At the age of 12 I began babysitting and working at my church nursery where I continued to take care of the babies and toddlers and supervise the playground of 30+ children of all ages until I moved away for college at 19. I have a younger sister (12 years younger) and a niece and nephew (14 and 16 years younger) all of whom I adore and helped to raise. Starting at 13 I was nanny to a little boy for four years on and off depending on his mother's class schedule. I would be dropped off at their apartment after school and was responsible for cooking his dinner, and getting him bathed and to bed. Throughout high school I also had a few summer nannying jobs and volunteered 3 years as a an elementary school camp counselor with 5-7 year olds. Throughout college in Ashland OR I babysat and Read more nannied as well, and soon became a resident caretaker for a handful of the actors at the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Since graduating I worked at the Sitka Fine Arts Camp in Sitka AK and taught elementary school acting classes in addition to directed a cast of 29 5-18 year olds in a full length musical. I majored in Theater Performance and have always had a special interest in children's theater. I find most children are far more uninhibited and creative than adults which is a huge reason why I’ve always loved to surround myself with them.
