Mackenzie’s Bio

I have been babysitting since age 11 and I was a lifeguard for 4 summers. My CPR certification is expired, however I would be happy to re-certify and/or take any other certifications upon request. Additionally, I welcome you to run the enhanced background or motor vehicle check on your own expense.

I graduated from The Ohio State University with a B.S. majoring in Human Development and Family Science. I had an internship with Specialized Alternatives for Families and Youth. My husband was a Captain in the Marine Corps and in 2010 we were stationed in North Carolina. As a recent grad in a new state (not knowing how long we would be there) I took a nannying job with a family that turned out to be more than I could ever ask for. 

I was with their family for over 2 years. The boys were 2 and a half years and 5 months old when I left. I truly believe I was more than a nanny for them and they were more than a job for me. They were the family I didn't have down there, especially while my husband was deployed.  I still visit them and they come visit us too!

In 2012 we moved to Northern Virginia for a new job for him. Initially, I started working in the child care room at Local Motion Studio but then began teaching Creative Movement classes there for 2 and 3 year olds. Simultaneously, I had multiple babysitting jobs for children of ages 9 weeks through 8 years as well as an afternoon nanny job for a 6 year old girl.

That 'nanny job' also turned out to be more than I could ever ask for. Two working professional parents and one sweet, intelligent, mature little girl (and their beautiful golden retriever) were the perfect fit for me at the time. I transitioned from after school pickup around 12-15 hours a week- to up to 30 hours doing additional school drop AM drop offs or overnight stays when necessary, household work, many errands, as well as administrative assistance for the mother's business.

I ended up staying with them the entire two years we lived there until we relocated again! I was very sad to leave the family I worked for (again) but was happy to move back to my husband's home state of NJ.

I worked with a wonderful family here until I had my daughter in December of 2014. Had it not been for medical issues that required prolonged hospital stays with her, I would have continued working for them.

Currently, I am looking to get back to work but am hoping to find an opportunity in which I can bring her the majority of the time.

Amazing babysitter and nanny!

Mackenzie is an amazing babysitter and nanny! We began using her as an occasional babysitter, but quickly expanded her job to be nanny position because she was such a help to our whole family. She is a wonderful caregiver, very loving, extremely organized, and incredibly reliable. Now that she and her husband have relocated to NJ, it will be incredibly hard to replace her.
