Cait’s Bio

I have cared for children since I was 10 years old, when I became a mother's helper for an infant in my small community. Since then, I have been involved with one family or another - from Minnesota, to South Dakota, to Portland and San Francisco. I'd love to establish a similar situation here in Chicago. I grew up in Sioux Falls, South Dakota and graduated from Reed College with a degree in English. I found my first job in San Francisco, CA as a research assistant within UCSF's OB/GYN department. While in San Francisco, I volunteered as a birth/postpartum Doula and as a children's grief group facilitator. I finished my Master's program in Social Work at the University of Chicago this June. I focus on early childhood issues and Family Support. I am the silly babysitter, the one who will do the voices in a story, get dirty outside, and do crafts for a few hours. I also love art and culture and introducing kids to it, so going out on the town with them is a treat.
