Whitney’s Bio

I'm currently a behavior specialist at an elementary school. I work with kids with special behavior needs, but also help out in the classrooms with anything the teachers may need. With my days being busy, I did just buy a house and looking for some extra income, so I'm back on here looking for some extra house after school, in the evenings and on the weekends. I spend most of my time with my significant other and my little brother who's 8, and little sister who's 5. I also love to be active and go to beach, paddleboard, hike, and go on day adventures. I'm also a musician and spend time playing and writing music.

I have been babysitting since I was 12, then professionally doing respite at age 16.  So I now have over 15 years experience working with children of all ages and of all needs.  I'm pretty high energy, and can handle multiples or high energy children.  I take care of my little siblings very often.

I have one kitty, so cats do not bother me at all and I love dogs and will be getting one soon!!! 
My dad's side of the family is Mexican and I've grown up around spanish and am an advanced beginner.  I also speak beginning Dakota and Ojibwe.

When it comes to caregiving, I like to keep kids pretty active either together or on their own teaching them autonomy.  I like keeping the electronics at a minimum.  I really like to play music with the kids as I'm a musician and think it's really therapeutic for all children.  When it comes to food and discipline, I like to have a discussion with parents to see how they do it, and come to an understanding of what they expect from me as a caregiver.  I'm not strict, but I don't let kids take advantage of how nice I can be.

I also used to be a cleaning lady, and I know this sounds crazy, but I like to clean!  So I'm very comfortable with multi-tasking.  Watching the kids, doing laundry, cleaning up the kitchen...

All in all, I'm here to keep your kids safe, and hopefully we can have fun and learn a few things together as well!

Caring & Responsible Sitter!

Whitney was an amazing sitter for our infant daughter and our friend's infant son. She went above and beyond to ensure that we were comfortable hiring her and provided background check information, job history, and referrals. Whitney was transparent and responsive in her communications, arrived on time and we felt at ease leaving our babies in her care. Highly recommended!
