Kristina’s Bio

A little about myself: I have an absolutely wonderful 7 year old boy named Jacob.  He is the apple of my eye! At 20 months old he was diagnosed with Autism, but with the help of local community resources and therapy, I am happy to say that he is a high functioning child today.  Jake would accompany me to any babysitting job unless it is during school hours. He gets along fantastically with other kids. I also have an 11 year old stepson (Cameron) that I get to see about once a month.  Cameron has been in my life since he was three months old. I LOVE spending time with my children and enjoy doing all sorts of fun things!  Some of our favorites are going for walks, going to the park, zoo, gymnastics, pool, play areas, etc., playing board games, attending play dates, and doing arts and crafts. 

I have been babysitting since I was in my early teens, and took many courses throughout high school and college for early childhood development.  I graduated in 2003 from Oakland Community College with an Associates in Liberal Arts.  Since then, I have worked at Berkley Animal Clinic as a receptionist, social media specialist, marketing manager, and I get to play with the animals!

I'm pretty laid back, but definitely not a pushover.  I do enforce the rules while still being able to maintain respect from children.  I'm the mom in the neighborhood that all the kids come to when they want something - like a snack, somewhere safe to play, or a grown up to talk to.  I'm very outgoing, energetic, and responsible, and would love the opportunity to show you and your family what a great asset I could be!  I do have references available, and if you are interested, I will gladly forward them to you. 

I have had a background check and driving record check performed on my own and can give you copies of these if you request.  Also, I do not smoke, drink, or do drugs. I am CPR and First Aid certified as well!
