Dionne is fabulous! She clicked right away with our son. I always feel comfortable knowing that she is there to care for him. I don't know where she gets all of her energy!

I interviewed Dionne for a position and found her to be delightful. She was polite, professional and attentive to my son. She returned my calls promptly and showed up on time to our interview. Watching her interact in a gentle manner with her daughter put my mind at ease. My plans for returning to school have been put on hold so I no longer have the need for a sitter. But I am going to keep Dionne in mind for the future because she seemed trustworthy and I would feel completely comfortable leaving my 9-month old in her care. Dionne, thanks for your time!

We were so lucky to find Dionne. We came to Chicago from Los Angeles not knowing anyone and very stressed about finding our first sitter. We hit the jackpot. She was so caring and responsible, and we felt completely at ease leaving her alone with our 6 month old daughter. She and her daughter Michelle are lovely people and we'll miss them both, as we are returning to California.

Dionne has been absolutely wonderful with my son. I feel completely comfortable and relaxed when I know that she is babysitting!
