Ms. Alexys J.

Birthday: December 27

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

Favorite Crayola color: Crimson

Background: I am a FAMU graduate headed to Nursing school within the next year. I love children and have been caring for little ones for the past fourteen years. I have experience with children of all ages and backgrounds. I also have extensive experience working with premature babies and children who have special needs, disabilities and severe allergies. I volunteer as a summer camp counselor so I am comfortable managing multiples. I served as a tutor for grade levels 4 through 8. I love doing arts and crafts, baking, outdoor activities and teaching young minds about different cultures. I have been with Seminole Sitters for almost 4 years now and I thoroughly enjoy babysitting for local Tallahassee families. It has been my pleasure to work with every family over the years and I hold the responsibility of caring for children very close to my heart.

She’s cared for children as young as: 1 week old

Future Plans: I am applying to Nursing school to become a Pediatric and Family Nurse Practitioner.

When she's not babysitting: I love to travel (anywhere that I’ve never been is always exciting), read and watch movies (there is not a cartoon movie I have not seen!). I also enjoy cooking/baking, trying new restaurants, and do-it-yourself crafts.

Defining quotations: “No excuse every produced a productive result.” and “Knowledge is the touch of wisdom.”

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.

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!
