Meet Gigi

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi there! My name is Gigi. I'm originally from Seattle and currently live in Crown Heights. I attended the University of San Francisco, where I graduated summa cum laude with a BA in Media Studies. I'm also a dancer! I currently work as a barista part-time and am taking classes in preparation for applying to MFA dance programs. I'm new to Sitter City but have tons of experience with kids-- I have a huge family with twelve (TWELVE!) nieces and nephews who I grew up babysitting regularly...mostly because my older siblings forced me to :). But, with that said, I'm learning no other work is as enriching or fulfilling as working with kids...so here I am! I am passionate about nurturing and supporting a child's creativity, curiosity, and individuality, as well as building healthy self-esteem! While I don't have any official certifications or training in childcare, I've learned a lot Read more and have had great success through teaching dance and tutoring. As I mentioned above, I plan to return to school for a MA/MFA in either dance or dance education so I can move into teaching dance to youth full-time and increasing access and awareness to the performing arts. In my own personal life, a lot of work is centered on using the arts as a healing modality, as well as working through generational trauma and dysfunctional family patterns and behaviors. I find that this work has taught me to become a more empathetic, nurturing, and patient person and has greatly impacted how I relate to children in particular. I am incredibly careful and intentional with my time spent around kids and hope to provide only the warmest, most supportive, and gently engaging environment! Thank you so much for reading and I look forward to helping out your family any way I can!
