Silvia’s Bio

Hi families!

I have been working as a full-time/part-time nanny & babysitter for various families for the past 8 years. I have had live-in & live-out positions, I have worked in several different kindergartens/ day care centers in Oslo, Norway. I am fluent in English, Swedish and I also speak Hungarian. I was an Au Pair for two years before attending college. I have an Associates degree in Fashion Design and Merchandising. I lived one year on the East Coast, 5 years in LA and moved to Portland in March, 2014. I have experience working with all ages, infants to teenagers. I have a current CPR certification, I have my own insured vehicle and a clean/good driving record.

I live in Buckman near Colonal Summers Park, I am looking for families nearby. I work as a personal chef, part time from my own home. I recently finished my first vegan ebook with recipes. I also have an Etsy Store where I sell greeting cards. I have a very flexible schedule, I am looking for either part time or full time. I truly enjoy working with children. I love meeting new people and connecting with new families.

I take my job (all my jobs actually) seriously, I believe it's important for children to have fun and learn at the same time. It is important to me to be a role model for your children and not just the average babysitter. I love to teach children new things, reading, arts & crafts. I enjoy playing with children, but I also encourage them to be independent and explore the world on their own (with me by their side, of course). I am a very happy, healthy and active person. I think it's important to have good communication, I always reply to messages and answer phone calls. I never cancel on work unless there's an emergency.

If you are looking for a positive, health-conscious, and mature, yet young woman to be a part of your family, I'd love to hear from you! Thank you so much for reading.

Silvia helped us full time with our two children, 7 and 2 years old and she did a fantastic job! She made sure to connect really quickly and effortlessly with the children, taking part in their games and engaging them in lots of various activities both inside and outside.

She was always on time, happy and interested. She was very concious of healthy eating for the kids and seemed to really enjoy outdoor activities. She took the children to the beach, they went hiking, they went to several different parks etc. and I always felt very safe with her driving the children. She also always left the house clean and went the extra mile to make sure everyone was happy and content.

Silvia is very responsible, a joy to have around the house and the children absolutely loved her! When we get back to LA we will, no doubt, ask her to help with our children again.
