Meet Shayna

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

I have been working with children over the last decade. I have worked in after care facilities, as a nanny, and as a babysitter. Majority of the families that I began sitting for, I still have contact with. I am looking for that in the next family I sit for, not just a position but a connection. I lived in Texas over 3 years now and I work as an Elementary School Reading Teacher.   I am CPR/First Aid certified, and I have my own transportation. I am looking for regular sitting opportunities and hope that I can be the sitter that meets your family's needs.

As a parent of two active sons. Ms. Shayna is reliable patient and tough. My sons are known to try a person's patience but Ms. Shayna does not back down from a challenge of a naughty child. She is firm but caring and knows how to handle moody children. She even knew how to pick a lock when my son became defiant and locked hinself in the bedroom because he didn't want to go to summer camp She has my sons respect and they treat her like an Aunt. Thank you, Ms. Shayna for helping me with my sons you are greatly appreciated.

Shayna is like family to us. She began watching my older son just weeks after he was born and now he is four! When Shayna arrives at the house there is a calm that cannot be matched. She is a natural with the children, and you would be lucky to have her in your lives!
