Heather J.|Philadelphia, PA

$15-25/hr 10 yrs exp 31 yrs old


My name is Heather, I currently work remotely for Long Island University and have a flexible schedule that could work with yours. Working in the field of education, I am knowledgeable about distance learning platforms and can assist with navigating online school work. My educational background is in psychology (Bachelors and Masters degrees). Over the past 10 + years, I have worked as a behavioral therapist, habilitation staff for individuals with special needs, and babysitter/nanny. From March 2015-September 2018, I babysat for a family with twin girls. From 2018 to 2020, I have babysat for a 3-year-old boy (currently 5-year-old). I love kids, and genuinely enjoy helping them learn and grow. I have excellent references upon request. I also have a certification in CPR/AED for children and infants from the Red Cross. I look forward to meeting you and your family!
Background Check
Reviewed by Mari M. 5/5 stars
Heather served as an after-school "nanny" for my son through his ages 3-5. Bottom line is that she's amazing! Incredibly mature, calm, able to handle child meltdowns in the heat of a summer in Philadelphia with ease. She was consistently very "on" and engaged with my son, and took the initiative to research different local activities to take him to (library, parks, taking advantage of museum memberships, etc.) My son loves her, and vice versa, she was very protective of him, voicing her opinion and advising us when she felt he needed an advocate in his preschool environment. She served as a true partner to us as parents, consulting and using her expertise, but also respecting our wishes in terms of preferences we had. We moved out of state, but still stay in touch with her. She was with us at the start of the pandemic and was very transparent about any potential exposure as we all navigated and learned about that. Hire with confidence!
