Robin’s Bio

I'm currently employed by a family in Squirrel Hill as nanny to their infant son. My contract is up at the end of August, when baby will go to daycare.

I moved to Pittsburgh three years ago after nearly ten years in New York City.  I babysat my way through college, and spent 4 years as a nanny for various families in both full- and part-time capacities. My skills include sleep coaching, potty training, cloth diapering, and handling both breast milk and formula.
A Western PA native, I'm a graduate of Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, with a BFA in Painting. In Brooklyn I cared for two girls, ages 3 and 6, after school each day for the past two years. Previously, I worked for another Brooklyn family as a full-time nanny to their daughter from the time she was 6 weeks old until 14 months. I also did after-school care for over a year for a child who was then 10 years old, in addition to many short-term part-time gigs.
I find that children enrich my artistic practice with their fresh viewpoints and many questions. I enjoy: 
Painting (with brushes or fingers),
helping with homework 
building Lego fortresses
play-doh sculpting 
coloring 
sharing my love of books
singing
And of course, gently encouraging everyone (self included) to clean up their messes.
I love to cook and will happily prepare a nutritious meal for your children, but I am a vegetarian who is uncomfortable handling raw meat. Reheating something already cooked or frozen is no problem.  You can read about my cooking at pennyparsnip.wordpress.com.
