Background: I am currently an undergrad at Florida State University majoring in Psychology with a focus on children. I’ve been working with kids since I was 11 when I started babysitting. I love working with children and have babysat the neighborhood kids, volunteered at a nursery, and worked two summers at 4-H Camp Cherry Lake. I have worked with children from newborn to 18 years old. My favorite thing about working with children is getting to help them learn through play and fun crafts or activities.
I have worked with children who have special needs including ADD/ADHD, autism, food and animal allergies, and muscular dystrophy.
Future plans: I plan to get a Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis and become an ABA Therapist. Ideally, I would like to work with autistic youth to better their quality of life based on their behaviors.
When she's not babysitting: I love to read, I will read almost anything! I also enjoy just being outside; reading, playing a game of volleyball, or even just going for a walk. I spend the rest of my time with my friends just laughing and making new memories.
