I have an array of babysitting and teaching experience, and I have worked with children of all ages. I enjoy working with children because of their high energy and imaginations. I enjoy creating games and entertainment with children that foster healthy development, as well as providing a safe environment for activities. I like be a positive role model for children, and building a strong and caring relationship with them.
I value a healthy lifestyle, which includes being active on a daily basis through yoga, jogging, swimming, etc., as well as eating nutritious foods. I also love traveling both domestically and internationally. Last summer I had the amazing opportunity to volunteer at an orphanage in Peru with children ages 0-10. Additionally, during my undergraduate degree I studied abroad in Germany for one year.
