I work in education because I love kids. I always encourage children I babysit to read, play games that engage their minds, use their imagination, and enjoy nature. I have been babysitting for twelve years and have learned how to care for an infant while taking care of the needs of the other children in a fun-filled environment. I have also cared for children with special needs and I am in tune with every child’s sensitivities. I have babysat, nannied, tutored, mentored, and taught children from infants to teenagers. Teaching pre-school through high-school has provided me with an understanding of current philosophies on child development as well as the experience to know that each child is different. Please contact me if you are interested!

Ellen was a great sitter for our pets. We have 3 dogs, and she had no problem with them. One of our dogs was on medication, and Ellen had no issues helping with that too. She also kept us up to date with photos of the dogs snuggling while we were away. It was great to know our dogs were getting hte love and attention they needed while we were away.

Working with Ellen was super simple. She made herself available to watch our 13yo cat and 8yo pitt bull and even modified her schedule when we needed to make an early departure. She sent pics of our pets while we were away to keep us up to date and, since she was staying at our place, we knew that the entire homestead was in reliable hands. We've already reserved her services for a longer vacation later in the summer and we're very pleased (and relieved) to have found such a great pet sitter.
