Whitney’s Bio

I am an experienced babysitter currently residing in Brooklyn. A bit more about me: I am 28 years old, and I graduated magna cum laude with a Bachelor’s degree in Theatre from Hofstra University. I have been babysitting for approximately 17 years with 6 years of professional nanny experience in Manhattan, and I am certified in CPR and First Aid. Prior to my experience in New York, I babysat for local families in my home state of Massachusetts for 10 years, as well as held numerous camp counselor positions for children 4-15. I am comfortable with infants! I am very enthusiastic and athletic, and I know lots of games and songs. If I sound like the fun, responsible sitter you've been looking for, please contact me!!

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.

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 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.

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 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!
