Briette’s Bio

I'm an experienced former nanny in Chicago's Edgewater neighborhood, looking for extra work over the holidays. I'd be happy to help while your nanny is on vacation, to bridge the gap while you seek a more permanent childcare provider, or just so you can have an occasional night out.

I am an engaging, creative, and reliable babysitter. I like to keep active with the children in my care and I work hard to promote healthy development. I am also a calm and considerate employee who encourages a stress free household. I have excellent references which are available upon request.

I'm also a professional makeup artist with a degree in philosophy. In my free time I enjoy reading, volunteering at my local canine rescue, and DIY projects.

Please contact me to see if we could be a good fit. Thank you!

Briette was wonderful with our nine month old son, Parker!!! She is a very caring and loving person who was always on time and excited to spend time with our baby!!!! Every time I got home from work, they would be laughing and playing!!!! We were so very sad to see Brie go, but I have been fortunate to be able to now work from home. Thanks so much Brie for all the love and wonderful care you have given our little man!!! :D

Briette has cared for our daughter (Olivia) from the time she was 3 months old until now (currently 20 months), Monday thru Thursday each week. Olivia loves Brie and we have been very happy with her in our home and as a part of our family. We are moving out to the suburbs at the end of April 2010, ending our nanny arrangement. I would be happy to talk with anyone interested - she is a very loving, kind, and flexible person that will be a great addition to any family. We will miss her!

We have really enjoyed working with Briette as our nanny for the summer before we move out of the city to the suburbs. She's taken care of our two boys (2, 5), and my only regret is that we didn't meet her sooner! I would absolutely recommend her as a babysitter or nanny. Here are just a few of the qualities we've come to appreciate about Briette:
CREATIVE: She found inventive ways to keep my boys entertained, from chalk drawings at the park, to key art, and pretend camping in the basement.
CARING: When my youngest was upset watching us leave for work in the morning, she lovingly redirected him towards an activity he likes. She treated our boys with respect and kindness, but also made sure there were appropriate consequences if they were misbehaving.
RELIABLE: Briette was very considerate and respected our busy work schedules--always arriving on time and being flexible if we were running late. Any time she needed to take time off, we were given plenty of notice so we could accomodate her.
POSITIVE: She is a good-natured person who looks for the bright side of any situation, which is a great quality when you're taking care of kids. She doesn't get rattled by grumpiness or temper tantrums.
RESPONSIBLE: I felt great each day knowing that my boys were being cared for by Briette. She helped with occasional errands that she knew would help me out. She's a good problem solver. One time, when the camp bus left without my son--she figured out how to get him to the camp with little guidance from me, but kept me informed and made sure she got him to camp and still was on time to take my younger son to his gymnastics class!

Brie is an all-star sitter. I would highly recommend her to any parents seeking baby-sitters. She looked after our 8-month-old baby with care tenderness and care. She helped him adjust to life with mom at work. At the same time drove our 5-year-old to school and kept him entertained after school.

She is a very experienced sitter and in-tune with the needs of parents and children. We will hopefully be able to work with her in the future.

Brie has been our part-time nanny for our 3 1/2 year old twin boys for the last 17 months. Brie is responsible, nurturing, patient and kind. She is also very creative and attentive. She is always using her artistic skills to keep my boys busy with different craft projects. Brie does a great job fostering my kids' curiosity. Whether it is discussing the difference between cumulus and stratus clouds or talking about the countries of the world.

Brie is a fabulous caregiver who doesn't get fazed by temper tantrums or tirades! My boys have food allergies and Brie has handled that issue wonderfully.

My kids adore Brie. They count the number of bedtimes until she arrives. They wait by the window for her to arrive, and blow her kisses out the window when she leaves. She would be a wonderful addition to your family.
