Hi! I'm mom to 3 children, grown & raised, here in Discovery Bay, since 1981. I have 5 grandchildren who call me "nannie": Dezmond (19) Payton (16) Eden (6) & Lennox (18 mths). KJ (3) and his mom, my daughter, Savanah, live with us. KJ is creative, loving & full of life! We care for him, part time. I truly enjoy communicating with children, playing with them & teaching them to appreciate their family and what they have in life. I am currently caring, part time, for my son's little ones, Eden & Lennox, along with KJ, also part time. I started nannying in 2014 for Heather Brewer, and have continued until now. In 2017-18, I picked up from school and tutored Julie Bess's two elementary school boys. Helping children knuckle down & complete their homework can be difficult, but I help them to realize that it is important, how Read more what they're learning, applies in their own day-to-day living, and that it is a building block for the rest of their life. I help boost their confidence & sincerely praise them for a job well done. My basic job history, is as a freelance makeup artist for Revlon, Almay, Boots, etc, and Floral Designing. Using my experience in floral designing for weddings & at a local floral shop, I volunteered to teach 30 teens, 4 classes a day, floral hair wreaths at the Renaissance Week for Liberty High School, 3 years in a row. I also enjoyed teaching young ones to draw & paint with the Rembrandt Art Program. Besides art, I teach children cooking, sewing, reading, and how to put their clothes & toys away properly. Good manners, a positive attitude and caring for family members are always of the utmost importance. I enjoy cooking, use Organic foods whenever possible & love to prepare great tasting meals. After my children moved out, I babysat for Heather Brewer, who wrote for our local paper, here in Discovery Bay. She has 2 children, Kaia, 10, & Silas, a darling 3 yr. old, (older now tho!) Silas & I played Lego's, bounced balls & read stories. We walk, run, tumble and play. I also sat for Dorothy and her 2 yr.old, Dylan. I completed my term, from Sept 2015 through April 2016, as a nanny & tutor, in Brentwood ,for Connar & Jordan, 10 & 9 yrs. old, respectively. Thank you for considering me and reading my bio~ Cathleen~

Cathleen watches my son regularly, twice to three times a week during the past school year when I volunteered at my daughter's school, and now during the summer, once a week while I work. My son adores her, and she is so friendly and reliable. She also deals well with my chaotic schedule and is an excellent communicator!
