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 ten-year-olds, 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.
