Julie’s Bio

Hello!
My name is Julie. I'm 29 years old. I have always enjoyed taking care of kids, reading to them, being around them, and learning from them. Taking care of kids is fun for me! I do not have any children myself. I have baby-sat and nannied seriously the past 12 years. I've primarily sat for newborns, toddlers, and children up through age 12.
I grew up with 3 dogs and 2 cats. Pets are not a problem!
I do not have any lifestyle rules, such as dietary restrictions or religious followings that would affect how I care for someone's child(ren). In terms of specific sitting philosophies, I follow the parent's rules!
I love to be creative when I spend time with kids! I like to engage their minds and their bodies! (For example, I have a game I play where I ask a math problem and if they get it right, they get to take one, giant hop forward! The more kids who can play the merrier!)
I played Division 1 volleyball when I was at Brown University, where I studied International Development and graduated in 2008. I then worked as an Upper Elementary Group Supervisor for the Out-of-School-Time Program at Belmont Charter School for 2 years where I worked with 1st-8th graders, then I was a Research Assistant at Yale's Economic Growth Center, and most recently I was a Program Associate at Social Impact, an international development consulting firm in DC. Currently I am a graduate student at the University of Denver studying International Development and I intern at the Posner Center for Internaional Development.
I was CPR and First Aid certified on December 12, 2009 and am looking to renew my certifications in the near future.
I have worked for more than 50 families.
Feel free to email me with any questions!
Julie

Julie is a very outgoing, friendly person. She makes both us and our daughter feel very comfortable. She is very reliable, and great at sitting for us even if we only give her a few hours notice!
I would be happy to chat with anyone who has any further questions.

Julie is very mature, responsible, interesting and easy to talk to! Our boys enjoyed having her sit and she jumped right in. She was totally comfortable making dinner too!

Julie has watched our 4 1/2 month old son on a number of occasions. We have absolutely been delighted with her! Julie is smart, energetic and interacts great with our son. She has even sent me some text message updates while we are out which helps ease my new motherly mind:)

we've been debating whether or not to tell everyone we know how fantastic julie is, because, if we do, everyone will hire her and she'll be too busy for us!
julie is awesome. our 14 month old little boy has such a wonderful time with her - and she is so attentive and sweet with him.
we are new to the area, so we had no point of reference for finding a sitter and were really worried about hiring someone without a personal connection to us. julie has put to rest any anxiety i had about leaving him! i am completely confident that, when he's in her care, he's safe, happy, and completely engaged in something fun and exciting:)

Julie is an amazing sitter. She was the first non-family member we ever left alone with our son, Lucas, who was 3 mos at the time and is now 5.5 months old. Julie easily got him through his bedtime routine to sleep and sent us text messages to let us know he was asleep so I could relax and we could enjoy our evening. We even got home to discover that she had washed all of our dishes!

She always sends little updates to keep our minds at ease and is great with Lucas whether he is happy or fussy, finding ways to play actively or soothingly with him depending on his mood. He always smiles when he sees Julie and is always clean, fed, warm and happy when we get home. Julie is great in a pinch as well and helped us tremendously when the snow caused our day care to be closed on a day when we really needed child care. She popped over last minute to cover for a few hours so my husband could work from home.

I would recommend Julie to anyone with kids and only hope she doesn't get too popular so she'll still have time for us!

Julie is just terrific! Our 4 year old son and almost 3 year old daughter always ask "when is Julie coming?". Julie is attentive, caring and responsible, and the kids have so much fun with her. I feel totally at ease with her child care and would highly recommend her. Mimi

Julie has been excellent with our 11 month old Isabella. I'm a 1st time mom who was nervous about leaving my daughter with someone, but Julie has made it feel so easy. She's energetic, loving, responsible and a pleasure to be around. If you're considering Julie, I would not hesitate!!

Julie has been caring for our 4-year-old son since the beginning of 2010. She is excellent: energetic, patient, and tuned-in with the individual needs of our son. She's also a great communicator, both in terms of scheduling and filling me in on our son's day when I have been out of the house. I highly recommend her! - Jen T.

We have been so happy with Julie! She's incredibly responsible and energetic and seemed to have an instant connection with our daughter! I'm also a first-time parent, and thought it would be difficult to leave our 15 month-old-daughter with a babysitter, but after meeting Julie and spending some time with her, I have absolutely no worries. We couldn't ask for a better caregiver.

Julie is fantastic! I very highly recommend her. She is probably the most highly-qualified babysitter we've ever used. She is naturally good with children. She has sat for our 5 year old son and 16 month old daughter. She also spent a night at the shore with us to watch the kids while we were out and she took care of both of them in the middle of the night unexpectedly when my daughter woke up and our monitor had turned off. She more than exceeded our expectations!

We found Julie to be a vibrant and personable babysitter for our 5 month old baby. She was flexible, reliable and very competent. We trusted Julie to take our daughter to and from daycare and to put her down for naps and bedtime. She kept in close touch with us by text and phone (more for my comfort than for hers) and kept notes on feedings (how much, when) and naps. Best of all, I could tell that she really enjoyed babysitting and spending time with the baby. I never worried when she was over.

Thank you Julie!!

My wife and I were visiting Washington D.C., and we found Julie to watch our infant daughter. She responded very quickly and positively to babysitting for us at the hotel. She even sent us texts with updates and fun messages to make us comfortable. She is very polite, professional, and responsible, and I would hire her again. - Scott S.

Julie was just awesome. She was really nice and personable and I felt really comfortable, immediately, leaving my son with her. She was willing to come with a few days notice to help out, after work, and stayed late. She sent me texts to check in and make sure if something was OK for my son to have. I absolutely recommend Julie for babysitting.

Julie has been a fantastic resource for us, she's dependable and my two kids adore her. She has no problem putting the kids to bed and even sends me text messages with little updates, which definitely put me at ease. Highly recommend!

Julie is an excellent babysitter! She is extremely friendly and outgoing and she is very focused on ensuring both the safety and the comfort of the children. We have two young girls who are often nervous when we leave the house, and both of them took to Julie's personality right away. She is always timely when getting back to us about whether or not she is available, and we always feel at ease with her being at home in our absence. We will definitely continue to use Julie as a babysitter as long as she will let us! :-)

Julie has been great to work with. She bas babysat our almost 2-year-old son a few times now and he loves her. It's clear that Julie is very comfortable around children, and our son was comfortable with her from the start. She is reliable and relaxed and has become out go-to sitter.

Julie has babysat for our 18 month old several times now. She is warm, responsible and on time. We look forward to working with her in the future!

Julie is **fantastic!** I simply cannot say enough good things about her, and I would give her ten stars if I could. She has been babysitting for our son periodically for the past several months, since he was about 4 months old. She is WONDERUL with him -- so sweet and energetic and kind and genuine. Julie has a natural way with babies. And she is great with us parents, too! She is extremely responsive, confident, intuitive about our preferences, and sends text message updates to reassure us and let us know how things are going. I feel extremely comfortable with Julie and confident when my son is in her very capable hands. --Ali

Julie is amazing. We found her to be sweet, reliable and enthusiastic. The 4 kids (6mo, 2, 3 & 5 yrs) loved Julie and so did we. In fact, the first night we used her went so well, we asked her to come back the next night! We hope to use her again soon.

Julie did such a great job for us and our two year old twins over the July 4th weekend. We were in town for a wedding and found her through Sittercity. She was super friendly and our kids loved her from the get-go. Julie played with our son and daughter, fed them both dinner, bathed them, read to them, and put them to bed while we were out for the evening. She texted a picture of the kids and gave us an update during our night out. When we returned she told us how everything went (very well, our kids slept through the night and woke up happy) and was on her way. Professional, friendly, communicative, trustworthy, and highly recommended.

Julie is fantastic!!! She watched our 3 year old and 15 month old 3 different times over the course of one weekend while we were in town for a wedding and on the last day she watched our children for 11 hours. She was on time, very friendly, mature and our kids loved her! I was very skeptical about hiring someone from online but had no need to be concerned with Julie. She put us at ease right away and was so great with our kids. She sent periodic text messages to let us know what our kids were up to. She took them out for a sightseeing walk throughout the city (with our permission of course). Our son is still asking about her because he had so much fun with her. We are looking forward to visiting DC again and having her care for our children in the future. Thank you Julie!!
