Thanks so much for taking the time to read a bit about me. I am a native New Yorker who's worn many hats. I enjoy creatively engagement and collaboration, as a Creative Writer who gravitates more towards the uplifting energies of an environment - the people and the creativity within those environs, rather than a particular job title. I pride myself on being: kind, responsible, gentle, energetic, creative & although incredibly empathetic, also appropriately firm, as well as fun. I've been told that I am a natural caretaker.  As an empathic nurturer, I nurture and enhance emotional connection and self-expression. Thus, I am both highly responsible and grounded, and at once am also very light-hearted, which involves helping those around me enjoy themselves! I love all art, poetry, music, spiritual connection, nature, and engaging with others of all backgrounds and ages. Being both independent and introspective, as well as a Read more very spirited social "people person," I thrive on collaboration and community. As I have been blessed with being an Auntie, I fell in love with children at a later age than most, which seems to be aligned with my "late bloomer" personality. Although I am playful, and empathetic, I am also highly discerning, and lovingly make boundaries, as I value being both responsible and trustworthy. I was a live-in nanny for two of my niece's for a few years (from toddler to school-age) - while both my brother and his wife worked full-time. I also worked as a Special Education Teaching Assistant, in the Chappaqua Schools, working with Special Ed. elementary school-aged children during the summer and with Special Needs High School students during the school year.  My partner and I, now enjoy a loving bond with each of the children, for which we are eternally grateful. I also helped my partner with child are for two sweet boys in Midtown for a few years.  My partner and I, run a small Holistic Wellness Practice, which I manage, part-time; we live in the theater district. I welcome the opportunity to care for your children! Be well!
