Meet Hope

  • Comfortable with pets

Hi! I worked for a daycare center while in college and also spent 6 months as an au pair in Dublin, Ireland. Since moving to NYC in 2010 I have been babysitting steadily for children from 6 months old to 11 years old. I love playing with kids, reading them stories, singing songs, doing arts and crafts, and helping them learn. They never cease to amaze me. Having fun is important, but I am also a firm believer in safety and cleanliness. Communication and flexibility are imperative when taking care of children. I was a theatre major in college and a music minor. I sing and play piano. Recently, I started learning guitar and I love it! I was also a gymnast. When not acting or playing with kids, I enjoy traveling and running. To date, I have run five full marathons, including being part of the American Cancer Society's Read more team for the NYC Marathon. Recent shows I was in include Freckleface Strawberry as the Ballet Girl in Iowa and a national tour of Lilly's Purple Plastic Purse; both are children's shows based on books. You may also have seen me as Zuzu the Elf at Macy's Santaland or in the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade as a Despicable Me minion. I am a huge fan of Frozen and can sing almost any Disney song upon request. Hi! I worked for a daycare center while in college and also spent 6 months as an au pair in Dublin, Ireland. Since moving to NYC four years ago, I have sat for children from 6 months to 11 years old. My favorite activities to do with children are reading, singing, dancing, and doing arts and crafts. Having fun is important but I am also very safety-conscious. At this time I am only seeking occasional spot sitting jobs. I am CPR and First Aid certified and have a valid passport. I am happy to provide references. Looking forward to meeting you!

Hope was great. Very good with my 3 yr old. He warmed up to her quickly and had a lot of fun. (Which is saying something since this was his first time with a sitter he didn’t know.) I wouldn’t hesitate to book her again or to recommend her.

We interviewed Hope and thought she was wonderful -- fun, loving, smart. We went with someone else for unrelated reasons, but any family would be very lucky to have her!

Hope has been a consistently dependable and responsible nanny for my daughter. So much so that I could be fully focused during the work day and know that my child was in excellent, capable hands. Hope's background in drama contributed to a lot of wonderful imaginary, creative play which my daughter loved. Hope was always wiling to participate, play games, costar in skits and take an active roll in play. She was excellent at supervising daily homework assignments and communicating any issues that might arise, with me. I would strongly recommend Hope as a nanny for your family.
