To whom it may concern,
         This is a letter of recommendation for Sareen (Michelle) Rasband, who worked for our family in 2009 and 2010.  She is an extraordinarily responsible person, and went far beyond the call of duty in caring for our mother, Julia, who passed away this year.  Julia had Alzheimer's disease, and required not only physical care of all her needs, but also psychological care.  Sareen always treated Julia with respect, patience and even humor.  She was pregnant during much of the time she worked for us, but we could always count on her to be at work on time and to bring her wonderful attitude.  She prepared meals, cleaned house, bathed Julia, took care of her, even slept next to her for many nights.  Sareen works hard and does not complain. She welcomes challenges and takes things in stride. I have only the highest regard for her work ethic.  She is honest, intelligent and has good common sense.  We often dropped in on her, since we lived close by, and we could tell Julia really liked being with Sareen.  (This was not always the case with other caregivers.)  If you have any questions, please feel free to call me or my husband John here in Santa Cruz, California.  Our number is(831) 469-3288.  Our e-mail

Letter of recommendation, reference, and appreciation for
Michelle Sareen Rasband
January 13, 2011
Sareen has spent a time period living with us, as our Nanny, helper, friend, and inspirer.
Her responsibilities with us, are very much so at the highest comparable level of mothering, and/or lead parent figure while I am away. Often I will travel, and Sareen will be left for time periods spanning from 2-5 days with my son.  In order for me to feel comfortable allowing this to happen, Sareen first demonstrated her consistent reliability, direct communication, safety and household responsibility, and willingness to build an affectionate, guiding, parent-like relationship with my son.
At the time, my 6 year old son, Gabriel grew to love and trust Sareen, quickly.  He not only enjoyed spending time with her as his Nanny , but also expressed a lot of interest in experiencing her at his level – a playmate, and a friend he could talk to.
I fully trust her capability to match me and my devotion and presence as a parent – and after spending much time with her, I have learned that not only is she capable – but she whole heartedly assumes this position with us.
I consider any family to have the experienceof Sareen and her beautiful baby, Crystara, very fortunate.
She brings the fulfillment of a childcare provider/mothers helper, but additionally is a genuinely kind, open hearted, motivated person creating positive change in many lives.
Other notes..  She is an excellent cook – her food is often at its creative and tasty peak when given the opportunity to prepare in an unstructured way .  She also does take direction in the kitchen very well.  Sareen is an obvious loving and dedicated mother.  She is able to work, and care for her daughter simultaneously. 
Kind Regards, Aurora
