About me

Hi, My name is Alex! I am a graduate from James Madison University in Virginia with a major in Media Art and Design and a minor in Music Industry.

I have been living and working in NYC now for over a year. Currently, I work full time in the Media Industry, but I also really love working with children and I'm not ready to give it up just yet! Because of this, I usually babysit after work and on weekends.

I have been babysitting and nannying for over ten years. Along with that, I was a camp counselor for five years. I began babysitting in my home state of Pennsylvania as a teenager. Throughout college, I continued to babysit during the summers. When I graduated from JMU in 2014, I moved to Washington DC. While living there, I was a full-time after school nanny to a family with 2 children. I also consistently sat for a few other families in the mornings/weekends.

I moved to NYC in 2016 and I have kept up with babysitting here as well! Since living here, I have sat for a wide variety of families living in all different areas around Manhattan.

I have experience with children from the ages of 6 months to 14 years. I recently was asked which age group I enjoy working with the best, and I honestly was unable to pick! I love sitting for children of all ages, all for different reasons.

I also have experience with children with special needs (autism, ADHD, etc). I am patient and caring, as well as fun-loving, energetic, and outgoing. I love sports and art. I am extremely comfortable caring for children within the home, but I am also very happy to take them places (with parent approval) as well. I also have experience assisting with tutoring, meal prep, light housework, carpooling and household assistant needs.

I am looking forward to working with you!

I will be SmartSitting while...

Traveling! I also love going to museums, trying new restaurants, and discovering parts of New York City that I have never seen before. I love being outdoors and active. I try to travel as often as possible, but I like to stay local, as well. I love expressing my creative side! Whenever I go anywhere, I probably have a camera in hand.

In 5 years, I hope to be...

Still living in New York, working in a creative position. I hope to still be working with kids to some capacity as well! I would love to work at a nonprofit or volunteer organization in my free time.

Activities & skills I love to teach & share with children...

Sports and art! I genuinely love playing all sports. A big part of why I love babysitting is that I am able to play the sports I used to love as a kid again! I also love exploring my creativity with kids. Sometimes cooking or baking (with parental approval) is fun too! During the school year, homework help is something I really enjoy as well.
