Hi! You guys deserve a date night! My name is Kat, I'm 28 years old and I've been nannying on the side since I was in middle school. During the day, I'm a researcher at Evanston Hospital. I'm available for date night weekend help and the occasional week night. When babysitting, I love puzzles, playing outside, helping with homework, and playing creatively. I always make sure to keep the house tidy so you don't have to come home to a mess, and try to keep things as fun as possible for the kids while still getting everyone to bed on time.

It was the first time I left my 7 months old little girl with a sitter and Kay was absolutely fantastic. She came early to meet us, she was relaxed and she made me feel very comfortable. She texted me to let me know everything was alright during the evening so I did not have to ask or stress. I would definitely book her again!
She was great with my girls
Kat was great - immediately jumped in and bonded with my three boys. She was quick to suggest games and kept it fun. She made them dinner and even cleaned up afterwards - total bonus. We'd welcome her back, anytime!
The kids had a great time! All went well.
Great sitter! Thanks!
A delightful person all around! Highly recommend!
Last arrives on time and managed meals and clean up. I can count on her when she sits for us.
Our daughter loves Kat. We are so lucky to have found her.
Kat is a gem! Our son had a new tooth and some stranger anxiety when Kat sat him, and ended up really fussy the whole time, but she took it in stride and managed to calm him down. She is wonderful.
Was very pleased with how well our son reacted to Kat from the time of Kats arrival.
Kat was great with both of our children, 7 year old son and 22 month old daughter. Even when our daughter had some unusual cry outs, Kat was calm and collective and got her right back to sleep. We've already booked Kat again!!
Our older son was very excited to learn that Kat knows how to play Pokemon.
Kat is wonderful. She always arrives early with a great attitude, and my son has lots of fun when she sits for him!
She was great! Outgoing, caring, and responsible. We will use her again!
Kat is the best. My daughter jumps up and down with joy when she finds out Kat's coming to sit.
My kids actually ask me to go out just so we can book Kat to come hang out with them. She keeps them entertained and they have a lot of fun.
Kat did a great job. She was on time, great with the kids and with our dog.
My son, Payton, absolutely loved her and the first thing he said to me the following morning was, "When can Kat come again?" She was prompt, kind, jumped right in to help, and was absolutely terrific. Her Lego skills made a big impression on her too. :) Highly recommended and we've booked her again!
Our son had a great time with Kat, and everything went well.
Kat is beyond amazing - incredibly intelligent, easy going, builds great rapport with children and was patient!
Great job Kat!
Kat was wonderful. My kids loved her because she played games with them and was very engaging. She also read them books before bed. 5 stars!
So happy we were able to use Kat for babysitting - our daughter had the best time with her and we were happy with her too.
