Meet Catherine

Hello! I have enjoyed babysitting, nannying, and mothering over the course of my life. I began at age 12 for children in my neighborhood, then continued caring for children part time while in college and working other jobs, right up until I had children of my own. My husband and I have raised four children, now adults and have flown the coop. I'm sincerely missing children! They are just such a joy, so funny, curious, authentic, and precious. It was always important to me to remain an involved and available mom, so that was my main job during their growing years, for which I have no regrets! They are all happy, healthy, well-adjusted and successful young adults. My girls are actually outstanding nannies themselves! I also hold experience with physically and developmentally disabled children, as I formally worked with Easter Seals. Now that I'm a young "empty nester," I am Read more trying to figure out my next steps. I recently helped a friend as she began her daycare business, and interacting with babies, toddlers, and young ones again felt refreshing and joyful. I value a healthy lifestyle which includes eating/cooking nutritiously, exercising and learning new things. Presently I care-give for an elderly, disabled lady, another area I have dedicated my life to. My strengths consist of compassion, empathy, listening, authenticity, and helping others. I also have experience caring for animals, as we have had several species, including dogs, cats, chickens, and smaller creatures. I can only imagine the stress parents now face with zoom classrooms and managing life with their children ever-present at home while juggling work at home!! I'd love to come alongside you to help with the most important task of caring for your greatest asset, your children. I am also more than willing to accomplish light housework cook, organize, care for animals and plants, and help with schoolwork (I homeschooled at different seasons as needed). Sincerely, Catherine
