Ashley’s Bio

My name is Ashley Mortensen and I am a graduate with honors from New York University with a BFA in musical theatre and minors in creative writing and psychology. I currently live in Sunnyside Queens with my husband and dog Dolce. I have lived in New York City for 9 years (residing in various sections from the upper west side to the east village). I live right off the 7 train and am completely willing to travel anywhere in Manhattan or the outer buroughs. I am a very outgoing, creative and energetic person who cares immensly about children and I hope to better there lives and be a good example for them.
I am an avid baker and love to cook and work in the the kitchen. (I must say I make a mean apple pie, some pretty good snickerdoodles and my famous chocolate chip cookies.) I am aslo trained in cpr and have worked both babysitting and in the professional theatre world with special needs children. 
I have worked with children of all ages, from newborns to teens, and loved every moment. I have been babysitting for over 14 years and have worked as a nanny for familes in CA and NY for over 8 years.
Musical Theatre is a HUGE part of my life, so I am always singing and I am a very hands on teacher. Much of my teaching is theough song! The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams and that is something I hope to instill in the lives of the children I meet. Singing, music and theatre is all about creativity and not being afraid to make mistakes. It makes you a better performer and a better all around person!
What I love most about watching children and why it is such a passion of mine is that I truly believe that I learn as much from them as I hope they will from me.
I have been touring the country with the National tour of WICKED the musical and one of the highlights after every performance is meeting the kids who are seeing the show for the 1st or 20th time.
