Meet Jackie

  • Comfortable with pets

Hello! My name is Jackie.  I've been working with children as long as I can remember. I grew up with an older sister with autism and a younger brother, and so it was a natural step for me to work with children as I had been helping my mother look after my sister and brother for years.  I have worked as a camp counselor, age group manager, and performing arts director at Camp Aloha Hive (a traditional summer camp for girls) for seven summers. I have worked as a New York City Babysitter since I moved here in 2010 to pursue acting. Additionally, I previously held a position as both a teacher and administrator at The New York Kids Club (an upscale early enrichment center). I have a passion for teaching performing arts to children and have done so professionally at Camp Aloha Hive for girls, The Florida Repertory Theatre, Read more and at The Lost Colony's Children's Theatre Program. I have experience working with children aged 3 months to 13 years old of both genders, and with children who have special needs. I have also been an substitute assistant teacher in a special needs classroom in a public school. I have an undergraduate degree in Musical theatre and an MFA in acting at The New School for Drama. As I live my life as a performing artist, I often problem-solve in a creative way and love inspiring children in that way as well.  I would love to get to know your child and be a help to your family. *References available upon request after communication.

Jackie was wonderful. Energetic, playful, warm, has excellent instincts with children. My boisterous six year old loved her and my very clingy two year old let me leave the house no problem!

Jackie put us instantly at ease and was able to handle a 15 month old in the throws of stranger danger. She took him out for a good time at the park and I came home to a peacefully sleeping baby.

Jackie was great! So playful and engaging with our 13 month old. Would use her again and again! Very mature, calm and good natured. She's a natural with little kids.

Jackie was fantastic! My kids adored her and had so much fun! I think they did more with her in two hours than they do in an entire weekend! We would absolutely book her again!
