Meet Fernanda

  • Speaks English, Portuguese, and Spanish

My name is Fernanda, from Rio de Janeiro - Brazil, 37 years old, married to my lovely husband James for 6 years and living in Chicago for 5 and a half years, and we have a dog named Rio. I graduated with a degree in Tourism & Hospitality in Brazil. Since moving to Chicago I realized my passion for cooking and created a food blog called Cozinha na Real which I am translating to English too (True Kitchen Blog - I also work as a volunteer once a week at CMSS (Chicago Methodist Senior Services) playing active games with the seniors. Besides all that, I have a strong interest in arts and crafts too. I love kids, always have, and I've been around them since I was a teenager. My father's side of the family has 70 people and counting ... that's right: 70 people! In Chicago my experience Read more has been working with children babysitting part time and as a temporary nanny for Brazilian friends who have moved to the suburbs or quit their job to stay home. I have great references. I am CPR and First Aid certified. I'm also familiar using cloth diapers for those parents who have this preference. I live on the lake in East Rogers Park and I would love to find something in Evanston or somewhere close to the Red Line including downtown Chicago. I'm getting my driver's license soon and I am willing to drive/commute depending on the job. My rate is $15/hr depending on the situation and number of children. Thank you so much for your time and consideration. Sincerely, Fernanda.
