Mirella’s Bio

Hi! My name is Mirella and I absolutely love children! I've been working with them for more than 17 years now. I graduated from Columbia College studying music business management and marketing, as well as early childhood education. I also have a master's degree in internet marketing. I have extensive experience and education in child development that I am constantly continuing. I have been a babysitter, professional nanny, daycare provider, nursery attendant, camp counselor, tutor, teacher, etc. I am bilingual in English and Spanish, as well as cpr and first aid trained and certified. I participated in the 2012 national nanny training day and happiest baby on the block certifications. I'm an active member of the International Nanny Association. I am a newborn care specialist. I love encouraging language, music, and reading. I also love to do outdoor activities and arts & crafts. Most importantly, I truly adore children! I treat each child as if they are my own to give them the best love and care possible. More than anything, I love being a positive and loving influence on their development and in their lives. I have had various background checks done and have excellent references. Please contact me if you think I may be a great fit for your family. Thank you for your time. I look forward to hearing from you soon!

Mirella has been great with my 7 month old daughter! My daughter has been difficult to leave with sitters, but she loves Mirella! Mirella reads her books, sings songs with her and makes her laugh. She has always been prompt and reliable. We look forward to continuing to work with her!
