Hello! Thanks for checking out my profile. As someone who spends all day learning and growing alongside children and adolescents, I'd love to find a great family to support on my evening/weekends. Currently, I am in the process of completing an Ed.M. in school psychology at Teachers College, Columbia University. Prior to this degree, I worked as a family counselor and K-5 science/teaching associate at schools here in Manhattan as well as in sunny Menlo Park, CA. I also have prior experience as a nanny for two great families in Boston and San Francisco with children ranging from K-6th grade. Oh and, I can hold my own in Spot It and special character voices for books at bedtime :-). Looking forward to meeting your family!

Tara was a wonderful sitter for us. She was thoughtful, kind, and caring, and we felt totally comfortable leaving our 5 month old with her for a wedding. Thank you so much Tara!
