Organized And Fun-Loving Nanny Looking To Support You.

I'm here to support you. Every family has its own rhythms and rules. I'm here to join your team, help facilitate those rhythms and enforce those rules. I hope to ease and simplify your routine through childcare, general household support and having fun with your child! My educational background includes classes in elementary education, and I have successfully helped a family navigate all versions of virtual school since the beginning of the 2020 school year. I believe in helping your child advocate for themselves, problem-solving together, building in hands-on learning and rebooting the computer before getting too upset. I'm comfortable running errands, assisting with light house-keeping (I love to organize) and meals. I enjoy meal planning/prep/cooking and am knowledgeable in adhering to special diets and working around food allergies (Ex. Whole30/Paleo, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free, Soy-Free etc.) CPR certified.
Background Check
Reviewed by Liz G. 5/5 stars
Katie was a wonderful addition to our family this fall and winter! She is a great communicator, punctual, friendly, caring, and creative. She provided care for our 5 year old during hybrid learning. Not only did she help him with his school work, but she took him outside almost daily and always had a creative project ready to try. Sometimes my son can have challenging behaviors, but she always remains calm and firm, yet compassionate. She also would clearly communicate expectations for him and fill me in when I returned home from work. I never worried when my son was with Katie. He is sad to be going back to school full time as he said he will miss his time with her!
