Hi, I'm Alán (pronounced uh-lan)! I am from the amazing city of Chicago. I am an outgoing child care provider for all ages. I've gone above and beyond my role as a babysitter with several years of experience. I am currently a student at the Xavier University of Louisiana majoring in biology on a pre-medical track with a minor in chemistry. I am pursuing a career as a doctor, specializing in obstetrics and gynecology. I have a passion in education and early childhood education, and of course, child care! I hope to work with you in the near future!

She is one of the most gentle souls, patient, and caring to my two young children. She speaks their language and they both warmed up to her witting the first few moments. Highly recommend.

Alán is amazing! We hired her to watch our seven month old for the two days between when we had to be back at work after winter break, but before our son's daycare started back up again. Due to us taking COVID precautions and being able to take a lot of family leave, Alán was actually our first ever babysitter. The experience could not have gone better. Alán is a great communicator, and it was very easy to work out the logistics. Given the world we live in now, we asked her to wear a mask while she was in our home, which she did, no problem at all. Alán showed up perfectly on time and our son (who as I mentioned is not used to babysitters) warmed up to her immediately. She kept him entertained all day with singing and games. She did a great job getting him his bottles, getting him down for a nap, etc. We were working from home during this time, but everything went smoothly and my husband and I were able to focus on our workday, knowing our son was in good hands. I know my son was a little fussy due to teething, but Alán was patient and able to distract him. Highly recommend Alán and so grateful she was available to help us out.

She pays attention to detail, cleans behind the children and is just all around sweet. She noticed my daughter loves everything Frozen and when she came back the next day, she brought a stuffed Olof which made my daughter’s day. She’s an angel and a baby whisper.

Alan is very courteous, professional and fun ! It was an absolute pleasure having her in our home and being with our children when work didn’t allow. I felt very confident in her abilities to ensure the health and safety of our children while we were away. She is very self motivated, flexible, and an effective communicator, and our children adore her. I would give her a 10/10!
