Elizabeth’s Bio

Hey Parents!

My name is Liz McDonough, and I live in Alexandria, VA. I am infant-focused career nanny with 8 years of full-time experience. I’ve used Sittercity since 2009, and I have over a decade of babysitting experience. I have stellar references, and I have been trained in child/infant CPR and choking prevention (updated 11/17) and crisis intervention. I also completed an internship where I worked with preschool-age refugees. My driving record is spotless, and I’m an excellent cook. I can help you get organized, and keep the house together. I am a skilled professional, and completely reliable. Since Sittercity charges $15 every 3 months to maintain a basic background check, I will happily provide one by request, but can’t sustain it year round.

Kids are imaginative, creative, silly and fun. This is the best! I love working with kids because I feel like I have a positive influence in their development, and I have fun every day that I'm at work! I'm good at art projects and creative play and I have a lot of patience.

I’m calm and easy to be around, and since I work mainly with infants and toddlers, I know that establishing simple boundaries early helps our little ones develop into happy, confident kids. My philosophy on discipline has been shaped by my research and implementation of suggestions from “Mr. Rodgers Parenting Book” and “Love and Logic Magic.” I believe that setting clear expectations with simple consequences is the best way to help a child learn boundaries and learn how to interact with society.

I am a relaxed and happy person and I’m recently engaged! She and I are currently planning for our June 2020 wedding. My family is very important to us. We spend lots of time with my sisters, brother in laws, niece, nephews and parents.

Thank you for your interest!
