Growing up I did a lot of babysitting - we have lots of family (and extended family) with lots of little ones. During my first year of college at UW I began nannying as a source of income. It was then when I realized how much I enjoyed childcare and being a positive part of the lives of children.

When I was younger I was always that kid who chose to babysit children from other families. My mother ran a home daycare center most of my life so I was always used to being around other children and saw all the work and fun activities that go into caring and teaching children. I took many early childhood education classes in college and am currently working towards my bachelors degree.
