Catherine’s Bio

Hi! I'm currently working part time as a Communications Coordinator for Boston Health Care for the Homeless Program, and also going to UMass Boston for a post-baccalaureate degree in biology. My previous degree is in Writing, Literature and Publishing from Emerson College. I've lived in the Boston metro area for approximately 8 years, currently residing in Somerville, MA.

I have been babysitting children of all ages since high school, though in recent years I have babysit regularly for a 9 month old, 3 year old, and 9 year old twins. I have babysat up to 4 children, often after school and helping them with homework. I have also helped out at children's parties and sleepovers. In college I worked as a counselor at a sleep-away camp for girls ages 7-14.

I love the outdoors and spend my summers hiking, biking, and camping. I'm also a beekeeper, sometimes rock climber, avid reader, and craft maker. I'm a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts, and have decorated Brownie, Junior and Senior vests to prove it! My time in the Girl Scouts has taught me to leave a place better than you found it, and I try to incorporate that motto throughout my life. I'm a vegetarian, but have no problem preparing meals to meet any child's dietary needs. I'm an active babysitter and aim to have fun with your kids, not just sit back and watch tv (unless they want to play independently, in which case I can do some light cleaning or meal prep) -- I love playing games (board games, hide and seek, puzzles, cards, charades), going to the park, constructing forts, etc. I'm very patient, compassionate, and love working with kids. I hope to one day work for an environmental program that incorporates education and research.
