Catherine’s Bio

"INTEGRITY" is one word to best describe me.  "COMPASSION" is the 2nd word.  I have been a caregiver for 25yr and have vast experience w/infants, preschool, grade school and H.S.  I consider myself a nurturing, fun, smart, reliable caregiver, who is also a great listener.  I will make learning a game full of fun and praise.  Being creative both outdoors and in, reading, playing games, cooking, music, art, sports or just quiet times are several things I like to include.  We have 5 adult children of our own (college grads) 2 precious dogs and I am CPR certified because of my Dental background for 15yrs in both clinical & mgmt.  Excellent references can be provided.  I look forward to speaking with you.

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.
