Background: I am a recent college graduate from the University of Florida and now getting my masters at Florida State. During my time at the University of Florida, I have worked with a vast variety of children from working as a Micanopy Tutor, having an internship through the Yellow Ribbon youth extension service, volunteering, and working as a nanny. In addition, before my college experience I was in the Early Childhood Magnet program at my high school. In the academy, there were many requirements to become a certified preschool teacher. One requirement was to complete 480 hours or more of experience working with children aged five years and younger. Working with such a young age group taught me a great deal on how to be patient and more tolerant when working with other individuals. Another requirement was creating lesson plans, which taught me how to plan effectively and create projects and materials that engage children in their four areas of development, while also having an educational base. As you can see I really enjoy working with children of all age groups, while creating fun and engaging activities. Having my own nieces and nephews I try to stay up to date with things that children like to have more relatable discussions and commonalities. I have experience with working with children as young as eight weeks old, multiple children with different ages, children with mild delays, administrating daily supplements required by parent, handle breast milk and formula, and lastly, I am bilingual being able to speak Creole.

She cared for children as young as: 8 weeks

Future Plans: Upon receiving my masters in mental health counseling, I want to work for the VA Hospital or join the military.

When she’s not babysitting: I enjoy reading, love watching crime investigation shows, lastly finding new travel adventures to complete.

Defining quote: Romans 8:18 “The pain that you’ve been feeling, can’t compare to joy that is coming.”
