Hi! I am a Chicago Native from a large Irish/German family! I have devoted 10+ years working with children ( 5 families) ages 8 wks - 4 years, including multiples and premature births. My experience working with young children allows me to put to use my Early Childhood Development (ECD) background through all the milestones -- establishing routines, sleep training (for those who utilize), potty training, baby sign language, etc. My relationship with your child will reinforce and amplify the love and exceptional level of care received from the parents. Enriching unending activities (tummy time, reading, walks, classes, art projects.) will fill our days because I believe in the importance of education and socialization. My in-depth experiences enable me adapt to a variety of child rearing styles, which I implement based on your preference along with the best interest of the child. I'm adept at handling miscellaneous tasks ( dishes, Read more laundry, preparing homemade baby food, etc.), and keeping a log of daily activities ( via live App). I am the ideal hands-on, energetic, and reliable nanny with excellent recommendation/references! I’m looking for a full time position with an infant!

We interviewed Selena over the phone and in person. She was very caring and nurturing and our son took to her right away. She asked all the right questions and made us feel at ease. Her references were great too. Unfortunately, our needs changed and we did not proceed with the hiring process.

Selena watched our five-month old baby while we spent the night out for my wife's birthday. Selena was responsive, punctual, very well organized, and, most importantly, knew exactly how to care for our little one. We are thankful that we were able to hire Selena, and we would do so again.

After a last minute cancellation we were lucky to find Selena. Our daughter took to her right away and really enjoyed their time together. We greatly appreciated her professionalism, keeping us informed throughout the evening, and her complete competence in every aspect of caring for our child. We will absolutely work with her again!

My husband and I enthusiastically hired Selena in 2014 to care for our then 3-month-old son. She displayed vital traits we wanted in a nanny. She was an exemplary employee and nanny -- prompt, reliable, offered flexibility with hours, and a wonderful communicator. She was amazing with our son -- attentive, nurturing, patient, and much more. She worked with us on ways to reach his milestones, focused on playing and reading, and took him to age-appropriate outings. She helped with all the routine baby necessities ( sleep training, schedules..). She often went above her duties by helping with light housekeeping for the household. We found her to be a key asset to our family, and she made our lives easier! We employed Selena for 2.5 years. Her position ended when our childcare needs changed. We had a amazing experience, and recommend Selena to any family who wants an experienced and professional nanny!
