Lindsey did not work out for our family. We found her pushy and only focused on the money aspect of the job.

Lindsey’s Bio

I have worked with children for over fifteen years. Starting out by babysitting neighbors and family friends children and volunteering in summer camps through high school. Then in college, interning and working at elementary schools and non-profits while getting my degree in Sociology and Social Work. After graduating I moved to Portland and have lived here for seven years. I worked for over four years as a full time early childhood education teacher with children newborn through six and as an after school and summer camp counselor with school ages youth. I currently intern with non-profits that provide arts education to youth throughout Portland and nanny for 3 families on a weekly basis. I am looking to be added to a couple more families sitter call lists, and am available in the evenings roughly 3-11pm M-F and flexible on weekends. Through red cross I have been cpr/first aid certified and background checked through the state of Oregon childcare registry, I have great references, and am very dependable. I love doing arts and crafts, reading, and field trips with kids. I hope to get to know your family and provide quality childcare in your home.

Provider's Response

Uriah, sorry you felt this way. I guarantee that while caring for your child my focus was completely on them but when parents come home the focus is then on payment for the hard work provided. I do not know if it was my hourly rate or the fact that I require a minimum of 3 hours per job but I hope you have since found a better sitter for your family. Take care!
