Cheryl’s Bio

*** I am currently looking for a part-time nanny position year-round, my earliest start date is at the end of June 2016 ***

Beginning in late June 2016 (on or about the 24th) I am looking for a position for Monday-Friday year-round for the hours of 2pm-6pm. I am flexible to my end time and I'm willing to work as late as 9pm/9:30pm on weekdays on which I work the following morning. If I am not working the following morning I am willing to work as late as needed.

I am currently working in a daycare and as a babysitter. I graduated from George Mason University in May 2015, I majored in Community Health with a concentration in Health Education. I maintained a 3. 2 GPA while putting myself through school by working full-time as a nanny. From age 18-21 I worked with Fairfax County Public Libraries. From ages 13-17 I worked at various animal hospitals as a groomer, dog walker, veterinary assistant and receptionist. At age 12 I started my own pet sitting business and managed 15+ clients regularly in my neighborhood. I have been a formal babysitter since May 2008. I have 13,530+ hours of experience (as of 3/20/2016). In my free time I enjoy being outdoors on walks and appreciating nature. I also am very creative and like to write, read and draw. My rate for is $16. 00 per hour, since I anticipate paying taxes with your family. If two families want to have their children at the same house while I babysit, the families will pay individually. If your plans change and you no longer need me as your babysitter, please provide 24 hours notice. Thank you.

Cheryl did a great job watching my two young children. She was prompt and very professional. She has a gentle, friendly manner and my kids had a great time with her. I will use Cheryl again and would recommend her to other parents.

Cheryl has been babysitting for my son since the spring of 2009. She came twice, sometimes three times a week for several hours. Some of the time I was working from home when Cheryl was here and I got to see her interact with my son quite a bit. My son loves her and was also happy to see her arrive and sad to see her go. She is very gentle, very patient and kind towards him and really liked to do activities with him such as taking him for walks, playing outside, etc. Cheryl is also very professional and has excellent professional boundaries. I highly recommend her.

Cheryl has been babysitting for my son since about January 2009 and she is so great with him. She is very easy to talk to and communicate about instructions/needs. I have complete trust in her abilities and have passed her name onto all of my friends as a great sitter.

Cheryl has been babysitting for us since May 2009. Our three-year-old daughter loves her and considers time with Cheryl to be a special treat. Over the summer, Cheryl would sit for us for 6 or 7 hours at a time, and there was never had any trouble with dinner or bedtimes. We now have another baby and won't hesitate to engage Cheryl to look after both children. She is always very professional with us and very engaging with our daughter. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.

Cheryl has worked for our family for about four months now, and we've got her booked for the next 6 months, if that says anything! We loved having Cheryl with our infant before our older child got out of school this spring, and now that summer's here, our older child enjoys every day that she gets to spend with Cheryl, greeting her at the door with hugs and kisses. While the baby naps, they enjoy lots of crafty projects together, and it seems like my daughter always has fun.

Cheryl is wonderful -- conscientious with both children and specific household requirements, and I'm very happy to serve as a reference for her!

Cheryl started babysitting our daughter (then 9 months old) in Sept. 2009. She babysat in the afternoons a few days a week for four months. I worked from home most of the time she was here and always found her interactions with my daughter to be gentle and respectful. Her communication is great, she asks appropriate questions, takes well to feedback and direction, and takes her job seriously. Since then, she has babysat on and off and she recently stayed with my daughter (now 18 mos.) three days/nights while my husband and I went to the West coast for a wedding. She didn't mind (and even appreciated!) the 8-page document I created for her in preparation for the trip! She put me at ease and it was a great experience for all of us. My daughter loves it when Cheryl comes to babysit and we do too!

Cheryl did a fantastic job with our newborn twins. She sent text updates to their mom throughout the night and had a play-by-play written out for us to look over when I got home. Couldn't recommend her more highly. Your kids will be in good hands.

Cheryl was amazing! She watched my two girls (aged 2 yr and 8 mos) while my husband and I attended a wedding. On the day of when I started to get worried about making it to the church on time she even was able to arrive 30 minutes early on short notice! The girls loved her and the house was even cleaner when we got home than when we left! We will DEFINATELY be calling her again.
