I am originally from San Jose California and just recently relocated to Manhattan New York in the summer of 2015. I am in pursuit of being an stage actress, currently finishing my degree of Musical Theatre at Marymount Manhattan. This journey has been an exhilarating and an enlightening process thus far. I believe it’s important to live inspired, by family and friends that surround me, by the community and environment that I live in, and by the graces that God puts around me every day. In my life I am persistently striving to be better; as a person, artist, creator, originator, performer, and a grounded young woman. I strive to awaken and stir ideas, propose new views, and place inspiration in the hearts and heads of those around me. I want to make an impact. Further, with my generation and future generations, I want to inspire the action of positivity Read more and kindness toward other individuals and innovators. I like to craft my style to what the specific needs and passions are of the children. I am passionate to help them succeed in their current environments and have a safe and fun experience whenever we are together. I have provided childcare for over a dozen families, for lengthy periods of time. Along with childcare, I am heavily involved with Rotary’s youth leadership awards program in CA. Through this program we as a staff work to help youth find ways to improve and inspire their current communities. I also have extensive work with elementary level children. My elementary school in CA I up until my move was a consistent volunteer and teacher’s helper with the students. Lastly, I like to describe myself as a DREAM DOER: I am a passionate young woman who has large visions for my future, combined with a fearlessness to pursue and achieve them. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have – I look forward to hearing from you!
