Kathleen’s Bio

I'm a recent graduate of the University of Portland with a degree in Communication Studies and a minor in French language studies. I'm really excited about this new chapter of my life! I'm looking for a full time job, so my babysitting time is limited to evenings and weekends. 
I'm no child-care guru and don't have my own kids, but I've been babysitting on and off since I was 12 or so. I have experience with children from 6 months - 12 years old, but most of my experience lies in the middle of that range; 3-6 or so. Most recently I've been caring for an adorable 4-year-old who has a lot of energy. We like to play outside when the weather is nice and make up sports to play with his toys! Our favorite is kickball with the huge bouncy exercise ball. He also taught me how to do a somersault!
I don't have a childcare philosophy, per se, but I definitely don't like to park kids in front of the TV. I love to play outside and inside - the best is when we can combine our imaginations with activity! 
I've had pets all my life, so reasobly well behaved dogs and cats are no problem.

Kathleen was very responsive and prompt. She made me feel comfortable and was very personable. I hired her last minute for a one time job for my six month old, and if I lived in the area I would definitely use her again. She kept us informed through text messages how our baby was doing, which was a nice touch so I didn't feel the need to call.

Kathleen did a great job caring for our 10 year old and 5 month old. We were in town for the weekend so she cared for them at the hotel. Our 10 year old enjoyed her time with Kathleen and the baby was obviously well cared for. Kathleen went above and beyond to arrive on time to an extremely busy hotel even taking the stairs when the elevators were over burdened.
