Meet Kristy

  • Comfortable with pets

I seriously love hanging out with children.They are so full of amazing energy and such a joy to be around. I am passionate about children because you can learn a lot from them, like how to enjoy the simple things in life.  I have been working with children for the past 15 years in the position of babysitter, camp councilor, daycare assistant, preschool teacher, lifeguard, and volunteering at Alexian Brothers Hospital in the nursery. I have worked with all ages from newborn to 16 years old. I love working with children and getting to know them and their individual personalities.  I also enjoy watching children grow and learn, helping them as they grow and face new challenges and letting them express themselves in their own way. Kids are simply my favorite to be around, they are so full of life and are so observant and I love to listen to what they Read more have to say. I’m very approachable and a great listener. I’m patient and forgiving and always look on the brighter side of all situations. I was raised to always respect my elders, treat people the way I want to be treated, and to always be a leader and not a follower. These three things have shaped who I am today and I am very lucky to be a part of my wonderful family. I am the oldest of six kids and have five younger brothers. My mom was a stay at home mom my entire life and it would babysit children in her home when I was very young and I would always help her around the house. I’ve been babysitting since I was 12 years old and Was helping my mom with my brothers with changing your diapers getting them ready for the day since I was eight years old. Been around kids my whole life and there’s nothing more rewarding than bringing a smile to a kids face.
