Kristina’s Bio

Hello! I'm Kristina and I live in Somerville, MA.  I have almost 5 years of full-time nanny experience with children ages 3 months to 5 years, as well as several years of experience working with children ages birth to 21 as a clinical social worker (master's level, LICSW licensure). Over the years, I continue to return to the role of being a nanny because I love and enjoy it so much!

I am currently seeking a part-time morning position, that I can pair with a clinical position as an outpatient therapist during the week, where I primarily work 2nd shift hours. I would consider a live-in position, and would be available from 6:00am-10:00am. I would have all-day flexibility for Fridays (if planned in advance). I have a clean driving record, a reliable vehicle, and confidence transporting children safely. I am both First Aid and CPR certified, and I have certification in Crisis Prevention.

With a high education level and years of experience both in direct childcare and in clinical settings, I have found that the families I have worked with highly appreciate my expertise and find that I am a devoted caregiver who is "more than just a nanny" for their children. I have also worked with multiple families on a part-time, as needed basis. I look forward to speaking with you about your family's childcare needs!

Kristina was a wonderful babysitter. My husband and I have only left our daughter with a sitter twice in ten months (yikes...we are very nervous and protective first time parents!!!) and it was such a relief to find someone like Kristina to look after our daughter. I felt completely comfortable leaving Katie in her care, and Kristina did a wonderful job. I was delighted to come home to find Katie in bed (it's hard to put her down) and Kristina had even gotten her down in 15 minutes, which is nothing short of a small miracle in our household. I also appreciated that Kristina had left a timeline of what they did all afternoon and evening (ie. played on the bucket swings at the park, played with toys) and what foods she ate at what time. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kristina. She has a great way with children, especially our very little one. Thanks again, Kristina!
