Kat’s Bio

My name is Kat. I'm 24 years old and am a journalism graduate from Columbia College Chicago. I am the oldest of three children and have been babysitting for multiple families for over eight years. I consistently worked as a live in nanny/personal assistant for one family for three years. Over the years, I have watched children ranging in age from birth to thirteen years. I have dealt with sick kids, temper-tantrums, potty training, diaper changing, and overnight jobs. I have a high energy level, and truly enjoy playing with kids.
I live an active lifestyle as a novice runner, am a healthy eater and love to cook healthy. I have a love for all the arts--theater, music, applied arts and love to work that in with the kids. I also love sports and would love to run around a park throwing around a football or playing a basketball game. 
When babysitting, I always want to make sure the child is happy and comfortable with me as their sitter. I can't guarantee the house will be immaculate at the end of the night, but the kids with be happy and will be tired out from lots of playing. I'm not a huge fan of watching a lot of TV or movies with the kids I watch, I'd much rather be outside or playing a game. I can cook just about anything and am not afraid to encourage kids to eat fruits and veggies. I love kids and if they're happy, I'm pleased with how I did my job. That being said, I will always enforce discipline for rules with playing nice, bedtime, etc. without being mean.
My goal as a babysitter is to keep the child happy and safe. The biggest compliment I can get from the kids I sit for is when they ask their parents to go out so that I can come over and play, and that's the compliment I strive for.

Poor communication

We had cleared our schedule with the kids for a meeting with Kat last month but she was a no call, no show. I received a text message after our scheduled time apologizing that she ill and had accidentally texted another number. I have tried several times to schedule another babysitting date by text and email, and still have not received a response. I really thought she was our top choice! But communication is key with babysitting and this was pretty telling.
