Brigitte’s Bio

I am a responsible, mature, flexible, highly adaptable and dependable woman with a natural instinct to care for and nurture children.  I have strong family values; respect other people and their property.  I understand the importance of having an honest, trustworthy person to care for what we value the most. I think and act with integrity at all times, follow the rules, will initiate new projects to organize/clean, etc. or will complete tasks as I've been instructed to.  I enjoy life, laughter and good, clean fun.
When I am responsible for caring for a child, that’s exactly what I do…I TAKE CARE OF THEM! I talk to them, play with them, help teach them through age-appropriate activities, read to them or have them read to me, play games (preferably, the non-digital, electronic kind), get active by kicking the soccer ball around together, dancing & singing to sing-a-long songs, doing puzzles or making crafts. Watching television is very rare with me around, unless it is a special part of a routine a parent has established.
From May 2010-June 2013, I was a full-time, live-in Nanny/House Manager for a single father with two beautiful little girls (ages 5 & 7, when I started. Now ages 9 & 10). For over 3 years, I worked extremely hard, made many sacrifices and worked extraordinarily long days to help their family become a healthy, happy, harmonious one.  As the primary female role-model in girls’ life, I am proud to say that they are doing very well.  They are well-adjusted, sociable, compassionate, active girls that are honor-roll students with perfect attendance. They are well-mannered, sensitive, kind, courteous, full of love and are an inspiration to me everyday. I am happy to know that we have accomplished exactly what I intended to do when I chose to come accept the position. Their family will soon become whole once again and their home will be filled with the love that every child needs to grow and become all that they can be.
This gives me the opportunity to find another fulfilling and rewarding (live-out) position with another family. I believe that honest, open-communication is essential for a successful relationship and only want to work with people that desire stability, structure, a peaceful environment and a healthy, happy, well-balanced life for everyone.

Brigitte is AMAZING! She deserves a very glowing review as she really helped us out of a bind when we were in desperate need of childcare for our 3 yr old and our 8 month old back in March. She was SO professional, organized, and detail oriented! And she is just absolutely fabulous with kids! Madison & Cooper loved her! I would highly recommend her to anyone in need of a nanny and/or babysitter! Thanks again! MacKenzie & Stephen Heard

Provider's Response

This is an EXTRAORDINARY family! The children are absolutely wonderful and a pleasure to care for, they are a true reflection of their kind,loving and encouraging Parents. Thus far, it has been my best experience ever, using the sittercity.com website to connect with child Care opportunities. They are my favorite family to work with and can't wait for them to return to Atlanta. -- Brigitte L.

Brigitte was very professional, arrived on time and jumped right in to care for my 2 two year olds (which is a big job). She provided confirmation the day before the appointment and follow up after which I really appreciate. She has a sweet nature and my children were smiling after spending the day with her.

- Holly I.

Provider's Response

Both of the children were full of energy, creativity and were absolutely wonderful. We had so much fun coloring, playing and reading that they were both tuckered out by the time Holly came home. I truly enjoyed caring for them. It was great experience and I look forward to having the opportunity again in the future.

Brigette is wonderful. She recently watched my 2 kids (and dogs) for an evening. She is fantastic with children. She definitely goes above and beyond- she cleaned our playroom and kitchen after the kids were in bed. She is very thorough, knowledgeable, experienced and responsible. We will definitely be using her again (soon:)).

Brigitte is a wonderful, mature, and dependable caregiver. She has watched our two kids ages 4 and 21 months and both the kids talked about her for days afterwards. She is a natural with children and definitely entertained my 4 year old who can get easily bored. Brigitte has gone above and beyond by doing the dishes and sweeping the floor without being asked. I also appreciate her detail-oriented nature when it comes to scheduling and recapping her time with the kids.

- Amy C.

Provider's Response

Amy and Sam are a happy, healthy, loving couple who have dedicated themselves to raising their children to be happy, healthy and loving individuals...and they truly are! Both of the children are smart & active. They love to play interactive, fun games of learning, they are incredibly sweet, well-mannered and are really thoughtful. Not only has it been my pleasure spending time with the children, but I am grateful for long-lasting relationship the whole family and I are building together.

Brigitte was professional from start to finish. Beginning from my first email interactions, I could feel the passion she has for her work. When she arrived at my home she got right down to my 2-year old son's level and began interacting with him. By the time I had shown her around, he had warmed right up and wanted to show her his trains. When I got home she provided a full recap and made me feel like I had never left. She is truly a wonderful childcare provider.

- Jaclyn G.

Provider's Response

Thanks to Jaclyn's outstanding ability to communicate, we made an instant connection on our first contact. We both felt so comfortable and confident in one another that the first time we met was the day I arrived to take care of her adorable son. Our instincts were right! Jaclyn is a delightful woman and a remarkable mom! Her son is a very happy boy that is full of energy! He loves trains, to play ball and would sing all of the sing-a-long songs with me. I am looking forward to seeing everyone again very soon!

Brigitte made my trip to Atlanta a success! She is a warm, bright, and energetic woman who took great pride in caring for my 21 month old son during a recent 5 day business trip to Atlanta. She brought age appropriate toys, books, puzzles and music to constantly entertain, stimulate and educate our son. He never looked back when I left each day and he loved Brigitte's warm demeanor. I would recommend Brigitte fully to anyone who is looking for a wonderful sitter for their child/children as she will look after them as if they are her own.

- Norris P.

Provider's Response

Not only did I have the honor of caring for Norris's son, who is an ABSOLUTE ANGEL, but I also had the distinct pleasure of being around a truly astounding family. I was quickly accepted by everyone as his Nanny and welcomed into their home. Everyone is so caring, kind, appreciative, warm and genuine. This was only my first week caring for her son, but a special bond was created between us and the whole family. I miss my little buddy already and hope that another opportunity to care for him will come along very soon!

Brigitte came over to help me take care of my son while I was working at home. She came in and took over right away. She was very nice and completely personable. My son really enjoyed her visit. Especially since he had her running around the yard with her pulling him in the wagon. Needless to say she was great and my son had a wonderful time. Also, I was very at ease know he was being taken care of by someone who so obviously took great pride in her job.

Brigitte was WONDERFUL to us. She was able to watch my son last minute and we felt VERY comfortable with her. She is unbelievably professional and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a sitter. I can't say enough good things about her. I can't wait to have her watch our son again. Thank you, Brigitte!!!!

- Emily H.

Provider's Response

Emily was in a tough bind, in need of someone experienced and trustworthy to watch over their son at the very last minute, when she called me at 8:30PM on Friday night. We were instantly able to communicate openly with one another, allowing both of us to feel comfortable and confident that I was the right person to help. I acted quickly and was able to arrive at her home in about 1 hour. She is a great lady and a wonderful mother. I'm really happy that everything worked out so perfectly and they were able to go out and enjoy a well-deserved, stress-free date night! I'm looking forward to seeing her family again very soon!

What an outstanding, professional and lovely babysitter! We just loved Brigitte and can't wait to have her watch our 22 month old again. Our son, who is usually very shy, warmed right up to her and didn't fuss, even as we left. She played with him the entire evening, read him books, and went above and beyond to make his first time with a new sitter easy and fun. She is such a thoughtful, caring person-she brought a ball and a foam plane for him to play with, sent me a picture of the two of them while we were out and recapped what they did when we got back. She is an excellent caregiver in all aspects. We feel so lucky to have found her!

- Gabrielle G.

Provider's Response

Gabrielle and her husband are truly wonderful people and fantastic parents to their healthy and happy toddler. I appreciate Gabrielle's detail-oriented, pro-active approach to finding the right person to care for their son. She did everything that every parent should do to ensure that I was exactly what they were looking for. Their devotion to raising him in the best possible manner, in a loving home, with strong family values SHINES brightly through their amazing little boy. He is such a smart, expressive, sweet, affectionate, fun-loving child! I genuinely enjoyed every moment I spent with him and feel it is a great privilege to be welcomed into their home and into their lives. I look forward to seeing the whole family again this week and in the future, for those much-needed 'date-nights'. I'm happy that Sittercity has helped all of us find a great match!

Brigitte did a wonderful job watching my two girls (10 & 9) while I was away at work. I had some contractors in my house who were working on other projects and I asked her to use her discretion to do whatever was necessary to make sure my girls had a great time. Brigitte spent some private time with them in their newly renovated room establishing a bond which was great. At some point after the noise got too loud she made the decision to get them out of there so they could relax a little more and that worked out well too.

Brigitte has a great personality and her enthusiasm for the role is obvious right from the start. She has a deep passion for this type of work and I'm thankful we had the opportunity to connect. I definitely plan to reach out to her the next time I need help!

Ms. Brigitte is wonderful. She is very enthusiastic, well organized, punctual, and most of all great with children. She came to help us with our 1.5 old sick girl and it took her 5 minutes to get a hug from a child that is usually shy and reserved. Our baby never cried when we left the home, just waved good buy and continued to play with Ms. B. Hope you will get a chance to meet Ms. Brigitte, since she is very sought after nanny and sitter.

Brigitte was excellent. She was above and beyond to help us out for a last minute event we needed to attend. She even went so far as to rearrange her schedule just to help us out. She showed up on time and the kids took to her immediately. She has a wonderful demeanor about her and is not only kind, calm, and lots of fun, but she does a great job of gently but firmly helping the children make sure they're following the rules, which I truly appreciated! She is definitely someone we will be hoping to have on a regular basis here at out house! Thank you so much Brigitte!!!!

Great find!

We've only met Brigitte at our interview, but we are excited to have her care for our 2 year old daughter. Our normally shy child, warmed to her immediately! She's a real professional, but still warm and fun enough to get down and play with our daughter and our pups. I know we're going to love working with her!
