Education professional in the middle of career changing.

I'm looking for a family I can mesh well with and can build a professional foundation on honesty, open communication, respect, and teamwork. I'm a very warm, kind, creative, nurturing and loving individual and I can't wait to meet you and your little(s)! CPR/First Aid certified.

We loved having Elissa as our sitter before she went to work at a camp. We would highly reccommend her.

Phenominal care-taker! I have nothing but kind, glowing words to share about Elissa's personality & skills in caring for my two children. She is definitely "wise beyond her years". Normally, seniors in high school or even college age sitters can be easily distracted as well as not have the "experience" necessary to be a well-rounded sitter. However, this is SO not the case when it comes to Elissa! She has great instincts on what children need, has the initiative to get things done beyond just watching your children, is creative, fun, thoughtful and cares about them as if they were her own family. I always trusted her instincts and she always communicated openly to me about everything that took place while I was gone. Even while she was watching them if she had a question or wanted to ensure what she was doing was alright she would simply call to discuss. I am only sad that we will have to go back to the "drawing board" and locate another great sitter as Elissa has departed for college. I know whomever gets to know and utilize Elissa while she is in another state for college will be thrilled with her expertise! We hope to catch up with her while she is on break.
