Background: I’ve always loved kids - even when I was one myself! I’ve been babysitting for more than 8 years. It began as soon as I turned 13 and was old enough to work in the church nursery. I cared for newborns and infants on Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. In the summers that followed, I became involved with my church’s vacation bible school. I can remember spending hours planning activities and crafts for children of all ages. I’ve always been crafty, but this became the perfect outlet to put my skills to use. Through the church, I also had the opportunity to volunteer with Nathaniel's Hope - an organization dedicated to serving children with special needs and disabilities. In high school, my love for children extended outside the church when families from all walks of life entrusted me with their kiddos as both a babysitter and a tutor. I am dedicated to helping children learn and grow in fun and safe environments.

Future plans: I am finishing up my senior year as an English major. I’ll be graduating in December, but I plan to stick around Tallahassee for a while to work and focus on building up my photography business. I don’t know what the future might hold, but I know that I have a passion for people. With that, I can do just about anything!
When she’s not babysitting: If I’m not babysitting, I’m probably in my car, on an adventure. I love to travel, experience new things, and journal about it!
