Hello! My name is Emily, and I am a local Virginian-turned-Washingtonian. I work in museum education at the Smithsonian, where I have been employed for the past 8 years. Prior to that, I was at the University of Virginia, where I earned my BA in 2010. I have always enjoyed babysitting, even when working full-time as well. I have several families in the DC area that I have known and worked with for years, and I love the relationships that I've been able to build with their kids as well as the parents (references available upon request). I'm a huge fan of engaging with the kids that I'm spending time with - so whether your kids enjoy running around outside, working on art projects, or reading together, I'm ready to jump in and have fun with them. My mindset is that I'm working for your kids as well - when they are safe Read more and having a great time, then I am doing my job! In my free time I like to cook, run, spend time with family and friends, and volunteer (I've been helping with Girls on the Run for the past four years, and just started to get involved at the Old Soldiers Home in DC). Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions!
