Heather’s Bio

 
 
PROS:
**I have over eighteen years of childcare experience, fifteen of them as a professional nanny.
 
**I have impeccable references, as well as clean driving and criminal records.
 
**I have experience with every age and stage of childhood development, from newborn to teens.
 
**I have taken first aid and CPR courses, and I have good instincts.
 
**I have my own transportation, and weather permitting, I will arrive on time.
 
**I am not afraid to clean up around your house. I will load the dishwasher, scrub the pots and pans, and wipe off the counter with a smile on my face. I'm happy to spruce up any areas where your children and I have been playing. I don't mind washing or folding your laundry. I can pick up your dry-cleaning, go grocery shopping, drop something at the post office, or pick the dog up from the groomer. Catch me on the right day, and you might even be able to talk me into washing your car.
 
**I love doing arts and craft projects, singing, dancing, reading, playing musical instruments (badly), and going on outings.
 
**I encourage creative growth through music, art, theatre-puppetry, and play-acting.
 
**I have a blackbelt in Hide-And-Go-Seek.
 
**I can make soap bubbles bigger than your head.
 
**Follow-The-Leader, Freeze, and Stuffed Animal Parade are among my favorite pastimes.
 
**I can recite by heart "Goodnight Moon", "Madeline", and many of Sandra Boynton's gems including--but not limited to--"Oh My Oh My Oh Dinosaurs!"
 
**I can do many voices, including Blue's Clues/Dora the Explorer/Sesame Street Alumni (specializing in Elmo), not to mention many Simpson's characters (for older kids, if appropriate) and the cast of Napoleon Dynamite, gosh!
 
**If your little girl likes nail polish, I might as well tell you that I am the nail polish queen! I have oodles of colors, and I'm getting pretty good at making funky patterns...just let me know in advance, so I can bring my nail polish kit.
 
**I am a huge fan of Laurie Berkner, and am prone to belting out "Victor Vito" at any given moment. (Depending on your opinion of my singing voice, this may not be a "Pro".)
 
**I love pets, all kinds of pets, and I am more than happy to include your animals in my repertoire of affection...sometimes, to excess. (See "Cons".)
 
**In addition to my child care skills, I have been told that I can organize one mean garage sale. (The last sale I helped organize raked in over $700!)
 
 
CONS:
**I can't drive a stick shift. To be fair, I once drove from California to Minnesota in a truck with a stick shift, but I never got the hang of starting or stopping. I kept making the truck turn off, much to the disgruntlement of my travel companion.
 
**I might feed your dog table scraps, because I have an insane need to make all dogs love me. I don't know why. If there are serious dietary issues, please let me know, and I'll do my best to curb my compulsion for dog popularity in favor of canine health.
 
**I am relatively expensive. I know, I know. But at this moment you must ask yourself if this is really the area in your life where you want to be a penny-pincher. Do you actually want to bargain hunt when it comes to the well-being and safety of your child? Hey, I'm all about clipping coupons, and buy-one-get-one-free deals, but let's save that for frozen pizzas and movie rentals. This is your family. I have found that the cliche "you get what you pay for" is almost always true, with the exception of the ticket price for anything featuring Rob Schneider. I am no Rob Schneider. I am Heather Hansen, and I guarantee that I am worth every penny.

Warm and nurturing w/a touch of silly! Our kids loved Heather and want her back! Will definitely plan on calling her again.

Heather is great! Smart, fun and really 'in-tune' with my 16 month old - I would highly recommend her!

Heather was great! She watched our girls from 8 am until 7 pm, and took great care of them. The girls loved her - She started playing with them right away, and even had them bathed and in their PJs when we got home. We will certainly ask her sit for us again.

Heather was great with our 15 mo. old daughter. She took to her right away.

I was immediately confident and comfortable leaving my four kids in Heather's care! She is very capable and lots of fun...my kids have not stopped talking about her!!

Heather is a delight, we are so pleased with how wonderfully she interacts with our son! We can count on her to give our child excellent care, and we always know he will have fun while we are gone. We look forward to having her sit for us!

Heather is terrific! The kids (four-yr-old boy, two-yr-old girl) look forward to her arrival and her bag of tricks (markers, bubbles, etc.), and barely notice when I leave. She is fun, but also level-headed and confident, like when my little one woke up from her nap with a fever. I was glad to have her at home that day!

Heather was wonderful with our 10-month old boy! He took to her right away, and she made us feel very comfortable. In addition, she was so easy to get a hold of, very prompt and professional, and just an all-around treat!

Heather is wonderful. All four of my children thought she was great. We are a very active family with lots of animals, and she fit right in!
Thank!

When I called one of Heather's references, I heard "Grab her!". Now I know what that mother meant. Heather is fabulous. She is responsible, trusting, and such a fun person. My daughter took to her right away and thrived being in her care. She is also very patient and loving to my dogs. Heather is a top-notch nanny and a gift to any family. I highly recommend her.
