Meg’s Bio

Hello! My name is Meg, and I am a 28-year-old graduate of Trinity College in Hartford, CT. I grew up in San Francisco, CA and moved to NYC right after graduating to pursue my acting career. At Trinity, I majored in Educational Studies with a self-designed concentration in Child Development and the Arts in Education, and a minor in Performing Arts. I studied abroad at the National Theatre Institute at the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center and in Cape Town, South Africa during my junior year at Trinity. I have been working with children since I was in middle school, as a mother's helper, babysitter, camp counselor, classroom assistant, daycare teacher, director/teaching artist, and tutor. I recently founded a Shakespeare company in Kennebunk, Maine, and serve as the company's Education Director, in charge of the camp programs for children ages 5-17. I have experience with all ages including extensive infant care experience, and have worked with children from newborns to pre-teens, including in NYC for the past several years through a sitting agency. I have always especially loved working with children in the arts, and find myself frequently exploring the arts with children I care for, either through song, dramatic play, music or dance, and arts and crafts! I am also a big fan of field trips with children I babysit, and love to take children to any one of New York's incredible museums or parks. I am an extremely optimistic and good-natured, adaptable, responsible, independent and dedicated person and employee and would love a job in childcare that will allow me to pursue my passion in the arts as well as childcare, a job I absolutely love!

Meg has been caring for our baby girl (now 5m old) since November 2012. She has been a tremendous gift to our family! Meg is warm, caring, and kind. As a nervous new mom, I felt very at ease leaving our daughter in Meg's care. I highly recommend her! Your kids will be in great hands.
