Jennifer’s Bio

I have over twenty years of experience caring for children, varying from infants to adolescents, including twins and triplets. I worked as a school bus driver for a private school in McLean, VA on and off for over ten years. I majored in psychology and interned at the Department of Juvenile Justice and the Department of Social Services, Child Protective Services Unit while attending Mary Washington College. Additionally, I have worked with and counseled at-risk youth and their families. I am currently pursuing a graduate degree in Counseling. I have a 10 year old daughter, who has a sweet, gentle and out going demeanor, which I am currently homeschooling. I am looking for a family open to having her join me, while caring for their child(ren). I have an extensive background check/child abuse check, finger printing, and driving record check performed annually due to the nature of my employment, in addition I have random drug screenings throughout the school year. I have excellent references, which speak for itself. Needless to say, I have a HEART to work with children and impact our world's future!

Jennifer is a well organized, competent, prepared, friendly person. She is wonderful with children and I would highly recommend her for any position

Jennifer is a phenomenal sitter. We felt nothing but confidence every minute our 3-month old son was in her care. She was friendly, attentive and diligent with our son. She did bring her daughter and that posed no issues and she managed them both as a priority. I agree that 5-stars are not enough to describe her.

Jennifer did a great job with my two children. Her own daughter was an added bonus as my daughter felt it was more of a play date.

Jennifer was the epitome of professional. She kept the boys engaged and active while she babysat for them. She is on time and always friendly. Having her daughter with her was an added bonus that gave my children a play buddy. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a babysitter.

Jennifer is a great babysitter! She is a pleasure to work with and very responsible. We use Jennifer on a fairly regular basis and she has always been great. Oh, let me not forget her beautiful daughter Emma. She is a great little helper for our 6 month old son.

Jennifer was our first ever babysitter! While we were a little nervous about our "first time", Jennifer did a great job with our kids and provided us with a detailed account of the afternoon when we returned. Have and will continue to highly recommend her to our friends.
