Shannon is a charming woman. Although we put our son to bed before we needed her to arrive , her warm, friendly nature as well as the many glowing reviews she receives made us feel secure and confident to have her sit for our son so my husband and I could have a date night.

Sittercity Parent

3/23/2016

Friendly, approachable and was flexible. I ran late and she was gracious enough to let herself in and make herself comfortable till I arrived with son. She jumped in immediately and played. He smiled so big, and had immediate laughs and giggles, he didn't even notice when I left. She's wonderful, and I hope to have her back!

Shannon S was wonderful! She was very sweet with my son (age 2) and while he is at the age where he is very wary of strangers he was even talking to her a little before bedtime. We put him down before we left for dinner as this was the first time he was meeting her so didn't want to totally freak him out. Shannon was so sweet, and we enjoyed chatting with her for the hour or so she was there before we left. When we came home, our living room looked amazing - she had tidied up on her own without us even asking and had washed and sterilized our son's milk bottles as well. Very proactive, nice, fun - we would absolutely book her again.
