My name is Jocelyn and I'm fun, creative, and full of energy. I have been a part time babysitter/nanny since the age of 15. I have provided care for children of all ages. Additionally, my husband and I have 2 children: a 6 year old son and 2 year old daughter. I currently work at a nonprofit that serves children but taught for 5 years as a Spanish teacher. I am a strong believer in education and am a graduate of Spelman College in Atlanta, Georgia (c/o 2011!) I have a BA in Spanish with a minor in Drama and a MA in Teaching.  I am also CPR/First Aid certified.  Concerning my style as a babysitter, I am a hard worker and my hourly wages are flexible. I am an excellent cook, if I do say so myself ;), and I don't mind doing housework here and there.

Jocelyn has watched our children on several occasions. She is a very mature young lady who really cares about pets. Not only did she spend time with our dogs but she also cared for our two children (they loved her too). Each time we returned from an outing she would have a little journal describing what she had done for the day Example: Walked the dogs twice, fed dogs, brushed dogs, etc. We really appreciated having the feedback. Jocelyn also washed our dishes and did some lighthousekeeping and we did not even ask her to do it. She is a wonderful person who really enjoys her job. We would highly recommend her for petsitting, babysitting, and housekeeping.

Jocelyn is a very loving and caring sitter; you can tell she genuinely cares for kids. She is very responsible, trustworthy, and very mature. Jocelyn always shows up on time and is very dependable. She is an excellent cook and involves the children in the task. She speaks several languages and our kids were delighted to learn some phrases in Japanese. I would highly recommend her for your sitter/nanny needs.

After interviewing several sitters we decided to chose Jocelyn because she had 8 reviews (under her sitter profile) and they were all excellent. We contacted 6 of her references and each person highly recommended her. We now understand why. Jocelyn is an excellent caregiver and you can tell she genuinely cares about kids. Our kids were blown away by her ability to cook (they actually participated) with the task. She taught them phrases in Japanese, and helped them complete a school project. We are so happy to have found a responsible and trustworthy sitter. We only wanted a sitter for one day but our children requested that she come back and so she was able to sit for two days. Jocelyn is extremely dependable and showed up early each day. We are very lucky to have found such a mature and responsible young lady. We will definitely continue to use her as a sitter and would highly recommend her to others.

Jocelyn was set to sit for us. After not showing up 15 minutes late, I called her and she said she forgot. Then said she would jump in her car and come on over. Called back and said the traffice was stopped. Do not believe she even got in her car. This was an important business dinner we were to attend. I would not use her if I were you. Hopefully she will learn from this .... You can't forget to go to work!!! If I had not called her .. She would have just not showed up!

Jocelyn was set to sit for us on a Saturday night for the very first time. We had communicated the day before. After waiting 20 minutes when she did not show up ..... I called her and she commented "I totally forgot." I am glad I called her otherwise we would still be waiting. Then said she would jump in the car and be there in 20 mins. She then called back to say she was stuck in traffic on the highway and could not make it at all. We got on the highway just after that and there was no traffic. I hope she can use this as a learning experience for when she enters the real job market!!

Jocelyn is a wonderful babysitter. First, my son is very comfortable with her and I'm always impressed with how she handles the transition when we leave for the night. Second, she is very responsible and thinks of things to ask about if I have forgotten to go over everything. I can tell she has a "good head" on her shoulders and could handle anything that might come up.

My son, Ian, fell in love with Jocelyn the first day he met her. She is very good at handling my very independent 4-year old. She has been prompt and efficient at confirming the appointments.

We used Jocelyn for the first time on Friday night. My son loved her! We have her on the calendar for a few more dates in the future.

Jocelyn was great with our 2-year old daughter, Sophie. She was prompt, responsible, gentle and provided a written recap of their day together. ~ Jill (Sophie's mom)
