Stephanie has always had a love for children. She began her childcare journey at the age of thirteen babysitting the children of family friends. At eighteen, she began nannying and fell in love with helping children grow, learn to explore, and navigate the world around them. She found Kindermusik and Ms. Kelly through her families that she nannies. She has nannied for over five families, twelve children in total, from the ages of newborn to seven years old. Coming into the teaching world, Stephanie is so excited to begin this next chapter with the KMC family teaching Kindermusik. She is currently working on obtaining her Kindermusik license and looks forward to teaching classes by this summer! Outside of caring for children, Stephanie is obsessed with her fur-baby Bella (a 50-pound fluffy white super mutt), spending time with her family and friends, and a passion for event planning.
