Hello! My name is Whitney, and I am an experienced babysitter residing in Brooklyn, NY. A bit more about me: I am 34 years old, and I am a theater director/choreographer. I have been babysitting for 23 years with 9 years of professional nanny experience in New York City, and I am certified in CPR and First Aid.

Whitney is amazing! She is like a part of our family. She is on time every day, is caring and loving with the kids, gets them to school on time, and sends me an update daily. We feel extremely lucky to have connected with Whitney.

Whitney is awesome! She watched my two kitties for an extended period of time while I was away on business and took amazing care of them both. One of them ended up needing multiple vet visits and she was there for him (and me!) the whole time. Upon my return-I could tell that both cats were content and happy. I would not hesitate to hire Whitney again. She is a great pet sitter and a lovely person.

Whitney was great! We were I town for a wedding, and she was externally flexible. She got to know the kids quickly - our two little boys (2 and 4 years old) were very comfortable with her. We highly recommend her!

Whitney babysat for my two children (ages 4 and 5) the other night, and the kids gave her 5 stars! She had an easy rapport with our family - the kids had a great time and even managed to get to bed on-time and get a good night sleep. She seems very trustworthy and dependable. Will use her again!

Whitney is a wonderful babysitter and nanny. She watched my daughter (now 9 months) for 3 months this summer from 9-7 every Mon, Wed, and Fri and did a superb job. My daughter had very bad separation anxiety at first and Whitney worked extremely hard to get her past it. In no time, my daughter was having a fantastic time. Whitney is extremely confident and capable - there is simply nothing she can't handle. You would be lucky to have her sit for you!

Whitney is terrific! She babysat several times for my 3 year old son while we were visiting NYC from London. She always arrived on time with a smile on her face. My son took to her immediately, even with jetlag! I highly recommend Whitney, and you will be very lucky to have her.

Our 6-month-old son had a blast with Whitney during our vacation. He was always smiling and laughing when he saw her. She was reliable, prompt and very energetic. As a new mom I was very scared about trusting a nanny with our son but Whitney put those fears to rest with her warm personality and nurturing ways. I highly recommend Whitney!

Whitney is really wonderful with children and has lots and lots of experience. She's seen it all, which is very comforting. Whitney is great at engineering and encouraging creative activities and is very enthusiastic about games and play in general. She is always prompt and responsible. All in all, a really great sitter.

Whitney watches our 2 year old and 6 month old sons every weekday morning. She starts super early at 6:30 am and is never late! She is very good with our kids and works very hard. I highly recommend her for any babysitting position.
