I am an experienced Caregiver who has cared for many children since my early teens. In between my business career, while living in Atlanta GA, I worked for several childcare agencies. I worked many overnight stays for parents that needed a well-earned, child-free vacation. During this time, I was responsible for meal preparation, bathing, transportation, light housekeeping, pet care, plant watering, and mail collection. In 2011, I joined Sittercity as a Caregiver in CT (my home state) and performed the same duties mentioned above. I worked from 2011 to 2013 when I moved to Springfield, MO. I am hoping to work part-time (with a 3-hour minimum). You can rest assured that your children will be safe with me. I am a trustworthy, gentle, detail-oriented person, who will pay absolute attention to your needs and requirements. Please call me if you'd like to interview me, as I feel this is beneficial Read more for both of us.

Joanie is very polite and organized. My son loves her and she was ready and willing to take care of all his needs. She is timely and very professional.

Joanie has babysat for my 4yo son and 2 yo daughter for about six months and she is wonderful! Everytime she arrives at our house she brings stickers or tattoos or balloons and unlike some babysitters, she really interacts with my children. She is very responsible and professional, always leaves the house immaculate and my children adore her!

Ilisa N.


You will not find a better babysitter than Joanie. She is reliable, responsible, kind and FUN. My kids loved being with her, and I loved feeling confident that they were well cared for in her trustworthy hands. A five star rating for sure.

Joanie was wonderful. This was the first time someone other than family watched our kids and she made the transition seamless. She was great with them and they enjoyed her. We will certainly use her again and would highly recommend her.

Joan is an excellent caretaker. She was great with my kids and I will definitely feel confident having her sit for us again.
