Background: I am currently a student at the Florida State University studying Geology. I have a natural pull towards the nurturing of children, and I always have, even since I was a kid myself! I started watching children in my neighborhood when I was 13, and eventually grew to be a pretty well-known sitter around town. I have babysat for children from newborn to 12 years old. I worked for an indoor children’s play facility and managed large groups of children on my own. I have spent two summers nannying a newborn who is now one year old, and I continue to care for him on my school breaks and holidays. It was so magical and nothing short of amazing watching him grow and transform as I knew I had a hand in this process! As a babysitter, I go beyond the care of children, and aim to engage them while providing a safe, age-appropriate environment.
I have experiencing caring for children with special needs including ADD/ADHD and those on the autism spectrum.
Future plans: I would like to join the Peace Corps Masters International Program after earning my B.S. in Geology/Environmental Science and combine earning my Masters with serving our global community.
When she's not babysitting: I mostly study and take part in school clubs like Habitat for Humantity and the FSU Geological Society. Besides that, I like to explore different areas of Tallahassee -- I love stumbling upon an art gallery or sleepy coffee shop I've never heard of before!
Defining quotation: “No vestige of a beginning, no prospect of an end” - this quotation is from a famous Geologist, James Hutton. Though he was referencing the seemingly endless expanse of Earth’s history, I use it as a humbling reminder of the fact that there was much before us, and much to come, so we should make everything of the impact we are able to have now!
