Meet the Staff

Manager:

Kiley Cappetta

Kiley is a senior at Barnard from Connecticut, majoring in Psychology. She spends a good portion of her time behind a desk – either in class, at the library, or at the babysitting agency. Kiley enjoys reading, watching Netflix, and hanging out with fun kids. Her favorite parts of working at the BBA are connecting sitters with parents and making everyone happy!

Assistant Manager:

Natalia Carrero

Natalia is a junior at Barnard from New York City, majoring in Psychology and minoring in Early Childhood Education. She loves to work with kids and plans on becoming a teacher. When she isn’t answering the phone at the BBA desk, Natalia can be found singing a cappella with Notes and Keys, napping, watching Netflix, cooking, and guiltily reading YA dystopian fiction. Her favorite parts of working at the BBA are keeping the work environment organized and helping connect sitters with parents to accommodate everyone as efficiently as possible.

Receptionists:

Daniela Trapani

Daniela is a senior at Barnard from New Jersey, majoring in American Studies. When she is not at work at the agency, she attends meetings for the SGA Food Advisory Board and participates in sisterhood events with her sorority sisters of Alpha Omicron Pi. Daniela enjoys spending time with her friends, watching TV, and visiting her cats when she is home. Her favorite parts of working at the BBA are suggesting jobs to students and connecting students with parents as much as possible.

Nadia Saleh

Nadia is a sophomore at Barnard from Brooklyn, majoring in Computer Science. When she’s not behind the BBA desk, she can be found providing tech support with Barnard IT, knitting a scarf, or watching a musical from a very cheap seat. Her favorite part of working at the BBA is hearing from appreciative parents and sitters.

Nehad Abdelgadir

Nehad was born and raised in Brooklyn, New York. As a sophomore at Barnard, she aspires to be a Civil Engineer. Her favorite part about working in the BBA office is meeting the extraordinary student body affiliated with the agency. While away from the BBA office Nehad enjoys all things beauty. She could spend all day watching YouTube tutorials, shopping at Sephora, and give makeovers. In the fall, she will assume her position as the president of Skip Stop, a commuter organization on campus, to provide a sisterhood among the commuter students.

 

Manager Emeritus:

Kelsey Hand

Kelsey is a recent Barnard alum from rural Pennsylvania who majored in Sociology. While at Barnard, she divided her time between the babysitting agency where she worked for three years and an internship at an asset management firm where she worked for nearly two years. Kelsey loves cats, scary movies, denim shirts, and customer service. Her favorite parts about working at the BBA were making clients happy, her irreplaceable team, and the luxurious bathrooms that are always well-stocked with bobby pins.

Madeline Taylor

Madeline is a recent Barnard alum who majored in English and minored in Environmental Science. When she wasn’t answering emails for the babysitting agency, she was working on stage management for on-campus theater productions or rushing to a babysitting job. Madeline is passionate about education, working with kids, organization, and prompt email replies. Her favorite parts of working at the BBA included brainstorming new ways to make the service more effective and implementing those ideas with the phenomenal babysitting staff.
