Meet Kelly!

Hi! My name is Kelly D. I am originally from Massachusetts and I have been babysitting since around the time I was 12.  I was also a nanny for a family for four years and became a part of their family. I am a senior at NCSU majoring in Fashion and Textiles and minoring in Business Administration. This past summer I was a merchant analyst intern for Kohl’s in Wisconsin. At NCSU, I work in the College of Textiles Dean’s Office and volunteer at the Avent West Church mentoring children from grades 1-5. I love helping the kids with homework and playing fun games with them. I volunteer twice a week and being with the kids is my favorite time of the week. I love being around kids because they always put a smile on my face. I recently joined Stellar Sitters and am excited for the chance to work with more children!

Meet Megan!

Megan Loman

My name is Megan L. and I am 23 years old. I have been working with Stellar Sitters since May 2016. I graduated from NC State University in May 2015 with an Elementary Education Major (STEM Concentration) and Spanish Minor. I have been babysitting a variety of aged children for 10 years! I have experience with watching children as young as 3 months old up to 13 years old and I have experience caring for 4 children at once, but also sat for more in group settings.  I not only have experience babysitting children, but I have been a child care worker and camp counselor for many different ages at Lifetime Fitness.  I also have tutored and mentored children through the YMCA and Catholic Charities Organization. I began my babysitting career as a “mother’s helper” for my neighbors and I always loved helping my own mother take care of my little sister growing up. Children’s minds are so creative and fun which makes the job exciting and fun for me! When I babysit I enjoy taking children to parks, the pool, playing board games, arts and crafts or anything else that is of interest to the child. I grew up in Annandale, VA right outside of Washington, D.C. and I am one of 4 kids. I currently teach first grade in Wake County and I absolutely love it! Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, gardening, exercising and traveling. While I was in college I had the opportunity to study abroad in Spain and I also was a nanny one summer for 2 weeks in Italy! I look forward to meeting your children!
