Katie’s Bio

I’m a graduate school-educated sitter (MA in Psychology) with over 12 years of experience as a babysitter, nanny, tutor and teaching artist for children of all ages and abilities. I've had the privilege of working long-term as a bilingual sitter/nanny with four amazing NYC families (children ages 6 months-9 years) and for many more families on an occasional basis. References from my previous employers are available upon request.

I have a great deal of experience with children facing a very wide range of special needs. I just completed my Masters in Psychology, specializing in child and adolescent counseling. As the daughter of an occupational therapist, I spent a lot of time shadowing my mom at her job, where she specialized in working with infants and preschoolers. In college, I assisted at a children’s theater for preteens and teens who stutter. In my work as a teaching artist, I’ve primarily served children and teens facing significant behavioral and emotional challenges. I’ve also cared for and taught children speaking ESL, as well as many gifted and talented children.

I'm currently looking for part-time and occasional work for this summer. I hope to hear from you soon!
