano, music theory, and acting. It was such an amazing experience that I will always cherish. I loved tapping into their creative minds and just having fun. Being an actor and musician gives me an immense amount of tools to use to entertain young minds. I love making what might seem like a difficult or tricky situation a fun game or a teachable moment. Overall, I am a kind, compassionate and patient person who loves all kinds of music, theatre, any kind of trivia game, and just embracing the curiosity of life.

I will be SmartSitting while...

When I'm not babysitting, I'm usually exploring the city of New York, auditioning, reading, spending quality time with my boyfriend and friends, FaceTiming with my niece, checking up on the latest in the theatre world, and I'm pretty much always singing or humming some tune. Since I grew up surrounded by nature and a beautiful river, any chance I get to be outside, I take!

In 5 years, I hope to be...

Working in the theatre arts in any capacity. Right now, I am pursuing a career as a actor, but I also know I have a lot of other great talents that could be utilized in the theatre world. For example, I really can see myself teaching theatre to young adults or maybe even at a college program. I just know I want to be doing something with passion and maybe not in 5 years, but down the road, definitely have a family of my own.

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

I love sharing my passion for theatre, music, and dance. Whether that might be having a Disney sing-a-long or making up a fun dance routine, I am always down for creative time. One of my favorite things to do is read to children. I love doing voices and bringing the story to life. It is also so amazing when kids can read to me! Getting to practice their reading skills is so important and I look for any chance to nurture that skill. I also believe that patience is a skill. I think it is so important to show children how valuable patience can be when dealing with a crowded subway platform, maybe a sibling, or even just having patience with me. It is something that I truly value in today's busy, fast-paced society.
