Marcela’s Bio

I am 33 years old. I am from Colombia so I speak spanish fluently. I came to USA as an Aupair in 2007 and since then I have been working with kids. I have experience with newborns, toddlers and kids. I really love to be around kids because they teach me and remind me how simple is life in general. I have a bachelor degree in Business Administration and this also help me to teach kids in a very pragmatic and organize manner so I think that having rules is very important...and kids love it!. I have been working for different families and also worked for a Montessori school as an assistant teacher . I can provide you excellent references. I am a CPR and First Aid Certified from American Red Cross.

Marcela is an excellent caregiver that I highly recommend. She has been caring for our 16 mo. son for almost a year and we couldn't be more pleased. She has a high energy level, always on time, willingly gives a report at the end of the day and our son loves her. Please feel free to contact me for a reference. We are giving up our Friday slot due to a change in my work schedule only. Nancy

Marcela Diaz worked for us for nearly 1 year taking care of our 2 ½ year-old son. My wife and I consider our choice of caregiver to be the most important decision in our life, and we could not have asked for a better partner. Words cannot capture the strength of our endorsement for Marcela as an employee, caregiver, and friend. We are relocating to the West coast, and the thought of leaving Marcela is the most painful element of this decision. We love Marcela like a family member; we trust her completely with the well-being of our son; and we will miss her dearly. I truly believe that our son’s development has accelerated because of Marcela, and that we are better parents for having known her.

While Marcela’s strengths are numerous, I have listed several of those that stand out most. First of all, Marcela has a heart of gold and it shines through in all of her interactions with us. My son loves playing with Marcela and views her as an unwavering source of security. Marcela is an active caregiver, and constantly engages with Jack rather than simply watching over him. Marcela is also vigilant about safety. Whether it is exercising caution in the house, on the playground, or in the car, my son’s safety is always paramount. My wife and I never doubted that our son was safe with Marcela. Finally, Marcela is absolutely reliable and professional. She was never late, despite an early start at 7:45, and while sick days are certainly understandable, she never used one. She was also considerate in giving us several months of notice before taking vacation days.

Once again, please consider this an unqualified endorsement of Marcela. We were privileged to have shared one year with her, and only wish that we could bring her with us to the West Coast. While everybody’s needs are different, if they are at all similar to ours, I encourage you to hire her before somebody else does. We cannot imagine a more loving and responsible caregiver, and we interviewed dozens.

If you have any questions about Marcela, we would be happy to speak with you further. Please feel free to get in touch with us through Marcela.

Sincerely,
Mark & Katie

- Mark H.
