About Shea: Shea recently received a BA in Theatre Performance from Fordham College at Lincoln Center and is from the Berkshires of Western Massachusetts.

Childcare Experience:  Shea has babysat since the age of 13 and has cared for children as young as two years of age. She has taken care of up to four children at once and is delighted to help with homework and household chores. Growing up she was highly influenced by the education department at Shakespeare & Company in Lenox, MA. It was there that she began teaching as a senior in high school. As an educational artist she saw how the unbridled passion found in children allows them to be honest, open and magnanimous artists and storytellers. As a sitter she encourages imaginative exploration based in a sense of play!

Personal Interests:  Shea’s interests surround her love for the stage and for language. As a child she would often be found in her backyard acting out soliloquies or playing every role in A Midsummer Night’s Dream. These days when she isn’t in rehearsal or working on a script she can be found running through Astoria Park, working on her arm balances in yoga or riding her bike along the river. She loves folk music, avocados, Tolstoy and Earl Grey.

Personal Quote:  “I believe in creating a safe space in which children can explore, ask questions, discover and grow. I treat children with great respect and love to play and laugh with the young people that I care for!”
