Meet Kathleen

Over the past 22 years, I have provided services intermittently for various families with differing needs. As a teen, I cared for children in my neighborhood, a beautiful area 40 minutes from the Atlantic shore. I love the water, especially the pool and beaches. The children I have cared for have ranged from newborns to young adolescents, including a position with a group home for emotionally-challenged adolescent girls after graduating from Salisbury State University in 1995.

Over the past 22 years, I have provided services intermittently for various families with differing needs. As a teen, I cared for children in my neighborhood, a beautiful area 40 minutes from the Atlantic shore. I love the water, especially the pool and beaches. The children I have cared for have ranged from newborns to young adolescents, including a position with a group home for emotionally-challenged adolescent girls after graduating from Salisbury State University in 1995. I worked for 10 years in Ocean Pines, MD, for a company that catered to tourists visiting the Maryland seashore. Under the guidance of owner and founder, I became one of the busiest and most respected caregivers working for her. She decided to retire the last year I worked for her and college took me in a different direction. Since graduating in 1995, my career path has included care-giving for children as much as canine and feline kids. I have always had very excellent responses from the families I worked for. Most recently, some members of the private club in which I worked suggested engaging in further work. I am very grateful that a very dear friend of mine encouraged me to apply here.

Leslie S. says:
Kathy has helped twice with backup care for my two children (ages 9 & 11). She has done a great job and I feel very comfortable leaving my kids in her care. She has been very attentive to them, made sure she did everything they needed for before and after school care, and was able to manage them without difficulty. She was also a big help to me around the house! She also helped my mom for a few hours when... More

Kathy came in on short notice for an interview with us. She was punctual and very professional. Our toddlers took to her fairly quickly. They wanted to play with her and were engaging her in their activities. We look forward to working with Kathy very soon.
