My family has had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Sharyn for about a year now. She babysits for my 3 kids ages 1-7. She is very experienced and thorough and able to hit the ground running with very little direction. She is very creative and often has different activities to stimulate and engage the kids. She prepares meals, cleans after kids (great to come home to a clean house!!) and leaves a log of the day after each shift. I'm very happy having her as our sitter and I highly recommend her. It look a while for us to find a sitter that we could trust and rely on. Having Ms. Ms. Sharyn as our babysitter has been a great asset to our family.

Miss Sharyn Has house sat and pet sat our three dogs on several occasions for us, ensuring our 3 dogs are fed and let out appropriately. She has stayed several days with our elementary aged children, when my husband and I have been on trips together, getting the kids to school and their various activities like soccer practice & games, dance classes and birthday parties, etc... While with our kids, she plays both board and electronic games and does various activities, like art projects, and takes them to the movies. She does all the above, along with working for us in the mornings during the school year. In the mornings, she starts a load of laundry, wakes the kids up in the morning, makes the kids breakfast and packs their school lunches and snacks. She oversees that the kids get dressed for school, has their school work/homework ready to go, and makes sure the kids perform general hygiene: brush hair and teeth, etc. before the bus. She finishes with washing the dishes, straightening up and wiping down the kitchen counters, putting the dogs away for the day and securing the house before she takes the kids to the school bus.

Sharyn has been with us since the start of the school year. She is wonderful with my 10 year old with ADHD, very patient. She has been very flexible and accommodating as work schedules have changed, and on vacation and sick days. She brought the kids gifts at Christmas and has taken them to the movies and done nails. She's also good with pets and a great laundry folder! Highly recommend!
