She is a super sweet girl, she was amazing with my three kids. She was their nanny for two years for unfortunately she moves to a different city. She was always on time and helped a lot - Rosy Romero

Laura S.

Laura is an excellent nanny because she is so reliable and trustworthy. She is always on-time and held to high responsibility. Extremely sweet and gives my husband and I this sense of relaxation when we leave our son with her because of her confidence. We are so happy to have found her and continue to have her help our family! - Alison

Kristina C. - Seeking Work in Inwood
Kristina C.

My son broke his leg and wasn't able to go to daycare. After another nanny cancelled on us Kristina swooped in to save the day. We are so lucky because she is the most positive, caring and supportive caregiver we've had. She even recognized and offered to help when I needed it (not related to childcare). We hope to continue to use Kristina whenever we need help. - Melissa
