What's your favorite age to work with and why? Any age! I love a child's enthusiasm for new things and willingness to learn. It’s amazing to see the little things that make a child’s world so exciting!
What do you enjoy most about being a Sitterwise sitter? I love that you get to be a tourist and explore the wonderful city of San Diego. Getting to see the various communities, hotels and sites while of course spending time with kids which makes it more exciting! And most importantly you get to meet some pretty awesome families!
If you could learn to do anything, what would it be? Surfing. I’ve tried it a few times but would love to master it!
When you have 30 minutes of free-time, how do you pass the time? I love to go on adventure walks with the kids if available. “I spy with my little eyes” is a fun game for all ages and it gives everyone a chance of exploration.
What’s your favorite indoor/outdoor activity? Going to the beach or doing yoga. They both truly relax me.
What three traits define you? Creative, patient and kind

If you could go back in time, what would you tell your 13 year old self? To really enjoy yourself being a kid, live life to the fullest. It goes by really fast and you will miss it. And also don’t stress about what other people think of you. Be your own true self.
What kind of music is currently downloaded on your phone? Pop/Rock
Share your most favorite Sitterwise experience: I had a job at the Hotel Del with a family who requested me to take care of their 2 children. They kindly asked me to join them on the beach for s’mores after watching the kids which is something I’ve always wanted to do! There were treats galore which was heaven! I got to really get to know the family better too!
