Hello, I'm a mother of four children ranging between 28-14 years old. One of them has a social disability. I'm very knowledgeable about ADHD and the spectrum of autism. I'm a certified medical assistant but my main focus is being a Nanny/Mothers helper/Personal Assistant/Home Manager because it gives me a great sense of purpose in my life. Im CPR/first-aid trained and I've tutored many adults in the medical field plus children in elementary school. I make learning fun and easy. My one true passion in life is helping others. That's the best satisfaction and feeling in the world.

Maxine is incredibly attentive and responsive to parent requests. She cared for our 5 month old--and did a great job reassuring us since it was our first time leaving our daughter with a sitter. Our daughter had a great time with her and was easily put to bed. Book Maxine with confidence that your child will get lots of love and care.

When we lived in Sunnyvale, CA we used Maxine only once on Sept 2, 2016. She took our job for date night babysitting on Friday night at 8pm. We leave our home shortly after. I got a text message 11:12pm saying: Hey there, Sorry to bother your date but i have to be at work again by 7am which means i gotta get up by 5:30am. 11:13pm me: I understand. We are wrapping up now. We are in walking distance. 11:13pm her: Awesome 11:56pm her: I REALLY need to go please. 12:00am me: OKAY, They are closing our tab 12:01am her: Thank you Needless to say my husband and I were very upset. Why take the job? We left as soon as we could for fear she would leave our children home. We never used her again.
