"We’ve worked with Joell in different capacities for many years! She was a nanny of a friend of ours, and we used her for babysitting. Then she nannied for us for a time, and then we went back to using her as a babysitter. She is kind and helpful, straightforward, and extremely competent. She is obviously a child care professional, which I love. I have twin boys and Joell has cared for them as babies all the way up through pre-school age.

"Abigail walked into my household on day 1 with such a calming and nurturing presence. She made my kids feel safe and encouraged learning while maintaining a playful behavior. My oldest daughter saw Abigail as a big sister figure and if it weren’t for my kids growing up so fast, we’d still have her around everyday. Can’t recommend a better nanny!"
