Alyssa was great help assisting me when I broke my ankle. She didn't hesitate to help chauffeuring, helping me with shopping, laundry and housekeeping tasks. She has a very positive attitude and is a pleasure to be around. I highly recommend her if you need help even if it was just for a short time like myself!

Alyssa has been terrific to work with. She is very dependable and communicative. She has vast experience with all types of kids and had done very well with my 2.5 yo. In a pinch she has proven to step up and help on very short notice.

My kids love Alyssa! She is really great with both kids and does an especially good job with my hyperactive child who other sitters have struggled with. She's very helpful with any chores I've needed her to do and she's always been friendly, courteous, and on time. We highly recommend her.

Things started out so right here. We met and made sure that our values fit together, that our expectations were similar. They were good for 2 times that Alyssa sat. We were very pleased. Then it fell apart. She did not show up for work, did not respond to texts or phone calls except once to say she'd had an accident. Weeks later nothing, been left high and dry repeatedly. We hope she's okay, but we're done and can't recommend.
