Meet Sophie

  • Comfortable with pets
  • Has a car

Hello! My name is Sophie and I have been a career nanny for 10 years. I have extensive experience with all ages, infant-teen. This includes work with multiples and twins. I have worked with high profile clients as well. I absolutely love what I do. I strive to be a great role model and teacher for children while taking care of them. When I'm not nannying, I'm spending time with my niece and nephews and writing music with my husband. We have just moved back to the Chicagoland area and I’m looking for a new position! I am expecting my first child at the beginning of June so I am looking for someone who would be comfortable with me bringing my baby to work as well.
