Background: I am currently a student at Florida State majoring in Psychology and minoring in Child Development. I have been caring for kids ever since the age of 13 after I received my First Aid and CPR certification from Red Cross. Once in high school, I trained with Swim America to become Swim Coach certified and begun working at an aquatics program for about two and a half years. While there, I worked as a group and one-on-one swim instructor as well as a camp supervisor and swim coach. I have also volunteered my time as a Preschool Teacher at a non-profit preschool for ten months and was able to earned six DCF certifications. Lastly, Ivolunteered as a special education assistant art instructor for a local school and YMCA. I absolutely love working with kids and my experiences have prepared me to work with kids of all ages! 

Future Plans: My goal is to attend graduate school for an Occupational Therapy program. Upon graduation, I plan to complete my fellowship, gain additional experience and eventually open my own firm specializing in Pediatric Occupational Therapy. 

When she’s not babysitting: I enjoy being outside, whether taking hiking trips, beach trips or studying in a shady spot on campus! Otherwise, I am probably hanging with friends or watching movies!
