After reviewing Kate's credentials and having a phone interview with her, I decided to bring Kate into my home for a formal interview.

Kate is very warm and articulate and has an innate love for children. She seemed very honest and trustworthy, and someone that I could depend on.

Although we decided to choose another nanny to fill the position, Kate was in the final running and I believe she would be an asset to any family.

She agreed to work full time but later turned us down after we did not agree to her bringing her child to our house.
