Mara is great my daughter warmed up to her right away she's flexible she stays in touch with me she even brought my daughter a toy on the first day I would definitely recommend her

Mara is professional and thorough. At our interview she asked a lot of really great questions trying to get to know our family and expectations. She has been easy to work with and my boys like her. She cleans up after herself and our boys while she's here and is eager to please.
