Sara’s Bio

I have spent the last decade as a professional nanny. I've come to a new place in life and am looking to expand my horizons into companion care. I am a generally easy going person, I try to enjoy a slow and peaceful life. I believe people and relationships are very important. I enjoy knitting, walking in nature, movies of all types and learning/teaching craft techniques.

Sara was a part of our family for nine months, starting when our twin boys were 4-months old. We are going to miss her terribly but she needs full-time and we need part-time

Our boys lit up the minute Sara walked in the door. She was very calm in the midst of synchronized crying and poop catastrophes. Sara gently and respectfully helped us figure out what in the world we were supposed to be doing and what our options were. She did not take it personally when, on the few occasions, her advice was not selected and had no problem doing things in the manner we wanted. Sara was fully engaged with the boys: creative playing, reading, feeding, going on walks. She also drove the boys to story-time and music classes on occasion. Our boys were premature and one had extensive issues feeding - taking up to an hour at times each feed. She was instrumental in helping him advance and giving us a much needed rest. And she would text us sweet photos/videos of the boys! :)

We have no reservations recommending Sara to another family. Good luck for all!

After making arrangements one month in advance she canceled via a text message minutes before she was due to arrive. Further, she made no attempt to remedy the situation by suggesting a backup or offering services at a reduced rate in the future.

Sara was our full-time nanny for our 3-month-old daughter. I really can't say enough good things about her. My husband and I work out of our homes so were able to see firsthand how good she was with our daughter. Sara was able to soothe her and keep her from crying when very few people could. She also has the patience of the saint! We can tell our daughter loves Sara and will miss seeing her everyday. Unfortunately, we are moving to another city or else I could see Sara with us for a long time. You can feel good about hiring Sara to care for your children.
