Jennifer’s Bio

I am a very "young at heart" 45(ish), non-smoking, single mother of one, 20yr. old University of Washington Junior (Advanced-Placement High School Graduate, with The President's Award for Educational Excellence, an Illinois State Scholar, and Member of The National Honor Society). I have over 25 years of sitting/nanny experience having watched all ages - newborn through teen - including special needs, and up to four children at a time. I was certified in CPR & First Aid when I worked as a Girl Scout Camp Counselor.  I also love animals, so have no problems with pets - cats or dogs.

I grew up on the NW side of Chicago, graduated with honors from Mother Guerin Girls High School in River Grove, IL (now Guerin Prep.), & attended several different colleges (including early childhood education coursework). I love children & always want them in my life... They keep me young!

I am extremely flexible with days & hours, and don't have many restrictions there.  My schedule is currently wide open, and I am able to work any "shift" - including overnights a (single evening or extended stay). I do have a safe vehicle, and valid Driver's License; I have no problem with pick-ups & drop-offs, or errand running.

Please feel free to contact me to discuss your needs, my experience, & my reference contact information. Thank you in advance, for your consideration.

Jennifer has been our regular sitter for about two months and we couldn't be happier. Jennifer is extremely flexible, very responsive, and really seems to enjoy being around our 1 year old son. Most importantly, we trust her and know our son is happy in her care.
