Catalina’s Bio

I'm a very caring person. I will provide full care to the child, that includes all his/her needs. I have had wonderful experiences with all the families I have worked with. I love praising a child. I think is very important to always make them feel helpful and important as well intelligent. I like to get creative with the children, and like to have art time as it helps expand their learning skills. I also prepared their meals, wash clothes etc. I am open to relocation and am just genuinely wanting to find the connection to the right family. I'm looking forward to working with a family in a sociable and respectful environment where the communication is key. I hope that I meet your qualifications and look forward to working with you. I have worked as a full-time nanny previously for ten years in long term positions which all can be verified by references. I grew up watching my mother be a nanny and learned a lot by working in her shadow and proceeded to gaining my own experience after gathering her expertise. My past childcare experience has been rewarding. I have been able to reach out to children in a way that impacts their life. Even children I don't nanny for now and see when I'm out will come up and say hi. It's like seeing people you went to high school with. I have vast amounts of experience with various ages(newborn to teen years)and with more than one child in a family. My vehicle does have current/liability insurance coverage mandated by the state. I also have experience in areas such as assisting in every phase of running a home,(running errands,doctor appointments.,grocery/clothes shopping,planning/preparing meals, after school activities,personal assistant to parents)making sure all phases of children/home needs are met while the parents are away for extended periods of time. The main priority of course are the children. I am able to utilize time-management skills effectively. The most rewarding is the feeling and the knowledge that my work is appreciated and the results of my work offer satisfaction and joy to ones who receive it. Children are our future. Its important to help them grow. I'm nurturing, punctual, energetic, reliable, positive, creative, and an intelligent person with good sense of humor. I love music, dancing, singing and playing the piano. I enjoy outdoor activities (sports, entertainment, etc.) and traveling. I love to cook and write poetry in my spare time. I have a keen interest for arts and design. I love to read and strive to learn as much as possible. I’m fun to be around, like to stay active and live a healthy lifestyle. I have genuwine love and affection for children, thus enjoy being around them. I have many years of experiences working with children of different ages and find easily common language with them. I have also plenty of experience in household management. I’m a self-starter, very neat, well-organized, and have a great capacity for multi-tasking. I have excellent organizational and communication skills, and possess a strong sense of responsibility. I want to be blessed with a family and I hope yours is the next one.

Scheduled an interview,1/25/11, and she called 10 minutes before her appointment because she was unable to make it. We then rescheduled for the next day and she never even bothered to call to say anything, just a no show. A very inconsiderate gesture. The fact that I am at home waiting specifically for her and she didn't even have the common courtesy to call was unacceptable. I then proceeded to call her and when she answered the phone the response was "I forgot." When dealing with families being reliable and courteous is so important . Many sitters on this site have lacked those very characteristics, which in turn, could place your children in questionable hands.

Provider's Response

I didn't realize you can see what pro please reviews are. I'm a hard worker and I treat families just as my own. I call them before they would ever have rescheduled with me. Try me out before you judge me off hear say I have bachelors degree if I wasn't prompt on time for class and on time and said things to my teacher like I forgot which I have never said in my life I'm sure I wouldn't have a double major in two fields with minor with honors in a sports scholarships where I not only cheerleader professionally but tennis too. I think if a review is not accurate people's made up opinions should not be recommend.
