Birthday: February 12

Hometown: Tallahassee, FL

Favorite Crayola color: Purple Pizzazz

Background: I am a student at Florida State University majoring in Nursing. I have been babysitting since I was 13 years old for family members and family friends. I received my Early Childhood Credentials in high school. I have worked in a daycare setting for three years. I’ve enjoyed working with children of all ages from infants (6 weeks) to young adults (up to 14 years of age). I love being to be creative when working with children; it keeps them engaged and entertained. I have had experience working with children who are breastfed, that have food allergies, and behavioral issues. My role as a babysitter is more than just looking after children; I am interested in making a positive impact on a children’s life’s and encouraging them to be the best version of themselves.

She's cared for children as young as: 6 weeks old

Future plans: I plan on becoming a Neonatal Nurse Practitioner.

When she's not babysitting: I am always working on homework or learning something new. I really enjoy going on nature walks and listening to music.
