February's Top Sitter of the Month: Kylie!

A big congrats to our second Top Sitter of the Month, Kylie H., from New York! We were able to sit down with her to hear more about her experience with Chime, some of her tips and tricks, and where she plans to go on her Chime Getaway!

Why chime?

The scheduling is really simple and straightforward and it's easy to go in and update my schedule. On some other sitting sites, I'd have to apply every single time and I wasn't sure what kind of family I was going to get. I like that both the sitters and families are vetted through Chime, so there is security on both ends.

What tips do you have for a new Chime sitter?

I would definitely suggest reaching out to the families you are booked with to confirm the time and learn of anything you need to know beforehand. Also, after your first booking it kind of starts a snowball of bookings, and you get to work as much as your want and enjoy the great experience!

What are you passionate about outside of Chime?

I really like traveling. I'm so excited to have won this trip. I also really like animals. I have two cats of my own and I volunteer my time to animal shelters. The care and protection of animals is really important to me.

How do you manage Chime around the rest of your life?

I sit on evenings and weekends because I have a full-time office job. I tend to keep my schedule open, so if I have something come up with work or socially, I can change my availability easily.

Tell us where you plan on going for your Chime Getaway!

I've always wanted to go to New Zealand. My friend went there for her honeymoon and it looks so amazing. But my brother and sister-in-law live in Hawaii, so I may visit them. They are scuba instructors, so that could be a fun scuba trip!
