I have hired 4 nannies over the years and I can say, without hesitation, that Kristina was our top and favorite nanny of all! She is energetic (always outside with the kids and/or actively playing & teaching them), responsible and caring. She has treated my two sons (Jake, now 4 years old and Andrew, now 6 years old) like her own. Her daughter, Erika, who Kristina brings along to the job, is also a pleasure to be around. I will admit when I was in the process of hiring Kristina as our nanny about a year and a half ago, I was worried about how she would handle all 3 kids at once, but my concerns were alleviated after learning her approach to balance the care of her daughter with other’s children. She is fair and caring (treating each child the same and showing the same attention and concern for her daughter as my own sons). I quickly came to think of Kristina (& Erika) as part of our family after only a few short months. She has taught both of my sons’ responsibility, patience, and kindness. She is happy to assist with potty training, schoolwork, taking the kids to swimming lessons/other activities, and keeping the house tidy (dishes, laundry, vacuuming, etc). Kristina is also very communicative, calling or texting with important questions or to share a quick picture/video. But she also takes direction well too. At one point I was unable to receive her phone calls at work - so I asked her to text me instead, unless an emergency. She quickly adjusted to this approach. Jake is allergic to peanuts, pollen, and cats, and so she quickly became knowledgeable about how to keep him safe, how to use an epi pen and to learn the symptoms of a reaction. She did call me twice over the past year+ when she noticed redness or hives. Both times were luckily mild reactions and she administered Benadryl and watched him closely, keeping me informed. This put me at ease greatly. All in all, I would recommend Kristina to anyone. She is a sweet, considerate and compassionate caregiver!
