Background: I am a junior that just transferred to USF St Petersburg studying Elementary Education. I graduated with my associates degree from Florida Southwestern State college. I have been babysitting and taking care of children since age 13. I have experience with newborns all the way through school age children. I have been a teacher at two daycares and also completed a two year childcare program in high school where I earned certifications in all ages of children along with CPR and AED certifications. My passion for children has only grown throughout the years and it has always been my dream to be a teacher. I have volunteered at elementary schools and nurseries at church as well. 

Future Plans: To pursue my bachelors degree in Elementary Education here at USFSP and fulfill my dream of being a first or second grade teacher. I also plan to continue my education and pursue my masters degree and doctorate degree. I can't wait to make a difference in my students lives and help them be successful in their education. I hope that one day I can also start a small photography business on the side. 

When she's not babysitting: I love being at the beach! I love spending time with family and friends and just relaxing. When I'm not doing those things I'm usually studying and doing schoolwork.  Netflix is also one of my favorite things!
