Meet Katelyn

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi there, My name is Katelyn. I grew up out east on Long Island in a town on the north shore. Throughout high school during the summer I would lifeguard out in the Hamptons, where I was also trained in CPR. During this time I babysat for three different families for many years from when I was in high school up until college. I moved to the city in 2005 to attend school. I was working and going to school full time. (I can send you my resume as well) I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelors Degree in Business Marketing, Advertising & Promotions. After graduation, I continued working and also started to babysit again on my day off and on weekends. I babysat for a family in Redhook, Brooklyn for 6 months back in 2012. They were the parents of a fun, loving 3-year-old boy Arel. They were a Read more really nice family and I enjoyed sitting for them. Arel was a lot of fun to babysit and loved playing soccer outside at the park or playing at the playground. On rainy days we would read inside at the library or play arts and crafts at home. This family had a large pit bull dog which was a little scary for me. I love dogs but have a slight fear of pit bulls. So every time I would sit for them they would bring the dog to doggy daycare. And after a while I started to feel bad that this became costly for them to keep up with. I also started a new full time job for a fashion designer. They wanted me to continue to sit for them but with my new full time job I was unable to. After settling into my new job in fashion, I started to babysit for a family in 2013-2014 on my two days off and on weekend nights. They were really nice people and I loved babysitting for them. I started for them when their son was 6 months old and watched him crawl to learning how to walk and then run. He was such a happy baby and a lot of fun to sit for. I would take him to classes and the playground some days. Unfortunately they winded up moving a few months ago. Since then I left the fashion industry and have been focusing on my next career path. And in the mean time I would love to start babysitting again. I have never canceled/been late/or missed babysitting for any family. I'm reliable, honest, hardworking and love kids! On nice days I love going for walks or playing at the nearby park or playground. On cold or rainy days I love going to the library and reading books. I can cook/prepare light snacks or meals. I always clean up after in the kitchen or child's play area. I also don't mind running errands.

Katelyn is an incredible sitter. She entered our home with a kind, genuine smile. She's got a mellow/calming/positive energy.

Our daughter immediately felt at ease with Katelyn and asked for her this morning! We are looking forward to booking her again for another night out sometime soon.
