Maile’s Bio



I am a USC graduate and career nanny from Hawaii who adores babies, has studied child development and psychology, and has cared for and helped to raise children from infancy. Through my childcare business that I ran for 8 years in Los Angeles, I have an abundance of experience with children of all ages, serving as everything from a full or part-time nanny to an occasional/date night/one-time sitter. I’ve traveled with families, stayed overnight at the families’ homes while the parents were away, nannied full-time out of my home (including keeping them overnight), been a night nanny for newborns/infants, have experience with mutiples, and have watched up to 6 children. I also have experience with high-profile families.

My past duties have included providing daily transportation to school, lessons, activities, practices and outings, providing and preparing meals, monitoring the children's health and hygiene (trimming nails and hair, baths, dispensing medicine, etc.), basic newborn/infant/toddler care (feedings, meals, naps, changing, cleaning supplies), stimulation, supervision, interactive/imaginary play, assisting in development (movement, crawling, walking, eating, teething, sleeping, coordination, sensory exploration, speaking skills), tutoring with homework, potty-training, encouraging reading, art, music and outdoor activities, supervising playground and pool time, caring for the children while they were sick, putting to bed, disciplining when necessary, light housekeeping (laundry, tidying bedrooms, living room, kitchen, play/eating areas), organizing/sorting toys and clothes, grocery shopping, running errands, maintaining a daily schedule and keeping a daily journal for infants/toddlers.

Although I love all ages, I say I specialize in infant/toddler care, only because I feel that those ages require more technical knowledge and experience. I'd love to help in any way I can, as I have extensive, hands-on knowledge about everything infant/toddler-related (I've used pretty much every brand of bottles, pacifiers, diapers, baby food, formula, slings, bath products, etc., and know everything there is to know about infant feedings, sleep coaching, learning curves and developmental stages.)

Maile has been our Godsend. We searched frantically for two months trying to find someone that we could trust to watch our six month old daughter, Sabrina. While there were many who looked good on paper, none really “clicked� with us…. Then we met Maile.

From our first phone conversation Maile completely put us at ease. She had the experience, the certifications, and the upbeat personality we were hoping for for our daughter. At our first meeting, Maile provided any and all information we could possibly need for references, recommendations, and reviews of her experiences. When she watches our daughter, she goes above and beyond by providing us with a detailed list at the end of the day – when, what and how much our daughter ate, when she slept, when Maile gave her a bath, what activities they did – I’ve even learned some things that I can do with our daughter thanks to those notes!

Our daughter has always cried whenever we left her with someone she wasn’t familiar with (including her own grandparents) – but from day one, Sabrina never cried when we left her with Maile. She loves Maile and has a wonderful time with her!

It’s always hard to leave your child with someone else – but I completely trust Maile with my daughter and I know that Sabrina is in good hands with her!! I am SOOO thankful we found her, and I hope Maile remains a part of our family for many years to come.

Maile is an amazing child care provider! She has a true love for children that is immediately evident the minute she interacts with your children. She's great with babies, automatically getting down on the floor and playing and then helping with bathing and night-time routines. My 1 year old hugged her good night the first time she met her! and my shy 8 year old son couldn't stop talking about how fun and nice ytqshe was. She is very attentive, loving, gentle, and playful not to mention organized, timely, and personable. She actually engaged in fun activities with my son the whole time she was over instead of just "watching" him. We feel so blessed to have found her and can't wait for her to babysit again. It's so comforting and exciting knowing that our children are being so well cared for when we are away from the house. She's WONDERFUL and we give her our highest recommendation.

- Beth B.

I'm so glad that I contacted Maile to babysit my 6 month old son. Maile is my very first babysitter and it is such a pleasure to have her look after my son. From the first time she interacted with my son, I can tell that she really adores babies; she has many ways to entertain my son, really experienced with babies, and she always tidy up the toys when my son is napping. My son always have a big smile on his face everytime he meets Maile. She's excellent in many ways, great personality, punctual or even arrive earlier, and very knowledgeable about babies. I highly recommended her as she's someone you can trust leaving your baby with.

I am very lucky to have found Maile and I give her my strongest recommendation.
I live in the Northeast, and recently visited the Pasadena area for a 1-week conference, traveling with my 3 months old baby boy and my 11 year old daughter. Maile's profile on Sittercity immediately caught my attention, I was very relieved when she gave availability to care for my children that week.
I was a bit nervous planning for childcare remotely, especially since the baby is so little and I had never left him alone with a babysitter before, but Maile understands the importance of reassuring parents, and in the weeks leading to the trip we spoke over the phone and corresponded several times. She had helpful suggestions for what to bring and planned various activities to do with both children. She also offered to procure baby gear for us to borrow (stroller, car seat, activity centers), which significantly eased our travel. We were staying in a hotel, and we did not have many things, but she was waiting there for us when we arrived, helped us settle in, and brought a welcome present, food, toys for the baby, games for my daughter and various other items. The baby was sick the first two days, with a cold and a fever, but she did not loose her cool. She procured medical contact information and monitored him carefully; she was cheerful and loving, and she got him to smile soon again. Maile obviously loves babies, it was a sad goodbye when we left.
She also was amazing with my pre-teen daughter: they played board games, worked on puzzles, talked about books and life and she got her to swim in the hotel pool and made her fun lunches and brought treats, which was so nice since we were away from home. When my daughter made a couple of friends her age at the hotel, she happily watched all of them, always cheerful and reassuring. I was worried my daughter would be bored during this trip, but instead she ended up having a great time.
Maile is also very neat and kept our room so well organized, which helped us feeling home away from home.
Traveling alone on business with two children can be overwhelming, but Maile has made the experience so much more pleasant! I am only sorry she lives so far away from us and we cannot have her with us regularly - we will miss her.

My daughter was visiting from out of town and Maile spent the day with my 9 month old granddaughter. She is a caring and capable sitter, well-versed in the world of infants. I was impressed with her overall knowledge and the fact that she provided a packet of info on her experience. Maile arrived on time equipped with toys she thought my granddaughter would enjoy (which she did). She followed my daughter's instructions to the letter. She was so sweet and gentle - my granddaughter simply loved her. We will definitely call Maile again.

- Laurie M.

Maile is our babysitter/back-up nanny, and she is just wonderful. We always feel like our baby is in such good hands, and Maile is so easy to deal with (punctual, responds to emails, etc.). She also has a really nice, positive energy, which we really appreciate!!

- Bethany K.

I cannot say enough good things about Maile. I was looking for an occasional sitter/nanny for my 10 1/2 month old son, and he had never spent more than three hours away from me, so i was very anxious and particular about whom I would trust with him. When Maile came over to meet him, she brought over a detailed resume and bio along with references so that i would be comfortable with her experience level. She also spent time talking with both my husband and me, as well as took her time getting to know my son. I felt that first meeting her primary concern was to make a connection with him, patiently and gently. I dropped him off at her home for his first full day with her, and her house was set-up well for in-home care. There is a big spacious room devoted solely for children to play, with plenty of toys to amuse babies of different ages, with a safety gate at the stairwell. There is a quiet comfortable place for him to nap, and she has a video monitor and noise soothers for naptime. She also has strollers and car seats (rear-facing and forward-facing). But most of all, my son was happy all day with her, and in great spirits when I picked him up. Maile gave me a full detailed report of his naps and his meals for the day. And during the day, she texted me photos of him playing and laughing. My husband and I, and definitely my son, are very fortunate to have found Maile.She has not only great knowledge and experience, but a patient, gentle way. I feel as if she cares for my son with as much care and concern that I do.

- Tess M.

Maile is the best caretaker and babysitter I could ever hope to find. She is caring, gentle, and extremely conscientious, and has a wonderful, calm and upbeat manner with our 18-month old daughter, Vivian. Apart from me and my husband, I can't think of anyone I would trust more to take care of our daughter. Maile always arrives early to babysitting jobs, with fun ideas about things she and Vivian can do. When I come home Vivian is always happy and the house neat and organized. I feel extremely lucky to have found Maile. She is more than a great babysitter - she is truly special!
