Amanda’s Bio

My name is Amanda, but most of my kids call me Manda. I say "my kids" because once I start working for a family I fall in love everytime, and I consider them just as precious as my own would be if I had any. I am 31 years old, happily married, and used to own my own pet business. Every family brings its own unique contribution to the world in the form of a child and they all have their special quirks :)
 
I love my job, and I am looking to add date night or occasional evening/weekend care to my schedule. I have my own insured vehicle, a 2013 Ford Explorer that is my pride and joy, and am centrally located in downtown Seattle.

I have a 5 year old German Shepherd, a 2 year old rescue mutt, and two 11 year kittens that have the same status as my car, so pets are more than acceptable. I also volunteered for an animal shelter for a couple years- so I know a lot about difficult puppy personalities and behavior issues.
 
I am a very organized and flexible person who will do most anything to help you out. At a previous job I did most of the housework, while balancing the kids and their schedules. You could say I am seasoned at worst.
 
I love what I do! I get on the floor and play, love to read to kids, and have a knack for coming up with fun, creative, hilarious, and sometimes crazy games to play with children. I am very loyal and hardworking. I am a 4.0 student, so tutoring with homework is not a problem. I am also a musician and an athlete. So I can keep up with your kids and teach them the treble cleft.
 
I look forward to hearing from you and your family!

We are so thankful to have had Amanda watch our kids. My son instantly loved her, and it immediately made us feel comfortable. She was also very understanding when we ran a little late. My family recommends her!

Amanda is extremely professional and my kids loved her. My son ran to her and gave her a hug when he first met her! My children have asked about her. I highly recommend her. Thanks so much for everything Amanda. We will be in touch again!
