Birthday: August 13th

Favorite Crayola Color: Wild Watermelon

Hometown: Orlando, FL

Background: I am a current student at Tallahassee Community College where I will be going into the Dental Hygiene program. I started babysitting when I was about 9 years old, when my little brother was born, and cared for him every day after school and during the summers. Since then I have cared for all ages, ranging from newborn to age 12, but most frequently kindergarten age children. I volunteered as a cheerleading coach for young girls, and in my church in Orlando almost every Sunday in the kids department. Through these experiences I worked with many handicapped children, and those with various special needs.

Future plans: In my future I hope to be a Pediatric Dental Hygienist, where I will strive to make children’s dentist experience’s fun and comfortable. I am not sure of where I want to live after school, but I will definitely stay in Florida since I love the warm weather year round!

When she’s not babysitting: When I’m not babysitting, I am either hanging out by the pool with some friends or watching Netflix with my dog. I love being outside and making new friends, but also just being around people in general makes me happy.
