Lisa’s Bio

** Please see my reviews, and also ADDITIONAL REVIEWS  listed under my  BABYSITTER  profile**
Hi, my name is Lisa. I'm 54 (athletic), Chicago born, college educated, a nanny, musician, writer, artist, ex-office manager, and a very warm, responsible, energetic & fun woman.

NOTE: As of 09/17/14 I'm just starting a new Mon-Thurs daytime nanny job, so am now only available for occasional evening or Fri-Sat-Sun-Mon day or evening work.
From Feb-Sept 2009 I was a happy nanny to a beautiful, now 4-year-old girl named Maddy. (She was 3 months to 10 months old when I cared for her.)

Then for the past 4 years I've nannied for a brother-Niko and sister-Katia, now over 4.5 and 3.5 years old. (I started with Niko when he was 7 months and Katia when she was 2 months.) My work hours became inconsistent due to the parent's work schedule so I had to finally quit the job. I just (09/17/14) accepted a new job to nanny for a super cute 10-month-old girl, so can now only accept occasional night or weekend work; also Monday and Friday.

I'm middle child from a huge (7 kids) suburban family, and I LOVE children. I was an egg donor for my sister 12 years ago, although I never had any of my own. I get no greater joy than seeing grin on a child's face the first time they learn something new. I've been a professional nanny for many kids through sittercity the last six years, as well as babysitting for many, many kids, nephews, & siblings over the years. I'm experienced with newborn to school age kids. I believe I'm the Mary Poppins type, in a good way--I love to sing, dance, teach and do art projects with kids. I cure tantrums with laughter, listening and distraction. I'm on the sensitive side and am especially good with sensitive children.
Previously in my life I was office manager at a New York architect firm as well as being a part-time musician. I now prefer the company of children and love to see smiling little faces each day. Making children laugh and helping them learn is far more important to me than the corporate world. My English skills are excellent as well as my grammer. I know a tiny bit of Spanish as well.
I have a drivers license, a reliable new car if needed, & a perfect driving record. I'm also First Aid and infant to adult CPR certified. I don't mind light housecleaning, laundry, dog walking, etc. I'm really good at organizing and can shop for clothes and food.

I don't think I've ever heard my son giggle so much! Lisa was able to come in for a last minute mother's helper day for me, entertaining my 12 month old son while I got work done around the house. She arrived promptly and lost no time in captivating my son. The two of them had a grand ol' time and I know my son would love to see her back again.

Thanks so much, Lisa!
