Katherine’s Bio

My experience with children ranges from babysitting to having a full time job working with children. I started babysitting when I was thirteen and haven't stopped since! I have watched children during the day, night and on many occassions, for whole weekends at a time! I am responsible and experienced in this field. I previously worked at a Montessori school for more than 2 years and at a preschool and daycare for 6 years. I full time nannied for 4 months and have co-hosted a Parents Night Out once a month for 6 years. I have had CPR and First Aid training and have received this training every 2 years since 1997. I have worked with a wide range of ages...4 week old infants to teenagers! I love art, music and working with kids! I know a bit of sign language and have experience in teaching numbers, letters, letter sounds, colors and assisting children with homework assignments.  I have since been working at a pediatricians office and enjoy the work very much but miss the day to day interaction with the children and enjoy sitting for families!

Katie took care of our two year old son Tyler. He absolutely had a wonderful time (based on the constant smiles and non stop talking on Tyler's part). She arrived on time, was very proffessional and cared for Tyler from the moment she arrived. She picked up after Tyler and gave us a full report on how he did. I felt very comfortable leaving him in her care. We will certainly hire Katie again in the future.

Katie recently took care of my three boys (ages 4, 8, and 11) and was great. She is very friendly, responsible and obviously really enjoys working with kids. The boys really had fun and all of our bedtime routines were followed. Each of the boys gave her a big thumbs up and would like her to come back soon. I will definitely call on Katie again for babysitting in the future.

Katie is a nanny for our 5 month old daughter. She is amazing! She is loving, dependable, experienced. I couldn't have hoped to find a better person to take care of my daughter.Katie had enabled me to go back to work part-time and not worry about my baby's happiness and safety. Katie is our supper-nanny!

Katie is an absolute joy and has been watching our little guy since he was 3 weeks old. She is always on time and is extremely confident in watching Grady while we are out for the evening. Katie is the best!

Katie is a wonderful sitter for our son David. What makes her
so great is that she interacts with him in his creative play (which our son loves). She is utterly professional,warm, and friendly. If we could afford it, we would snatch her up as a full time nanny before someone else did!

Katie took excellent care of our 4-month-old baby son. She was a very good communicator, trustworthy and did a great job. I would recommend her highly and we plan to use her again.

Katie is one of the best sitters we have ever had! She is always on time, friendly, dependable, and most important the kids LOVE her. When she show up they can't wait to get us out of the house. I highly recommend her to any looking for a sitter.

If I could give Kate 10 stars, I would! My 7-year-old son was experiencing some pretty severe behavior problems last spring. There aren't many people who would be willing and able to deal with what Kate had to go through for a babysitting job. She probably should have turned around and headed back out the door, but she didn't. She handled the situation like a pro - firm, caring, calm, and compassionate. What's more, she was exceeding supportive to my husband and I, the ragged parents! She's continued to "sit" for our son on a relatively regular basis for the past months. He thinks she absolutely rocks. And we agree! She prompt, responsible, always goes the extra mile (and more), and obviously cares about and understands kids on a very deep level. On top of that, she's a thoroughly admirable, enjoyable, and interesting human being to be around.

Katie is absolutely fabulous. She has had no problems caring for our four and two yr old girls (who can be a bit WILD at times). The girls love seeing her enter the door and can't wait
to see us go (that's great as a parent). We feel very secure using Katie and she is a fantastic person as well.

Provider's Response

Thank you so much, Liz! Your girls are adorable and a pleasure to sit for!

Katie has been watching my 5 month old son for over 3 months. She is the best! She is always on-time and dependable. When I leave for the evening, I am completely confident that my son is in good hands. I'd recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, reliable, and fun babysitter!

Katie is a wonderful baby sitter. She has been our primary babysitter for our son Ben since he was 3 months old. (He is now 3 and a half) he loves her so much. We use her religiously twice a month for date night and it is very comforting to have someone that our son knows be a part of his life and be able to feed him dinner and always successfully put him to sleep. Two months ago we added a baby girl to the mix and despite some extreme colic we were still able to go out and enjoy a concert on our anniversary knowing she was in very safe hands. Katie is fair, reliable, and super sweet. She is also very trustworthy, flexible, and self sufficient. Out of the entire 3.5 years we have been using her I think she has only been sick one time. My whole family enjoys her company and we know we are so lucky to have her. It is also easy to see that she loves children and has plenty of experience. I couldn't recommend her more.
