Meet Dawna

I've been a nanny for 20+ years. I'm certified in infant CPR, CPR, First Aid, and I specialize in high risk babies such as twins, triplets, and health issues. I also worked 911 so I am well schooled. I prefer newborns to 12 months. I like to get them ready for daycare. But if you need a day at the spa, or a date night out, I'd love to be the one to give your babies love!! Wage is negotiable for the job. I'm looking for a newborn or infant for long term care.

Dawna came to our family when our baby was in a very rough stage for introducing someone new. He was not open to new people and was not getting along with his old sitter; he would just cry and cry no matter what she did. When Dawna came our baby was initially withdrawn but soon accepted her as if he had known her forever. We got over stranger awareness, teething, and mom gone some evenings for music rehearsals (the hardest time for him). No longer did we have to worry when we were working whether he was crying his eyes out. He enjoys his outings, walks to the park and just hanging around the house and yard. Dawna is also a very enthusiastic house cleaner when she is not multi-tasking our baby with our 3-year-old. Our children like pretty constant stimulation and Dawna is up for the task. You can immediately tell she has many years of experience. Thank you!
