Background: I am currently a student at Florida State University majoring in Family
and Child Sciences. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old (being the eldest in a very
large family) so growing up I have always loved caring for children. I have cared for children
ranging from newborns to 10-year old’s, I also having formal experience working in my local
church back home and in a hospital. I am CPR and First Aid certified and currently working on
DCF and Medical Assistant certifications. I enjoy positive communication between parents to
ensure that their child/children have the best experience when in my care.

Future plans: After graduating, I plan on pursing a master’s degree in Child Life and obtaining
my Child Life Specialist Certification.

When she's not babysitting:In my spare time I volunteer at the TMH Childcare Center, other
times I’m in class or I’m at my second job. I also enjoy reading and baking.
