Birthday: October 20

Hometown:  Tarpon Springs, FL

Favorite Crayola color: Middle Blue Green

Background: I have loved working with children for as long as I can remember. Being able to make a difference in a child's life is an indescribable feeling and something that brings me so much joy. I have babysat children from infants to 13 years old, as well as volunteering in my church's nursery. I also have worked in numerous summer camps, being a counselor at my church's summer camp as well as the Boys and Girls Club. I ran a camp for children who were impacted by tornadoes in Alabama. Throughout high school, I was in a program called Little Spongers, where I worked with children aged 3-5 every day. With my experience in Little Spongers, I became CDA certified, as well as CPR and First Aid certified. I feel that working with children is one of the most important and rewarding things a person can do.

Future plans: I'm currently enrolled at FSU, double majoring in Criminology and Business with the hopes of going to law school. I love the idea of making a difference in peoples lives and being able to help others.

When she's not babysitting: I enjoy being outside! I love to hike and relax at the beach. I love to read a good book as well as just hanging out with friends and watching movies.

Defining quotation: “Speak up for those who cannot speak for themselves."
