My name is Samantha Henning, but I more frequently go by Sam. I've been living in Los Angeles for over five years. I moved here from Chicago where I completed my BFA at DePaul University and grew up in New Jersey. I have been babysitting for over 10 years, have 5 years experience as a summer camp counselor and camp director, substitute teach at a local preschool, and am comfortable with all kinds of children and families. I am fun, reliable, and experienced with everything from infants, toddlers, teens, siblings, friends, only children, allergies, pets, and just about anything else you can think of! I love working with families, and I am always looking to make new connections!

Without a call or text, just didn't show up to our agreed location/time for an in-person interview. Guess it's better to have her flake now than after being hired to watch my kids so I'm grateful for that. If there was an explanation to the no-show, would have totally given the benefit of the doubt but there was no excuse even to go off of. How disappointing.

Samantha watched my 3yr old and 5 month old girls. She was on time and took excellent care of them. She is very friendly and we plan on her watching the girls again.
