Patricia’s Bio

Hello,

My name is Patricia Hill and I am I am a curious and creative human being. I attended the University of Hawaii and the New School here in New York. I have been a photographer for years and have raised a child here in Manhattan. I am educated and largely self taught due to my insatiable curiosity. I have begun babysitting recently as I feel there is a hole in my life that needs to be filled once again with the sound and interaction of children. I am extremely energetic and CPR and First Aid certified just in case.
Organization is one of my strong points, due to my career producing advertising photos. I worked with children frequently from birth through teen years and learned patience and ingenuity in cajoling them to cooperate.
I love cooking and keeping things tidy, but mostly I love interacting with children and helping to stimulate and guide them and keep them safe.
Having six siblings helped me enormously to learn about sharing and
compassion and competition.
Having gone through all of the usual earaches, fevers, chicken pox, broken arms, and ADHD issues, with my son, I feel I am well qualified to help other families raise their children safety.

Excellent. Can't say enough good about her!

I don't like to be hyperbolic because people often find unbalanced reviews hard to believe, in toto, but Patricia is the best sitter we've had. She has done short notice overnight and multiple days in a row. At all times, she brings activities for the kids (we have three - ages 11, 6 and 5), makes them good homemade food with whatever we have (and turning down take out, which we offer!), and has my house cleaner than when I left it. She's cheerful, willing to put in a level of effort that no parent should expect, comes prepared, gets to know the kids, keeps reasonable rules and control - and the kids still look forward to her coming back to babysit.

We can't recommend her enough. After five combined kids and 16 years of parenting, Patricia is the best sitter we've had.
