Hello, My name is Ashley. I am currently looking for a full-time nannying position while I attend grad school this fall. I am working as a nanny share with a 15-month-old (started at 5-months) and a 13-month-old (started at 4-months). I am honored for the time I spent with both families and the opportunity to form a strong bond with them and build a well-rounded and communicative relationship. Although it was difficult to do many activities with the babies this past year due to COVID, I was determined to make life as fun as possible. I continued to be COVID conscious, to provide the safety of the babies and their families, as well as myself. I have done many activities with the babies including crafts, daily walks, outdoor time, preparing and serving meals, diaper changes, reading books, assisting parents with sleep training or any other transitions, providing lots of snuggles, Read more and much more. I am sad about leaving the current babies, but I am looking forward to bring all of my love and experience to a new family. I am fully vaccinated and hope to work with a family who is fully vaccinated also. More about my background: I am from Florida and moved to Boston to attend Northeastern University where I received my Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology and completed a Co-op at The Italian Home for Children with youth who suffered from trauma. Some of my duties included cleaning, cooking, taking kids to school, going on trips, doing laundry, and much more. I also worked at Kids and Company Daycare as an assistant teacher with infants and toddlers ages 2-months to 5-years old, where I assisted with daily necessities such as feeding and diaper changes, as well as creating and implementing age-appropriate activities. I then babysat with Chime(SitterCity) and had an opportunity to work with many children of several age groups. I completed any tasks parents left for me while caring for their kids such as, playtime, feeding/cooking, or preparing for bedtime. After graduating I worked as a mental health specialist at Franciscan Children’s Hospital in a psychiatric unit with youths and adolescence ranging from ages 3 to 19 years old. I was required to clean, assist with laundry, maintain safety, advocate for children's needs, and de-escalated unsafe situations effectively while displaying empathy. I am happy to provide references along with my resume if you feel I can be a good fit for your family! I look forward to speaking with you all! - Ashley

Ashley has watched our daughter in a nanny share from 5 months to 17 months old. She is super communicative, caring and energetic! She loves our kids and I trust her absolutely.

Ashley was available on very short notice, answered my message promptly, showed up on time, and was great with my 2 year old. I would book again!

Ashley was great! She showed up early on short notice and immediately made my daughters feel comfortable. She handled everything great and provided updates throughout the evening. She even sent pictures across which made us feel much more comfortable. Thanks again, Ashley.

Ashley was wonderful! She arrived early and was energetic and patient in caring for my toddler. She also sent me pictures and updates during the sitting, which I really appreciated. I would definitely recommend her! Thanks!

Ashley babysat for my 2 girls and 4 more kids (out of town guests) last Saturday night and all I can say is that she was simply amazing! I must admit that we were a bit nervous when we booked her because it was not the most straight forward babysitting request due to the wide range of kids' ages (1,2 1/2, 4,6,9,11) but she nailed it! She arrived 10 minutes earlier (which was really nice!), with a big smile and full of energy... she even brought games with her and she kept all kids entertained and super happy! When we returned home, 4 hours later, the house was in perfect order (had cleaned up the mess) and all kids were sleeping like angels! The next morning the older kids reported to us how entertaining she was and said that they LOVED her and ... asked me ... "when can she come back for more babysitting?". I DEFINITELY recommend her! Thank you, Ashley!

My son loved Ashley right away! I was nervous because his separation anxiety is at an all time high, but he immediately felt comfortable with her. I recommend her highly and will definitely be booking her again.
