Katelyn R. - Seeking Work in Clarence
Katelyn R.

Katelyn was wonderful with my daughter who at the time was 6-7 years old! My daughter has ADHD and Katelyn was always so calm and patient with her! I've known Katelyn’s stepmom since I was a little girl, so it was extra special to have her come and babysit! Natalie always got really excited when Katelyn would come over! I definitely recommend her. - Halie
