Hello! I am a recent Merrimack College graduate with a degree in psychology. I am 22 years old and I adore animals. In addition to baby sitting in high school another skill I have is waitressing. I enjoy both cooking, serving, and chatting with customers! At Merrimack I was blessed to be apart of the DII Women's Lacrosse team. We ran clinics for local girls as well as volunteered at schools all over New England, to teach lacrosse and or help with homework. In addition to that, I taught a first year experience class at Merrimack which consisted of 18 freshman college students. I am also an older sister and grew up babysitting my brother while I was a freshman and sophomore in high school.

I hope to hear from you!

I have worked with children for over 13years in a school to childcare setting, and home to camp setting. The most challenging of jobs was when I was working with special ed students. My emotions got the best of me and I became burned out quickly. The most fun I had with kids was when I was coaching and another coach and I started a non-profit camp. It was a week of laughter, sweat, andbonding. My experience is vast with children because it is something I love to do.
