Ms. Alexys

Birthday: December 27

Hometown: St. Martin, U.S. Virgin Islands

Favorite Crayola color: Fire Truck Red

Background: I am a recent FAMU graduate in pursuit of my doctoral degree. I love children and have been babysitting for the last decade. I have experience with children ranging from six months up to fourteen years old. I have been a summer camp counselor for the past three years and I'm comfortable managing multiples. I served as a tutor for grade levels 4 through 8. I love doing arts and crafts and teaching young minds about different cultures and countries. I look forward to sitting for local Tallahassee families. I'm sure it will be my pleasure!

I have experience caring for a child with allergies and asthma.

Future plans: I am currently applying to graduate school to obtain my doctorate degree in Physical Therapy.

When she's not babysitting: I love to travel (anywhere I’ve never been is always exciting), read, and watch movies. I also like cooking/baking, trying new restaurants, and do-it-yourself crafts.

Defining quotations:

"You can’t cheat the grind, it knows how much you’ve invested. It won’t give you anything you haven’t earned."

"Nothing beats a can’t BUT a try."

I just wanted to tell you how wonderful Alexys was today. She truly went above and beyond helping out during the family photos this afternoon (in the rain!). She was so eager to help out in every way, even helping the photographer at one point. Our son loved her as well. She is very confident and a natural caretaker. All of the girls we have had babysit from Seminole Sitters have been great. But Alexys by far takes the cake. She is an absolute pleasure and we felt very comfortable with her. I can’t wait to have her babysit again.

We absolutely LOVE Alexys. She was wonderful with both kids and J took to her in about 5 minutes. She has a fantastic demeanor with children, especially one J’s age who is still trying to work on manners and rules. She is a great combination of being both a friend as well as a teacher...getting him engaged in the activities beyond just play and keeping on top of him with respect to manners. We felt like we hit the jackpot and are so excited to have her back over. Thank you so much for sending her our way. J is already asking when she can come back over to play.

Alexys is a super fantastic sitter and obviously cares deeply for those left in her charge. We adore her. 😊

Alexys was awesome! Aleks loved her and has asked to hang out with her several times since! We definitely look forward to requesting her services again in the future.

My first time using Seminole Sitters was this past Saturday evening. Alexys came over to watch our 3 boys. She was professional, courteous, and caring. Thanks Seminole Sitters for allowing us to have a much needed date night!
