Ms. Katelyn

Birthday: August 3rd

Hometown: Orlando, FL

Favorite Crayola color: Cerulean Frost

Background: I am currently a student at Florida State majoring in Psychology and minoring in Child Development. I have been caring for kids since I was 13. Once in high school, I trained with Swim America to become Swim Coach certified and began working at an aquatics program, where I coached for 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. For ten months I volunteered my time as a preschool teacher at a non-profit preschool and was able to earn six DCF certifications. I also volunteered 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! 

She’s has cared for children as young as: 3 months old

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!
