Being around children and watching them learn and grow makes me immensely happy, and I can't imagine doing anything else with my life. I am a Vanderbilt graduate with degrees in Cognitive Studies and Human and Organizational Development. I have experience volunteering at a preschool in Nashville where there are many children who have various developmental or intellectual disabilities, so I am versatile when it comes to special needs children. I've worked on the childcare staff at a local church and nannied for three families full time. I've been babysitting a much younger brother since I was 6, and other children since I was 12. I was a lifeguard for 4 years so I received certifications in first aid and CPR. I love families, children, and all pets!
