Although we opted to go with another candidate for our nanny-share position, we found Kristen to be INCREDIBLY qualified, confident and experienced with care of infant multiples. She will be a great fit for a family or a nanny-share position!
Kristen was great with my infant daughter, she was super interactive with her and always attempted to maintain our routine in my absence. She was always on time, even at a ridiculously early hour that I needed her to arrive. If we hadn't moved away, we would still use Kristen, our baby loved her and so did we!
