Alex U.

Three Words that Best Describe Alex:  Playful, Witty, Patient 

Artistry and Special Skills:  Acting, Drawing/Painting, Singing, Dancing, Embroidery 

Alex was born and raised in sunny Southern California. There she fostered a love for art including playing instruments, singing, dancing, and acting. Alex moved across the country for college and loved New York so much, she moved into the city following graduation. When Alex isn’t on stage you can find her at the movies, reading a book, learning more about space, or enjoying a good cat nap. She is very excited to be part of the Artist Babysitting Team.

Childcare Experience:  Alex has been caring for children since high school. She started by making blankets for babies in the NICU so their mothers could hold the blankets and let their babies smell them. Her love for children only grew from there. Alex has watched children from 18 months to 12 years old. She has experience changing diapers and potty training (all the fun that comes with younger children.) She also helps with homework, takes children to play dates and extracurricular actives, and prepares meals. She also loves to play pretend because children have the best imaginations. Alex believes that every day is an opportunity to learn and hopes that every child she cares for learns something new. 

Personal Interests:  Alex has cultivated many interests outside acting. She loves watching and performing stand up comedy. She has a deep fascination with deep space and what lies beyond ourselves. She has always loved reading and her time spent on the subway has been a great asset to Alex’s reading list. You can always find her catching up on her favorite tv shows or listening to podcasts. When Alex is back home, she loves taking time to go on outdoor adventures like days hikes or camping trips. She has been lucky enough to travel around Europe and would love to visit South America and Southeast Asia.
