Katie’s Bio

I am a Christian Marine wife. My husband is a Marine stationed at Camp Geiger as a SOI ITB Combat Instructor while I live here in our home and finish my degree in Early Childhood Elementary Education.  We are currently expecting our own little bundle of joy to arrive Dec 25, 2012!! I absolutely love children; they are such a joy to be around. I have been babysitting for over 13 years, starting with my newborn cousin. Since then, I have held many babysitting jobs and was also accepted as a nanny while living in Tampa. My last expereince was caring for a 24 month old of whom I watched since he was 6 months old.
I am a very active person and do not like to sit around. I love to entertain and always be doing activities such as going for a walk or playing at a playground. My home does not drink, smoke, or use foul language. I understand that children are like little sponges and I want nothing more than to make a positive impact on the children I work with!

Katie is like the Baby Whisperer. She is SO good with our baby. She can even get him to take a bottle--something his grandma and I, his mom, even struggle with! Plus she is super flexible and is really wonderful to work with. I almost hesitate to make a review because I don't want anyone snatching her away from us! ;) I recommended Katie to our neighbor, who has a toddler, and they love her, too. She's amazing.

Awe! Caitlyn, thank you for such a sweet review! I <3 your family and Mr. Josiah is just a doll. I do have to say, he is getting too big and we must find a way to stop time!!! Thank you for giving me the opportunity to be welcomed into your home and to care for your precious son!

Katie is amazing! She actually managed to quell our screaming, clingy (yet absolutely wonderful) toddler before we even pulled out of the driveway the first time Katie met her. Our daughter loves her, and has a blast when they play together. Plus, she puts up with our annoying pets, agrees to cooperate with my texting updates while I'm gone, and even leaves the house looking better than my husband could do on his best day. HIred!

This is such a sweet family! "2 MINTS!!" Callie is so full of exuberance and so sweet. She's such an easy child to care for because she knows exactly what she wants, even if it takes me, the babysitter, 2 hours to figure out that "ohoh ahah" means "find the monkey!"

Thank you, Smith family, for the opportunity to babysit for you and meet Miss Callie! (I can always be hired for "OCD cleaning lessons" as well ;) just kidding!)

I can not say enough wonderful things about Mrs. Katie. We are very picky about who we let around our children and would not hesitate to have Katie back in our home any time! (As long as the vomit hasn't scared her off:)!

My oldest woke up saying how much fun he had with Mrs. Katie and asked when she could come back. Our son Kyle who can be very attached took to Katie without a problem, this is a big plus in my book!

Thank you again Katie!!

This is the most kind hearted, loyal person a mother or father could ever meet. My children normally do not respond to people the way they did her and I am so excited for them to see her again! Thank you so much for everything and being there for us! We love you Katie! Amber, Kev, Aiden n Alyssa!

Katie is a wonderful babysitter! She babysat my two year old son for me several times even on very short notice. I trust her completely, and he always has a fun time with her. She's taken him on walks and he's been able to play outside- things he loves. On his first day, he was able to relax and take a great nap for her. I was hesitate to leave him with anyone, but now I have no problem at all dropping him off at Katie's house. :) Thank you, Katie. We love you!

Katie is an AMAZING sitter! She had 5 children for a total of 7 hours at my house, and I came home that evening to the house quiet (all kids asleep with no problems), and the house actually tidied (and I know the kids had to have trashed it!). She arrived on time to my house, was super friendly to myself and the kids, and most importantly was able to control such a large number of children. I would recommend her to anyone! Thanks so much Katie!

Katie seemed very enthusiastic about watching my two boys. She responded to my short notice job posting for two nights in a row of sitting in my home, and agreed to the job via email. That night she was a no show. I gave her the benefit of the doubt, and told her I understand things come up, and asked if she was still planning to sit the following night. I never heard back from her, and ended up missing both nights of training.
I posted another job recently for a consistant sitter, she responded letting me know I could drop them off at her house if I don't find someone. I responded, giving her my cell number and letting her know I would like to meet first. Again, she has not responded. I find Katie to be irresponsible, and would not reccomend her if you have a date you cannot miss.

- Amber R.

Provider's Response

This is completely untrue. As my other reviews will find that I am completely reliable and am always in contact with parents. I did email Amber to let her know since she lived 4 houses down from me that I was able to watch her children "if she didn't find someone else." I had not heard back from Amber after that email. I am sorry if there was a misunderstanding, however, from one babysitter to another both living aboard base, I don't think this one star rating was appropriate.

I am deeply saddened to see a negative review for our sitter Katie! There must have been a HUGE misunderstanding. She has proven to be responsible time and time again for us. She currently watches our three month old. Katie is always happy to see us very early in the morning when I drop her off, and my baby is ALWAYS happy, clean and well cared for when picked up. While at work Katie updates me throughout the day with messages and pictures. I can not thank her enough for taking such wonderful care of our daughter while I am away at work.
