I have enjoyed working with and taking care of children for the last twelve years. I began my journey babysitting for my high school principal’s son and it has truly turned into a passion, and ultimately, a career. I am one year away from graduating from medical school and plan to spend my life taking care of children as pediatric emergency medicine physician. I believe that the best sitters are those that do very little sitting! I believe in reading, running and playing. I am a lifelong learner as evidenced by my career choice and I will always do my best to incorporate learning into my work with children. I have experience with children of all ages and have no problem caring for sick children. I am comfortable taking care of an upset tummy, a cold, or even the occasional scraped knee. When I am not working or studying for exams, I enjoy running along the Hudson, taking my dog Nellie for a walk, and exploring new things to do and places to eat in this amazing city!
