My name is Vanessa, and I am currently a psychology student with some child development coursework. I have 7 years of professional nanny experience, as well as first hand mothering experience caring for my now 5 year old son. I also have 2 year experience as a infant/ preschool substitute teacher. I am currently a part time behavioral therapist working with kids ages 2years-21 years. I love watching, and helping children grow and learn. Arts & crafts are one of my favorite things to.

Vanessa has been such a huge help to me and my family! She is extremely reliable and is always on time. She engages with my son rather than "just watching" him which is very important to me. I'm very glad we found Vanessa and definitely recommend her without hesitation. She also has a son so that could be why she's such a natural.

Vanessa was excellent with my son and very reliable. My son seemed to really enjoy his time with her. She did a very good job baby sitting for us and I will continue to use Vanessa in the future when we need a babysitter.
