Cate’s Bio

My name is Cate, I am currently in the process of moving back home to Downingtown, PA from South Florida.  For the past 10 years, I've been working as a paralegal. I am bored with working in the legal industry and would like to work in a more relaxed, fun environment.

I enjoy interacting with children young and old and I love knowing that I can positively impact someone else's life. I have been successful in finding families through Sittercity in times past, and I hope to be able to do the same now.

My goal is to provide a comfortable, trustworthy relationship for both children and their parents.  I have watched children with ages ranging from 3 months old to 16 years old and though I do not have a preference for age, I adore babies. At most, I have watched up to 7 children in one sitting.

I feel as though it is very important to understand and adopt your way of parenting to keep consistency within your home. I like to keep smiles on children's faces while adhering to family rules.

If you feel as though you would like to know more about me or think that you may be interested in using me as your babysitter or nanny, please feel free to contact me at your convenience. I look forward to hearing from you!

Cate is great with our three boys. She is always ahead of schedule, a good communicator, and an overall good person. Our 4yr old and 2yr old love to have her around. I would recommend Cate for any job.

Cate has been babysitting my boys aged 6 and 4 for nearly a year and has become a part of our family. She is reliable, punctual, responsible, fun and very sweet. My boys love her and so do we.

Cate has babysat for us quite a few times now and we have more dates set up for her to come back down the road. We have 3 children ages 11(girl), 9(boy), and 4(boy) years old. She was really great with the kids. They loved her! They took to her right away and I could tell from the first moment we met her she would be a great fit for our family. She is always right on time and I am thrilled that I found her on sitter city. She has done an excellent job and I would highly recommend her for any job. - Tracy S.

Cate was wonderful!!! She sat our 3 boys (ages 9, 7 and 5) for two nights while we were in town for my sister's wedding. It was a whirlwind weekend and Cate just jumped right into it. She really went out of her way to make things as easy as possible, offering to pick the boys up at the reception, bringing things they might like to play with, letting us know when they were back at the hotel and asleep. She was extremely responsible, punctual and flexible. We didn't give her the easiest situation - 3 boys in a hotel room with limited entertainment options and parents running here and there - but she didn't miss a beat. She was terrific and I highly recommend her.
