I worked as a head photographer for three summers, as well as an arts and crafts counselor at an overnight summer camp working with girls between the ages of 6 and 15. I have also babysat for six families in Chicago as well as NY part-time, ages ranging from 7 months to 10 years old. I nannied for a family with two boys full-time, ages 7 months and almost 3, as well as for a little girl who was 18 months in Chicago after I graduated college. Following that I was a nanny for two families in New York ages 2.5 and 5 , and a baby girl who was 6 months. I recently finished nannying for a family with two girls ages 12 and 10 and had been with them for over a year as a live-in nanny in San Francisco. I had been working as a short-term nanny Read more in San Francisco for the past two months prior to moving to Los Angeles for a family with a 1.5 year old boy and a 4 year old girl. I am currently nannying for to 2 year olds in Los Angeles but they are going to daycare soon. I have a lot of energy and patience with children. I am First Aid and CPR certified and have a clean driving record. I have experience working with multiple children at once and I am careful to show them all equal attention. I love the energy children have and the happiness they experience while helping them find creative ways to have fun Currently I am looking for a part-time position for a few full days a week, or a full time position. I look forward to hearing from you!

Sarah I.


Ellen is a great babysitter. She has lots of energy and enjoys being around kids. She is also very aware of my needs and is ready to do chores around the house (laundry, dishes, etc.). She is also a fun person to have around and fit into our family well. I highly recommend Ellen if you need a babysitter. She is in high demand!
