Ms. Sofia T.

Birthday: April 21st

Hometown: Winter Springs, FL

Favorite Crayola color: Sky Blue

Background: I am an undergraduate student at Florida State pursuing two Bachelors degrees in Psychology and Criminology. I have worked with children for over five years now and have loved every second of it. I’ve always known how passionate I was about working with and helping children, but it wasn’t until this year that I decided to make it my life’s career. Over the years, I have gained experience with children of all ages, the youngest being 4 months. I have also been blessed with the opportunity of working with special needs children in different volunteering capacities since high school. Currently, I volunteer at Pediatria Healthcare. Pediatria is a daycare center for medically complex children where I get the weekly opportunity to assist classroom aides in looking after the children and facilitating different activities for them. I feel so lucky to work for Seminole Sitters and to get to meet and care for all of the amazing children in Tallahassee!

Future plans: I plan to attend graduate school and earn an M.S. degree in Child Life and become a certified Child Life Specialist.

When she’s not babysitting: I am a member of a sorority at FSU and I love being involved with that as well as other on campus activities. Traveling is a huge passion of mine. Last summer I got the chance to study abroad in London with FSU, and this summer I plan to travel to Italy and Amsterdam.

I was so happy with Sofia this morning. She was not at all fazed by my 8 month old’s stranger danger. I was home the whole time (I had a work conference call), but my daughter never cried once. I was very impressed with Sofia’s skill and professionalism. We hope we can hire her again soon!

Sofia went above and beyond today keeping me updated. She is fantastic and my daughter asked for me to go spend the day away again just so Sofia can come back. :-) My kids absolutely adored her!

She was an amazing sitter that the girls really seemed to take to. She was so kind and energetic!
