Jenny’s Bio

Hello, my name is Jenny and I am 30 years old. I have my own transportation, am responsible, and truly enjoy the opportunity to care for children. I am completely dedicated to providing a fun, learning, and safe environment while parents are away.
Some of my past positions include Nanny, Preschool Teacher, Para Professional, Classroom Volunteer for kindergarten through school age children, Weekend & Ocassional Sitter, Private tutor in various subjects, Summer School Counselor, School Volunteer, Public School Tutor, and I also completed an internship with various Child Psychologists, Art Therapists, Social Workers, and other specialists in College. I have experience with a wide variety of ages varying from days old to 12 years old. I have had the opportunity to care for many different children of all ages, usually for an extended period of time. It brings me Joy to continue caring for children and helping them learn and become creative, strong, and educated individuals.
I'm currently transitioning from Minnesota back to Illinois to be closer to my family, continue my education, and would love to find another family to help!
Currently, I volunteer at a senior care center, work for a non-profit organization, am in school, and help care for my aging grandparents.
I am CPR certified, First Aid certified, I have a Fingerprint ID Card, and have certificates of educational and various children-related workshops. I have majored in Child Development, Psychology, and Education.
I have taught children Spanish and am completely fluent. I enjoy creating learning activities, am very organized, and love crafts & music.
I have helped children with various psychological and physical issues including deafness, blindness, Autism, Aspergers, and mental health issues including Depression, Anxiety, ADHD, Trauma, Ect. I am sensitive to families of all kinds and am happy to follow directions, routines, and anything else.
I also love nutrition, health, and cooking! I enjoy meal planning, making food from scratch and whole food. I would love to help with errands, shopping, laundry, and anything else that will make your life easier.
I love spending time with children and consider it a privilege. I'm so thankful for the opportunity to have been and still be a part of such wonderful families! Thank you for Considering me, I would love to have the opportunity for an interview!

Jenny is very experienced with children, and with infants. She is quiet and caring, and when she is with our son she is conscientious about making their time together a learning time. She offers to help in other areas (letting the dogs out, throwing laundry in) which I haven't taken her up on. But it's nice that she offers. I would highly recommend her.

Jenny is a wonderful sitter! She was so responsible and professional. She calmly dealt with the unexpected when my youngest got sick and my girls LOVED her. I highly recommend her!

Our 11-month-old daughter immediately warmed to Jenny, who was her first sitter outside of the family. Jenny seems to be really comfortable around kids, and she not only did a great job of entertaining and caring for Lucy, but she managed to keep the house clean while doing so (something that I have trouble doing)! She also left a note detailing what they did (play, eat, diaper change) while we were gone. We're very happy:)

Jenny came to our hotel room while we were in town for a wedding. She did an outstanding job. Very prompt and professional and sweet. If we make it back to MN, we'll definitely call her up again! Thanks again Jenny!

Jenny watched our 10 month old who always fusses before bed, and she got her down fast and quietly. We were impressed! Will hire her again no question. She's professional and sweet.

NO SHOW

Spent an hour talking with jenny and she asked really great questions and sounded interested. We set up a time for her to come meet the kids and do a working interview and then she did not show up-very disappointing!

Provider's Response

I'm so very sorry! I was hospitalized and became very ill. This has never happened and I feel very badly. I hope you found someone amazing.
