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.
