Meet Courtney

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! I'm a recent NYU Tisch Drama grad.  Born and raised in Houston, Texas, I've been living in NYC for about 6 years now, specifically Brooklyn (15 min from Union Square!) for the last 2.  I've been with my current families for nearly two years: one with 4.5 year old twins as well as another family with awesome boys, 5 and 7 years of age.  I also sit for a few other families on occasion with children ranging from 18 months to 11 years of age.  I would love to be your part-time sitter in the mornings or sit for your weekday date nights. I have approximately 7 years of experience in the New York City and Houston areas with the care of infants, toddlers, and grade school age children. I'm CPR (infants, children, adults)/AED+Standard First Aid certified. Other related experience includes: volunteering with the BOOKS Program, running the children's Read more library at Ben Taub Hospital (Houston, TX) & volunteering at Free Arts NYC. Patience and communication is key with children of all ages. I'm not quick to anger and am a natural problem solver. Attentive, creative, and engaging, I love to get on a child's level, interacting and becoming apart of his or her world while still remaining in charge.   Nurturing a child's personality is what I am all about. Responsible, determined, and loyal, I'm a young woman with a good heart and equally good sense of humor. Apparently, I'm really modest, too.   My interests include: the arts, community service, social justice, photography, traveling, camping/hiking/anything outdoors, staying active: most sports, getting in a solid workout, and especially, love a good spin class. If youre looking for an easy-going but enthusiastic sitter, then youve found her :)

Our family really loves Courtney. She has endless energy & always in an upbeat mood & ready to play. She follows any instructions we have given her & I believe she is one of the best babysitters on here. I credit her for starting our 3 y/o with imaginary play. Our daughter kept talking about her imaginary friends, a train ride and this and that after some time with Courtney... all before she was talking about imaginary things with my wife and I. Thank you Courtney! (But please parents, don't steal her from us...)

Courtney is amazing! She is a fantastic babysitter - very reliable, very intuitive, and definitely trustworthy. I have two boys who are definitely both a handful and she manages them with a great sense of calm and confidence. They both love her and I can't say that they have loved all of their babysitters! I would definitely recommend Courtney!
