Robin’s Bio

I moved to Pittsburgh two years ago after nearly ten years in New York City.  I babysat my way through college, then spent 4 years as a nanny for various families in both full- and part-time capacities.  Until my move, I cared for two girls, ages 3 and 6, in Brooklyn after school each day for two years.

 Currently I'm looking for a few hours of sitting per week to supplement my other job, which is in nonprofit fundraising. I currently live in Highland Park with my partner and our bunny. I do not have a car, although I do have a license and clean driving record. Therefore, I am willing to occasionally drive your kids around in your vehicle, but you need to be located off of a decent bus line (Highland Park, Shadyside, Oakland, East Lib, Aspinwall, Friendship, etc.)

A native of rural Western PA, I'm a graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, with a BFA in Painting.  I find that kids enrich my artistic practice with their fresh viewpoints and many questions.  I enjoy: 
Painting (with brushes or fingers)
helping with homework 
building Lego fortresses
play-doh sculpting 
coloring 
reading aloud and being read aloud to
And of course, gently encouraging everyone (self included) to clean up their messes.
I love to cook and will happily prepare a nutritious meal for your children, but I am a vegetarian who is uncomfortable handling raw meat. Reheating something already cooked or frozen is no problem.  You can read about my cooking at pennyparsnip.wordpress.com. I'm also pretty darn good at getting kids to try new foods and eat their vegetables.

I'm not crazy about dogs, but cats and other small animals are ok.

Robin has been a baby-sitter in our church nursery for several years. She is incredible, punctual, creative, and always remains CALM! She is one of my favorite baby-sitters and I recommend her highly. She also baby-sits for several families in our church!
