She taught at Inch by Inch in Bedford, at Melrose Day Care Center, and Kinder Care in Woburn. Great with kids, she also helped care for her younger cousins for several years.
Naomi had many passions that brought her great joy in life. She loved singing, especially to her younger cousins and children of her friends, and was known as a Karaoke lover. She was the family's standup comic, and was the "film director" for home movies. An athletic person, she had a love of skiing, softball, tennis, rollerblading, and figure skating. She was interested in fashion, and loved to shop with her mom. She loved family camping trips, summer vacations to Cape Cod, and watching all types of movies.
