Christina’s Bio

I graduated in May 2012 with a masters in American Studies and currently work as a development coordinator at a non-profit in Washington DC.  I love being around children and have always been surrounded by kids due to my large family.  During college, watching kids was always been a nice way to step back from the student environment and it was always a pleasure. I have babysat for several children and was referred to other parents numerous times and I take pride in the fact that I have watched many children for several years.  Further, I was also very active in my church's youth group and volunteered as a tutor for several years.  I am more than willing to provide further references if desired.  I am passionate about babysitting and just being able to enjoy the company of younger children because I have always had great experiences with babysitters growing up.  My babysitters became mentors and I learned a lot from them and I've always had a very positive outlook on the great influence that a great mentor etc can have. The majority of my availability would be on weekday nights and weekends.  In my free time I volunteer at the DC Central Kitchen, for RAINN and Girls on the Run.

Christina has babysat for my 17 month old son a couple of times in the last few months. I also met with her before she babysat to have her meet my son. She is always very responsive, punctual, and friendly. I can tell how much she loves kids. She is very good with my son. I am going to continue to ask her to babysit and I would recommend her to others.

Christina has babysat for my three kids, 6,5, and 3 several times. She is extremely reliable and very good with my kids. My children love having her babysit and it is always a pleasure to have her over. She is my first go to person when we need a night out. Very good and very reliable. We love her.

Christina did a great job taking care of our 18 month-old son. She is very warm, caring, and genuine. Our son liked her right away, and I felt so comfortable leaving him in her care. We will definitely ask her to babysit him again.

Christina has been a fabulous sitter. My two daughters immediately took to her and barely noticed when I left. She returned my e-mails right away and arrived on time. By far the best sitter we have used through Sittercity.

Christina is great. She knows how to talk with little kids, is sympathetic to their feelings, and gets them in bed on time! (no small feat) She is a nice mix of firm and caring. She is responsive to emails and accomodates schedule changes when she can. Just don't mess with our one night a week!

Christina has been a wonderful sitter for our 20-month-old daughter, Diana. She is very comfortable getting right down on the floor and playing with her--and Diana took to her right away. Christina is very punctual, responsive to emails, and great at following-up to confirm details. We're so pleased to have found her!

Christina has been babysitting for our 20 month-old son for about 6 months now and she is wonderful with him. She is very responsible--quick to respond, punctual, and reliable. She has also been willing to care for our son at different times of day--morning, afternoon, or evening depending on our needs. Our son has taken to her very quickly and seems to have a great time with her.

Christina is excellent! She is punctual, has a wonderful personality, and my son loves her. Christina has come through for us in a pinch on several occasions and is extremely reliable. I would not hesitate to recommend Christina to anyone. She is a gem!

We met Christina for the first time last week when she came over to watch our 1-year old daughter. She was very friendly, receptive to our directions and incredibly patient in getting our daughter to bed. We're looking forward to getting to know her better during future engagements.

Christina babysat for our 4.5 month old daughter recently and was amazing. It was a last minute request, and she was extremely responsive and we were able to confirm quickly. She arrived right on time, and our daughter took to her immediately. We are definitely going to be using her whenever we can, have nothing but the best to say about her and highly recommend.

Christina was a regular babysitter for the past 3 years. Our daughter was 5 years old when Christina first started. We cannot say enough wonderful things about her: she was always punctual, highly reliable and responsive to our needs. She engaged our daughter in various play activities, read to her, tutored her on occasions, and helped with meals. Our daughter was very fond of her and always looked forward to seeing her. We recently moved, so we were very sad to part ways.

Christina has babysat several times for our now-four-month-old daughter and done a great job. She has been punctual and quite flexible around our planned outings. She is great with our little one and has sent updates on feedings, sleeping, etc. when asked. I highly recommend Christina.

I highly recommend Christina as a babysitter. Christina babysat for my two year old son while I was in D.C. for business travel. She arrived on time both days, immediately engaged my son, and was extremely flexible with her schedule. I would definitely contact Christina again the next time I am in D.C. for work!

Great experience, excellent communicator

Christina came out to our house to interview with us and has subsequently babysat our one-year-old son twice. She's great with our son - as soon as she came in the door, she started engaging with him and won him over immediately. She communicates well, she's smart, and she's friendly. We look forward to many future evenings out free of worry thanks to Christina.

Excellent with infants

Christina has babysat for my 7 month old (starting when he was 5 months old) during stretches of the day and in the evenings, and she is great! She is confident, in control, and responsible . I love having her come and I highly recommend her!

Christina is fantastic!

There is a very good reason that Christina has so many positive reviews, but I simply must add my own. What a great person! Christina worked through a complicated set of logistics to care for my 4 month old for two full days while I attended a conference. She was great with my daughter, I was completely confident that she was in good hands with Christina.
But maybe equally as important, she was easy to communicate with: responsive, creative, friendly, and kind. That made it much easier for me to travel to a different city with my daughter and feel confident that things would work out alright. Makes me wish we lived in DC and could have Christina as a sitter more often!

Christina has been babysitting our five year old son fairly regularly since Oct. 2013. She is my son's "favorite babysitter." She is always enthusiastic, on time, flexible and engaging. I highly recommend her for any family.

Really thorough, great sitter

Christina watched kids during an event I planned. She arrived early, was great with the kids (very hands-on), and cleaned up after the kids while they were doing a craft without being asked. I would definitely hire her again!

Fantastic

We have been working with Christina for a number of years now as an occasional babysitter, pet sitter and house sitter. She's reliable, fun, detail-oriented and a self-starter. Whenever we have had her babysit our son for a date night, we come home to a clean kitchen and folded laundry without even having asked. Our son is crazy about her. We have also had her stay with our son overnight when we took a weekend away. We recommend her without reservation.

- Allison M.

Christina is great!

Christina sat for us very last minute. She was terrific. Arrived right on time, connected right away with our daughter, played with her, and even cleaned up after dinner. We will definitely call her again.

Excellent babysitter

Christina is an excellent babysitter. On a visit to DC, we hired her at the very last minute to provide childcare for our two kids (5 and 3) for two mornings. She was punctual, friendly, and unflappable. She took the kids to the park, cleaned up after lunch, and took the initiative to figure out some stuff that we forgot to tell her. All around great experience.

Prompt and Flexible

Christina answered a last minute ad for a babysitting job, and from her first correspondence I was impressed. She was prompt, friendly, and my nephew absolutely loved hanging out with her and had immediately rapport. He declared that he wanted her next time!

We really appreciated Christina's flexibility, and she even took my nephew on the metro (which he loves as a seven year old) and they went to the mall for dinner. He was on cloud nine.

Wonderful!!!!

We were in town for a conference with our 16 month toddler. Christina was amazing with her. Did all kinds of fun activities ... museums, water splash areas, etc. Our daughter was happy the whole trip!

She was responsive, sent me texts and photos, super kind, & good natured.

I've already scheduled her for our next DC trip. I wish she lived in Atlanta!!!

Christina Review

We had a great first experience having Christina babysit for our two kids, ages 3.5 and 1. She was very responsive when making plans, arrived on time (even a few minutes early), and most importantly, the kids liked her right away. The night went smoothly and she kept us updated via text, which put us at ease. We will definitely ask her to babysit again!

Christina's wonderful

Christina was able to help me out with short notice last week - I was in a pinch. She arrived early :) and was so engaged with my daughter (16 mos.) that I felt very comfortable right from the start. She's very professional, punctual. Christina was good at checking in about what my baby was up to while I was away. My daughter responded so wonderfully to Christina. I will be calling on Christina in the future. She's amazing.

Great Sitter!

We found Christina on SitterCity and she sat for us twice while we were visiting DC. She did a fabulous job watching our group's 4 kids (2, 4, 7, 10). She was super friendly and seemed very comfortable with the kids. She did everything we asked her to do regarding meals, baths, bedtime, etc. She was early each time and kept in touch with us regarding when the kids went to sleep, etc. Would highly recommend her and will contact her again next time we return to DC!

Instills confidence

Christina is a great communicator, intelligent, inquisitive -- asks lots of questions and makes good observations about the child, takes initiative to follow up with the parents regarding scheduling, sends text updates throughout the night if desired. Doesn't hesitate at all to get on the child's level, interact and gently direct. I felt like she walked into our home and immediately started connecting with our child AND us. She is the first baby sitter we've had -- besides grandparents! -- and we're glad to have found her.

Christina is a wonderful and reliable sitter

Christina is a kind, reliable sitter, with a wonderful way of interacting with kids. My two-year-old loved her immediately and had a terrific time with her. Christina shows up on time, is highly responsive, and entirely reliable.

reliable, fun-loving babysitter highly recommended!

We highly recommend Christina. The first time she came to babysit, she offered to arrive early to meet the kids, learn their preferences and ours and help them adapt gently. Normally our kids (ages 2 and 4) are a little apprehensive around new babysitters, but they took to her immediately and told me the next day that they wanted her to come back soon! She was very good about getting them their dinner, bathed and into bed in a timely manner, and she sent us a text after they were in bed to give us a status update, which I really appreciated. We are moving out of the DC area, but if we weren't, Christina would be our go-to babysitter!
