Gwendolyn’s Bio

First and for most, I am an active grandmother, who wants to help bring order to your life.  I have a BA in Psycholoy with an emphsis on child development.  In my past, I owned my own child care business for 15 years, was the Child Care Coordinator for the City and County of San Francisco for five years and I retired three years ago from my last job which was working as the Executive Director of a non-profit called Florence Crittenton Services where I supervised a staff of 20 who cared for 20 infants and 42 toddlers. 
I took early retirement so I could return to the individual care of families, looking for or needing a "grandmother" to support them as they raise their children.  In my past, I have helped raise over 150 children to adulthood.  I am proud to say I am in touch with over 50 of those youth adults today.   I recently completed the Dr. Berry Brazalton Touchpoint Training in Jan. 2009. This level of training was to deepen my understanding of child development and how to support children as they develop.
Everyone needs and wants a "grandmother" so here I am to care for you and your child(ren). My joy is to play with, read to and enjoy children.  That's what keeps me young. 
When I'm not working I love to travel.  My plan is to see the entire world. Todate, I have seen a quarter of it and have enjoyed meeting new friends along the way.

G mama was/is excellent! She has this very pleasantness about her yet she’s still very professional. I learned while she was working at our home that she truly cares for not just the children but the family in a whole. G mama sat for me once while my daughter was ill and kept me informed about everything while my daughter was in her care. Knowing that like any mother worries about there child while sick she called me to let me know of her fever, cough, and behavioral status. My daughter just loved G mama she felt as she was with her Nanna. I was very comfortable leaving my child with G mama even while she was sick. Another occasion I have a schedule/routine that I like to keep, G mama executed each task asked. I love G mama and will be using her in the future as well as recommending her to all our friends.

When we met G-mama for the first time she was friendly, warm, and caring. She brought her resume and references which was refreshing. When she babysat for us the first time she was punctual and immediately began interacting with our son. She is an excellent sitter and we look forward to having her watch our son again very soon!

We love G Mama!!!! She is a wonderful addition to our family as both a housekeeper and babysitter! She is very personable and always professional. We couldn't think of a more trustworthy person for both our house and our daughter. Our daughter loves her and they always have a great time when my husband and I go out on date nights. We will definitely miss her when we move in August.

G mama is an excellent child care provider. She is all ways on time, trustworthy and dependable. Her child care experience shows through her professionalism and sincerity. She aided me in potty training my two year old and nursing him back health after a bout of pneumonia. I love G Mama, she is truly an awesome sitter and most importantly my son loves her as well. When I come to pick him up it shows all over his face that he has had a great time and has been well taken care of....I totally recommend!!!

Gwen has been helping me for over a year now - and I have been very happy with her work! When we first met, I was impressed with how professional and prepared she was - and that impression has not waivered. I've also been super pleased by her reliability and regular communication. When she says she's going to do something - SHE DOES! She cleans my house every few weeks - and it's so nice to come home to a sparkling fresh environment. Thanks Gwen!

G-Mama is a professional babysitter. We have used her for the past year and she has never been one minute late past the time we asked her to arrive. She always confirms the appointment a day or so in advance to remind us of the day and time we requested.

We have used other babysitters, but my children prefer her. My husband and I like that she is willing to stay into the wee hours of the morning if we so desire, unlike other babysitters that would need to be home at a certain time. She is very flexible with the days and times she can babysit, whereas other sitters are restricted by their own schedules, children, jobs, pets, etc.

She always leaves the house in the same, if not better, condition than when we left it. Her extensive experience with children is evident when she babysits. You will not find a better sitter!

GMAMA was awesome with my 6 year old daughter. She was very helpful in texting me when she got my daughter off the bus, making sure she had healthy food to eat and homework done in time for bed. I would definately recommend her for all your needs. Look forward to her help while im still here for the next 4 years as long as she is around and willing!

AMAZING!!!

Gmama was an integral part of our lives for over two years when we lived in San Antonio. She watched our daughter for date nights every other weekend and after she put her to bed, would do light cleaning. She was an absolute joy to have in our home, our daughter loved spending time with her and we greatly appreciated her outgoing personality, dependability and sage advice. We miss her dearly and know that anyone that hires her will be as blessed as we were!
