Meet Kristy

  • Comfortable with pets

I've been around children younger than me since I was just about eight years old when my parents added more siblings to our family and have loved kids ever since! Leaving your children behind as you head off to work is hard. Doing it with a somewhat total stranger? Even harder! I want to erase "stranger" and replace it with "friend" as we get to know each other! You want someone who you trust to leave your most valuable possessions (your kids!) with and I want to become "part of the family" with any of my clients: these go hand-in-hand! The TV is never the babysitter as I believe in being active with the little ones. Arts & crafts, outside time, dress up, cooking/baking... you name it, I love it. I love working with all ages and personality types too! I have over a decade of paid experience through clientele I Read more built, and an additional five+ years caring for children of friends, family and even teachers I had. I've cared for infants as young as three weeks old up to young teenagers. I've participated in "Mommy & Me" storytimes, gymnastics, swim lessons, cheer practice... etc. When I lived in the greater Seattle area, I was registered for a time as a respite care provider for the E.F.M.P. program (for Military service members) so I'm no stranger to families with special needs children. I look forward to getting to know you!

We had Kristy nanny for our daughters who were very little, 4 months and 2 1/2. She has a great personality and we felt so comfortable leaving our kiddos with her. She loved them and treated them with respect and kindness. I never worried when I left my girls with her. She watched our kids for 2 years and we miss her (we've since moved from WA)! You won't regret using Kristy.

Kristy has been fantastic with our daughter Isabelle. She's knowledgable, active, and motivated. Not once does my child watch television and yet she's never fussy or bored. She's engaged and learning all day long and reaches out to Kristy even if I'm in the room. Kristy is puncutal, dependable, and flexible. I'd highly recommend her to anyone if I wasn't so busy hoarding her!

We arranged for Kristy to watch our 17 month old son for a few hours so we could go out. I was a bit nervous, as this was his first REAL babysitter. She impressed me from the moment I met her. She came very prepared with questions and was simply a joy. Jacob was completely fine with us leaving and took to her right away. They played on the floor and she had no problems putting him to bed (that was the real test). I would recommend Kristy to anyone, and hope she will continue to sit for us. Thanks Kristy!!! Jen

Kristy did an excellent job watching our daughter. I was able to have a wonderful date night with my husband because I had complete confidence that my little one was being cared for by Kristy. I truly feel like she cared about my child. She was totally professional, on-time and just a really nice person. She has my highest recommendation. Can't wait to work with her again!!

Kristy is completely reliable and trustworthy. She started caring for my daughter when she was only 5 months old and I never worried about her. I got laid off so I am home with my daughter again, but I think it hurt more to have to lose Kristy than it did to lose my job. I would recommend her to anyone, any parent is lucky to have her!
