I am seeking a nanny position for overnight newborn/infant care! I am 34 years old and live in Mt. Helix with my fiancé and two Yorkies. I am a licensed real estate agent, hold a B.A. in English from ASU and have had many different types of nanny positions over the years. I became a full-time nanny the summer after my sophomore year at the University of Dayton, where I had been employed as a teacher's aid at the daycare on campus where Education majors learned how to teach children. I’ve travelled extensively both domestically and internationally as a live-in nanny, have worked for many high profile families and have had full-charge (24/7) care of children. I have cared for newborns as young as one day old, children with severe food allergies (having to carry an epi pen at all times), Asthma, ADHD, Autism and both developmental and social issues. Read more I have done PA and house manager work, have done house sitting and pet sitting for extended periods, and have babysat large numbers of children at parties and weddings. I consider all of the kids I care for my friends, and promise every family that I sit for reliability, a fun, positive, safe environment, and sincere care. I have had such a wonderful experience on Sittercity and have become great friends with quite a few families through this website. I am American Red Cross Child and Baby First Aid/CPR/AED certified (expires 8/23/2023).

I can't say enough wonderful things about Jessica. We absolutely love her!!! She has watched my two girls ages 2 1/2 and 3 months a few times and she has been great. She is always on time and professional. My girls love her and look forward to her coming. We will be requesting that she watch our kids many more times!!

Jessica has been working for me in my daycare for 8 months now. I consider myself fortunate to have a sitter that is intelligent, energetic and lots of fun. She is also skilled in dealing with all ages of children and infants, and asks relevant safety questions before being left with them. She is capable,reliable, hard working, punctual; Jessica is not a fan of TV so expect your children to be out and busy! It is not a given when hiring sitters that they will consider cleaning up after children a part of their job, Jessica always leaves our home immaculate. Jessica looks after my own children privately too and nothing excites them more than knowing they will get her to themselves for a few hours! An absolute gem!

Jessica is a star. She is has a great energy about her and my boys LOVE her. It is a good feeling to leave my kids with her and know they will be safe and happy. She is a keeper. Kim H

Jessica was our nanny this summer in La Jolla and we couldn't have asked for a more qualified person. She asked appropriate questions pertaining to our child, took the initiative in engaging in directive play and was highly flexible regarding our schedule. Our daughter loved when "Jess-a" came over to play! We just hope she's available next summer when we welcome another little one into our family! Thanks Jessica!

Jessica babysat my 2 year old and my 3 month old while we were vacationing in San Diego. She was perfectly on time and a wonderful babysitter. The kids loved her and were happy to see her each time she babysat for us. Your kids will be in good hands with Miss Jessica! She's truly delightful and reliable!

Jessica did some overnights for me. She was great with the kids and made me feel at ease while I was traveling. She was excellent with directions and guides for the kids and reinforced our house rules. The kids enjoyed having her and I knew the kids were is good hands. She is now my first call anytime I need a sitter!

Jessica watched our 6 year old daughter full-time this past summer and did a fantastic job! She is extremely responsible - I've never felt so comfortable with anyone watching my child. Thanks Jessica!

Lindsay T.


I might as well add to the list of glowing reviews about Jessica! She is wonderful. Our nearly-two-year-old son is normally very hesitant about new people and often cries when he meets someone for the first time, but he instantly loved Jessica, there was no transition time required, he was happy to start playing with her right away. She truly has a “gift� of connecting with kids. She’s extraordinarily organized, punctual and professional. I would recommend her to anyone – and we feel lucky to have found her.

Jessica was fabulous! We most certainly plan to ask her back. She asked all the right questions, was very friendly, and had a lot of fun with my one year old. We look forward to having her babysit again.

Jessica was wonderful with my 2 year old son. He had a good time and wants her to come play again. She was right on time and very friendly. We look forward to using her regularly.

Burgundy R.


Jessica was fantastic!! She arrived early and asked all of the important questions to have a successful babysitting experience. My son loved her and cried when she had left. We will definitely use her in the future if she is available.

Maggie T.


Jessica is a wonderful sitter! She was on time and was very patient and compassionate. We really enjoyed her and our boys loved her.

Manisha P.


She was on time, asked about my kids routine and bedtime. Also the part that impressed me and my husband was she asked about any allergy or any other routines with kids. Will be using her on regular basis! My kids warmed up to her very quickly.

Amy F.
