Catherine’s Bio

"INTEGRITY" best describes me in one word.  "COMPASSION"   would be the 2nd word.  I have been a caregiver for over 25yrs to children, seniors and our beloved pets.  I consider myself a nurturing, fun, smart & reliable caregiver.  I truly LISTEN and care about what YOU NEED & also bring a much needed sense of humor with me.  I try to encourage mild physical therapy if allowed, along with mental stimulation by playing any kind of games or cards. Music & gentle massage can also bring a huge benefit. I have been complemented on my cooking & can offer a huge variety. Personal note: We have 5 adult children (college grads), 2 precious dogs and I am CPR certified because of my Dental background of 15yrs in both clinical & mgmt.  I can provide excellent references and look forward to speaking with you soon.

Cathy is so warm and friendly! My children loved her from the moment that she stepped into our home. She made me and my husband very comfortable and assured us that she would take excellent care of my children and she did!!! I would recommend Cathy to anyone that wants the best care for their kids! She cooks too :) My children can not wait for her to come back!

Cathy is amazing! She has been the first babysitter our children have had, and I can't say enough good things about her. From the moment she met my children (ages 2 and 6), she put them at ease. Her kind, gentle manner is exactly what my children need. It was also what I needed, being slightly nervous about leaving my kids with a sitter for the first time. After the first day my kids met Cathy, they kept asking when she was going to come back! She quickly picked up on the personalities of my children and instictively knew what each one needed. It's rare that you meet somehow who inspires trust so quickly, but Cathy is one of those people. She is truly a very special person and a terrific sitter.

- Kathleen S.

If you have a chance to work with Cathy, jump at it! She has been our full time babysitter for one month and our daughter absolutely loves her. Cathy is professional, reliable, and prompt. She has a true gift for interacting with children. Our daughter loves the games she plays with Cathy and learns new things from her every week. She is so creative and engaging with our daughter, and I love how she has expanded her imagination. I feel confident that our daughter is very safe in Cathy's care. Her experience and kind manner make her an A+++ babysitter. I can't say enough good things about Cathy! She is the babysitter you are searching for and are praying to find for your family, and I am confident that she will bring laughter and joy to any home.
