Meet Kristen

I have been living in Southern California with my husband since fall of 2012, while working as a nanny for families with children ranging in ages newborn to school-aged. Prior to that, I was working as a nanny and preschool teacher while living in Phoenix for one year after spending two years in Chicago. There I attended graduate school in an art therapy program and worked as a nanny/babysitter. My experience with childcare is varied and dates back to 20 years ago, when I first started babysitting.

I have been living in Southern California with my husband since fall of 2012, while working as a nanny for families with children ranging in ages newborn to school-aged. Prior to that, I was working as a nanny and preschool teacher while living in Phoenix for one year after spending two years in Chicago. There I attended graduate school in an art therapy program and worked as a nanny/babysitter. My experience with childcare is varied and dates back to 20 years ago, when I first started babysitting. While in college, I continued to babysit and was also employed as a preschool teacher, nanny, an after-school program leader, and a certified lifeguard, where I was a child swim instructor. I have provided childcare to children in age ranges from newborn to adolescents, including working as a mentor/instructor with elementary, middle school, and high school students. In addition to my work experience, I have over 1,000 volunteer hours in which I had many different duties, but I primarily worked with children (nationally and internationally). I am compassionate and dedicated to making a positive impact in the lives of others. I am passionate about childcare and feel comfortable in all age ranges, from infants to teenagers.

Cassandra B. says:
Kristen is amazing and quickly has become part of our family. The kids love her and my husband and I do as well. She has fun activities arranged for the children on a daily basis and I would highly recommend her to anyone! I have no concerns when I leave my children with her...in fact she often text messages and/or sends pictures of their daily activities when I am away! So lucky to have found her.

Lori B. says:
I conducted a phone interview with Kristen and she seemed like she might be a good fit, but she did not show up for the follow-up, in-person interview.

Kristen M. responds:
I am sorry to hear you had a negative experience, but I think there might be some confusion or at the very least some miscommunication. I felt that I was very clear and direct when I cancelled my interview and wished you and your family the best. My aim was to be respectful as I did not want to waste your valuable time as well as give other candidates a chance, as I did not think it would be the best fit. I... More
Rachel K. says:
I exchanged message with Kristen and we also spoke on the phone. She is warm and personable. She was very professional and definitely someone I would work with had our needs matched up.
