Birthday: August 11
Hometown: Winter Springs, FL
Favorite Crayola color: Turquoise Blue
Background: I have always had a soft spot for children! I love their energy and willingness to try just about anything. I began babysitting for various families when I was in high school and continued by spending the summer building a school for children in Belize. This was by far one of the most rewarding experiences for me! I also spent a few summers working as a camp counselor for kids ages 6-14 where I was able to foster an environment of creativity, physical activity, and numerous academic activities. Being a sitter provides me the opportunity to make a positive impact on a child, even if it is just for a few hours!
I have had experience with children with severe peanut allergies.
Future plans: I am a student at Florida State studying Communications and a Anthropology minor. After I graduate I want to work for a non-profit organization in their fundraising departments.
When she's not babysitting: I love the game of soccer, so anytime I can be outside and play I take full advantage of it. Also, before I go to bed every night I spend 30 minutes reading a good book (especially Harry Potter)!
