Kathy’s Bio

Hello families! My name is Kathy, and I am a warm, loving professional nanny with 35+ years of childcare experience. My humble beginnings as the 2nd eldest child from a family of 6 children fostered my love for children. My Mom had 6 children under the age of 11, so I received a lot of exposure on how to nurture & care for little ones. As I became a teen, I started babysitting for a family with five children, ages 2-7 yrs- it was a breeze and I enjoyed it immensely!When my husband & I started our family, we decided that I would be a stay at home mom with our 3 children. I nursed most of them as babies, and bottle fed our son. As they grew, I was able to have the pleasure of home schooling them for 2 yrs. A year later, I started babysitting in our home for 9 children, ages newborn to 10 years old.As time went by, my husband &got involved in Therapeutic Foster Care with Hillside Children's Center. We began taking intensive courses that would equip us to help the emotionally, physically and sexually abused children that would come to live with us. After we gained certification, we began caring for 3  abused foster children at a time, as well as 3 of our children, totaling 6 children in our home. our children's ages were 12, 10 & 5. We had a very loving, happy, noisy, busy home during those 8 years! During that time, we cared for approximately 30 children, ages ranging from 3 months old to 18 years old. Some children stayed just a night as an emergency visit- others lived with us for 5 or more years, depending on their situation. We worked along side them in achieving their goals. Most of them had to learn to deal with their abuses,  personal hygiene, how to handle/ control their damaged emotions, and how to deal with others and learning basic social skills. Because of their abuses, other children had trouble just carrying out life's simple normal routines. We spent quite a bit of time driving them to their numerous appointments to doctors, psychiatrists, dentists, school meetings, AAA meetings,counselors, and back & forth to their parents' home each weekend. We were very involved with some of the parents, helping them and their children to reach their goals of eventually returning home, if possible, or entering a group home when they turned 18. All in all, it was a deeply moving and satisfying time of our lives. we were honored at our annual Christmas banquet as "Foster Parents of the month. I've been a professional nanny now for 8 yrs now and love it!
