Stephanie’s Bio

I often wish I'd had a person like me when I was young to cart me around and make each day a little more colorful. Not to mention how much I like helping people, especially children, be happy and healthy. For the last four years, I have been trusted with the care of two baby boys on the Lower East Side, from age 3-months to 22 months. I was with both of them for about 19 months consecutively. A little about me... I'm the youngest of five, and an aunt to 12. I've traveled across country and met more people than I'd ever imagine. I'm a writer, and I love theater. I'm funny, my facial expressions are limitless, I love to exercise generosity and kindness and I relish in a life of tranquility. This doesn't mean that everything must be easy and peaceful all the time... but even chaos with an underlying sense of peace is good. I love to be out in the sun and enjoy delicious new foods. I love to play in playgrounds and swing and spend time with my friends. I like to ride my bike, travel, and help people in any way I can. I also like to paint, garden, play with animals, do hair, paint nails, watch movies, cook, listen to music, see live music shows, yoga, and enjoy creating and appreciating art. I adore the little dog I adopted from the NYC pound in December of 2009, and his "sister", my bunny named bunnie, as well as their newly adopted bunny brother Lionel, and my mom's disgruntled cat! I live in an amazing section of the Bronx right near a beautiful park. I have an open mind, a great personality, I'm reliable, trustworthy, and extremely patient (which I think is the Most important when dealing with any child). I'm also funny! I'd love the opportunity to speak with you about your position!

In the last six months, I have developed a really fun small business called "FrankenStuffs". FrankenStuffs are one of a kind and handmade from the mixed up parts of previously loved stuffed animals. Typically on the weekends, you can find me selling them at the Hester Street Fair in NYC! Please check them out, you will see a lot of my personality in that project :)

Stephanie looked after our preschool age daughter for several months and she was great! Competent, funny, interested and completely reliable. I'll be off work over the next couple of months so we won't have her in on a regular basis, but if the need arises she'll definitely be the one we call. Highly recommended!

Stephanie took care of my little boy from when he was 7 months old until he was 19 months old. She also occasionally cared for my 4 year old girl. She was with my family a full year and in that time she became like family to me. Stephanie is smart, resourceful, and loving. Stephanie never missed a day of work and was flexible when I needed to work a little late. Stephanie is very responsible and I trust her to make good decisions with my kids. But most importantly, Stephanie cared for my son with so much love. She was playful and instructive and yet never the push over. One day I came home from work and she had somehow taught my son to sign the word for "please" instead of crying when he wants something. Adorable and such better behavior! Now that my little guy is going to nursery school I will miss Stephanie. You and your kids would be lucky to have her in your life.
