Maria’s Bio

Here is a little background info! :) I am a graduate from Edina High School (2007) in Minnesota. In high school I was in concert choir, captain of the varsity cheerleading squad and I played Lacrosse in the spring. I grew up in Minneapolis most of my life and now my family resides in Edina, MN.
I am a Loyola University Chicago alum (2011) with a BSN (Bachelors of Science in Nursing) degree. During my years at university, I interned at the Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, had nursing clinical experience in England, and did my Senior Internship the NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) at UICMC.
I have had much experience with children. In high school, I independently taught a Sunday school class of three and four year olds. I loved them all!!! While attending Loyola, I taught Sunday school as the Toddler Coordinator at Missoi Dei church in Wrigleyville. In the summer of 2008, I was a live in nanny in La Grange Park for five children, a nanny for a family with 2 children in Wicker Park, and a nanny for a family with one child in Jefferson Park. I have been babysitting since I was 14. I have babysat a minimum of 1 child to a maximum of 5 children. I have had much experience with infants, twins, little boys, and girls. I am always putting the children first when I work. I love them! :) When I was younger my parent’s dealt with many babysitters who would cancel last minute or leave the house a mess. From their example, I have learned that this is inexcusable. A babysitter should be on time, clean, and loving; I offer all these qualities. I find children to be such a wonderful gift. I love experiencing the everyday joy's a child brings to this world. REFERENCES ARE AVAIBLE UPON REQUEST
Currently, I am travel nursing as a labor and delivery nurse! Would love to hear from you :) Feel free to send me a message!

Maria is an excellent babysitter and I'm so glad we met her!

She is conscientious and thoughtful and displays a true love of kids. She has a wonderful spirit that is infectious and I felt completely comfortable leaving her with my 5-year-old daughter who had a wonderful time with her.

Maria is an educated, young woman who is clearly interested in doing her job well. She displays all the qualities anyone would love in a babysitter. I highly recommend her!!

Words cannot express how lucky our family feels to have met Maria. Our 4-1/2 year old has had a history of issues with separation anxiety, and Maria's genuine displays of love and caring have made our daughter's times with her ones that she now looks forward to with anticipation. We also have a 10 month old and Maria's skill at sharing her attention between our 2 little ones is simply amazing. We leave our girls in Maria's care with a complete sense of security that they are in great hands. We can only say that she has added to our home and we are truly fortunate to have her as part of our family.
