Sitter of the Month: Reilly O.

Sitter of the Month: Reilly O.

Reilly O. is a sitter we just adore here at Hello Sitter. She’s been with us from the beginning, and while she doesn’t take a ton of bookings, she’s a star at the ones she does take. Like many of our sitters, she’s a recent college grad finding her way in the city, working a cool day job and taking some sitting jobs when she can. Her reason? “I like to stay active on nights and weekends, and have chosen to spend some of my spare time working with young children,” she explains in her profile. Talk about mature…  that’s definitely not how we were spending our free moments in our 20’s (in retrospect, we should’ve followed Reilly’s lead and traded some of those wild nights out for sweet nights in with kids!). Veteran Hello Sitter families know they’re getting an experienced, fun, and responsible NYC babysitter when they see Reilly is available for a job, and we wish we could clone her a million times over! Here’s a little more from Reilly herself.

Hails from: Cheshire, CT

Degree: Mass Communication major with Business Administration minor, Eastern Connecticut State University

Experience: Eight years

Have sibs?: One younger sister

A cool toy: Mini remote-controlled helicopter!

Separation anxiety sike-out: Grab their favorite toy or book and keep them distracted

A good book: If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Joffe Numeroff

Hangry head-off: Sliced apples with peanut butter and dark chocolate chips

When she’s not working: I attend yoga and spinning classes, read, and binge-watch the latest Netflix hits
