Jenny’s Bio

Hi there! If you are reading this then you are like me and have a busy life. I am a 31 year old mom of the most well behaved 7 year old little man and 10 year old girl. I am currently home for the Summer taking a much needed break from a fast paced working environment in healthcare. I have spent the last 10 years dedicating myself to a hospital setting. I am taking classes as a nursing student this Summer, I volunteer at my sons school teaching art classes as well as volunteer at the Windham public library for art lessons in the Summer. We are an active family, no dogs or cats but I love them both. We have lots of fish! We love swimming, camping, hiking, biking, playing outside, music! Let me know if this sounds like something that would work for you.

Babysitting Experience - Excellent

I hired Jenny to babysit my two children (ages 6 and 3) for a one-time event while we were on vacation in South Portland. We live in San Diego, CA. My husband and I went to an all day Saturday wedding in July, and the kids were with Jenny for about 9 hours. It was unfortunately a rainy Saturday too!

Since I had never met Jenny before and we were from out of town, I asked if we could come over the day before so my children could meet her and her family, and hopefully make the babysitting experience more comfortable for all. Jenny quickly agreed to this and I appreciated that she was so willing to help.

My children's time with Jenny and her children was great. We didn't get back until late evening and I could tell by how my kiddos greeted me that they had a super fun and happy day. My son truly enjoyed hanging out with Jenny's kind son, and my daughter continues to talk about Jenny's sweet daughter. Now when my daughter finds new friends in book, they take on the name of Jenny's daughter!

My son is in remission from ALL (leukemia) and was on a 5 day steroid pulse during this time. Jenny had to give him his evening pill dose. Her nursing background and familiarity with the situation made me all the more confident that she could handle the medicine stuff, and the erratic, emotional, sometimes rather difficult behavior of a child on steroids. She was very comfortable with my concerns, which made me feel all the more comfortable leaving them with someone they had never met before for such a long time.

While this was only a one-time situation, Jenny just made everything easy. We had a great experience with her and would call her again in a heartbeat if we only lived a little closer!
