Simona’s Bio

I am a nanny because I love children. I began working as a nanny 10 years ago, starting as a mother's helper, and progressing to babysitting for families in my neighborhood. My family also raised guide dogs, so I grew up training and caring for 4 dogs in the household. In middle school I moved and babysat regularly for one family, as well as referred families. During this time I also volunteered every Sunday at the West Vancouver SPCA, helping care for the dogs and cats there and at the front desk with adopting families.
I moved again in high school neat a golf resort called Predator Ridge. There I managed a log cabin café for visiting guest's children to play, read and socialize, and as a receptionist at the gym and swimming pool. The resort also referred me to visiting guests and local families with my information as a babysitter, and so I worked for many families and children of all ages. After graduation, I moved to New York where I was self employed in fashion and as a writer. I also continued to nanny for one family during my 3 years there. I moved to Seattle 2 years ago for college and to be near my family. I still work as a self employed writer during my free time.
Since I have recently finished my credits I am now available full-time as a nanny and babysitter. I am nurturing and helping children and families brings me joy and satisfaction. I engage with children and infants in learning, playing with toys and games, reading stories, going to parks and initiating activities, and providing love and attention. I am experienced cooking for families, such as preparing breast milk or formula, pureeing foods for infants, preparing snacks, baking and making lunches and dinners. I am helpful with cleaning and errands, organized, diligent and responsible.

Let me start out saying that Simona has proven adequate dealing with my child and the other 5 year old in my nany share. However she has been inflexible with the two moms in the nanny share while we ironed out the kinks. She has been rigid, uncooperative, and inflexible in her approach to the parents and often butted heads with me (who hired her and arranged for a nanny share) as we were trying to meet the needs of both of the families. Simona quit our nanny share with less than 1 hour before the start of the day. Both families were ready to start the day but we had no opportunity to find a replacement. Nor did we see this comming. This shows that she lacks maturity and experience. Simona was adament that she didn"t care if she left us without a sitter, It was NOT her problem. I would not reccommend her for any job in the future until she proved she was more mature to handle ALL the responsibility that goes into being a sitter/nanny.
sincerely.
