Catherine’s Bio

"INTEGRITY" is one word to best describe me.  "COMPASSION" is the 2nd word.  I have been a caregiver for 25yr and have vast experience w/infants, preschool, grade school and H.S.  I consider myself a nurturing, fun, smart, reliable caregiver, who is also a great listener.  I will make learning a game full of fun and praise.  Being creative both outdoors and in, reading, playing games, cooking, music, art, sports or just quiet times are several things I like to include.  We have 5 adult children of our own (college grads), 2 precious dogs and I am CPR certified because of my Dental background for 15yrs in both clinical & mgmt.  Excellent references can be provided.  I look forward to speaking with you.

Cathy is amazing! She has been the first babysitter our children have had, and I can't say enough good things about her. From the moment she met my children (ages 2 and 6), she put them at ease. Her kind, gentle manner is exactly what my children need. It was also what I needed, being slightly nervous about leaving my kids with a sitter for the first time. After the first day my kids met Cathy, they kept asking when she was going to come back! She quickly picked up on the personalities of my children and instictively knew what each one needed. It's rare that you meet somehow who inspires trust so quickly, but Cathy is one of those people. She is truly a very special person and a terrific sitter.

Cathy is great!!!!

Cathy is so warm and friendly! My children loved her from the moment that she stepped into our home. She made me and my husband very comfortable and assured us that she would take excellent care of my children and she did!!! I would recommend Cathy to anyone that wants the best care for their kids! She cooks too :) My children can not wait for her to come back!
