Trust-Lined Babysitter with impeccable references. I have a cheerful sunny UP attitude and  a great calming energy to bring into your home.  I have lots of hands on experience(25 years) with  families and family dynamics . I am CPR/first aid certified. I am a member of the national association of nannies. I have my own new model 5 star safety rated  vehicle and a perfect driving record. One of my greatest joys is to work with and be around children and I truly LOVE my work.I am Eco friendly and socially conscious.What I like most about babysitting is watching the children grow physically ,mentally, emotionally, spiritually and knowing that I took part along with their parents in setting a foundation for their lives.I have experience with high profile families,domestic and international travel.Letters of recommendation and a resume are available upon request.

Not only do I think Laura is great so does my baby and the dog! We are all very comfortable and it took no time to get adjusted to what could have been a scary experience in trying to find a reliable sitter/nanny. I love the one on one time she provides and her genuine concern for my infant. She's committed to her position and amazingly attentive. We are very lucky to have her in out lives!
