Background: Being the second oldest out of fifteen grandchildren has allowed me to really grasp what it means to be a role model. My love for children began at the age of 8 when my first cousin was born – ever since then I have enjoyed teaching, guiding, and playing with kids. I volunteered as a Sunday school teacher at my church and have also worked as a nanny for children ranging in ages 6 months to 12 years old. I have transported kids to and from school, prepared a variety of meals, helped with their homework and enjoyed practicing their hobbies/activities with them. Through my experiences, I have enjoyed being able to teach kids many lessons, yet I am always amazed at how much they teach me!

Future plans: I am currently a student at Florida State University majoring in Communication Science and Disorders. I plan on receiving a minor in Family Child Sciences and Psychology. My ultimate goal is to become a speech pathologist for children.

When she's not babysitting: I love to be outdoors! I commonly find myself going on a run or taking my homework outside just to get some fresh air. I also love to be on the boat or at the beach with my family and friends. I enjoy reading, watching Netflix, and exploring Pinterest. However, my favorite thing to do by far is travel – and I hope to do more of that someday!
