We were lucky enough to have Ashley Smelser as a nanny for over two years (June 2012 - August 2012) until we moved from Chicago to Colorado. Ashley was referred to us by a close friend when her previous family also relocated away from Chicago. Ashley started with us when our daughter was four months old and was with us when our son was born in 2012. Ashley was very easy to employ. She enforced our rules, was prompt, and kept our children's things tidy and clean. We always found Ashley to be honest and with strong character integrity. She was flexible and willing to help beyond the norm such as accompanying us to Colorado during the move.

She always took excellent care of our children and loved them as if they were her own. Ashley has a background in early childhood education and leveraged that to suggest age appropriate activities and toys of our children. She loved getting out of the house with them and always wanted to take them to activities, on walks, to the park, and on play dates. As our daughter grew into a toddler, we witnessed the bond they shared. They were true companions; each morning our daughter would run to welcome her with pure delight. We loved having Ashley as part of our family and know others will feel the same.
