My name is Caitlyn and I'm 25 years old. I recently graduated from Marquette University with a degree in Biomedical Sciences. Through college I worked as a care giver for seniors with dementia and Alzheimer's disease. This included getting residents up out of bed in the morning, escorting to bathroom and providing hygienic care, assisting with meals, light exercise and entertainment, out of neighborhood excursions, bathing, and getting back to bed at the end of the day.

Caitlyn has done a great job with our 8-year-old son on multiple occasions. She is our "go-to" babysitter.
We had to change our start time a bit (later) than originally planned, and Caitlyn very kindly accommodated us. She showed up on time and did a great job watching our son, who is in a wheelchair with a broken leg. She engaged with him with board games and he really seems to like her. We already have plans to use her again and would recommend her to others.
