Amanda’s Bio

I would like to think I am nuturing, upbeat, and attentive. My schedule is flexible. I was a swimmer for my entire  life and a lifeguard for a couple of summers. So I LOVE teaching swim lessons. I love out door sports which is why I really like to be outside as much as possible. I tend to take advantage of  what the city has to offer for children (lake, zoo, parks, children's museum, navy pier). I love working with kids and toddlers are my favorite age but have tons of new born experience. I have been cpr certified for years but luckily have never needed to preform it. Arts and crafts are my favorite because I loved to study art in school. I'm totally comfortable with driving in the city if need be but would rather not drive my own vehicle. I have stellar references and am looking forward to speaking with you!

Very caring and delightful nanny

We interviewed Amanda for our full-time nanny position and she was our top candidate. We found her personality to be very warm and delightful. Our infant son was instantly attracted to her. We called her references who testified that she was always very loving and caring to their son. Her reference said “I knew that my son was always in good hands and well cared for.” Sadly, we couldn’t select Amanda because she would have had a very far commute. However, I am confident some lucky family will scoop her up soon.

Lisa you are so sweet

Very friendly, but no follow-through

We interviewed Amanda and found her to be very friendly and personable. She seemed like she would be an energetic and fun part-time nanny for our children. Unfortunately, she never followed through on sending her references and was unresponsive to messages afterward. This delayed my critical nanny search by days while I was left wondering what happened with Amanda.

Provider's Response

Hi Amber! I didn't get a text from you asking for my references so I assumed you had found a candidate that lived closer to where you . Sometimes on an iphone I find when you get a message from someone that isn't your contacts it can go to "junk" and I do not know how to find them at that point or if there is a setting for that. I take a lot of pride on being energetic and try my best to be as personal since I work with kids and I love hearing that. Thank you!
