Greetings! I have been caring for children for the past 14 years, both as a nanny and running my own daycare. I am seeking a long term nanny position with a warm, wonderful family.

My commitment is to the safety, nutrition and well being of the children in my care. It is one of the most important jobs, and I DO NOT take that lightly. Music and the arts are my passion. We sing, dance and play in a loving environment. No TV watching here! You can rest assured your child is in a secure, safe space. If you like, I also will share daily photo updates of your baby with you.

I provide a safe and stimulating environment which, through discovery and exploration, allows children to develop lifetime social, physical, emotional, and spiritual attitudes that lay a solid foundation for a socially responsible adulthood. The end result of such an education is an independent, self-confident, child with a love of learning. My reward is in knowing that I've made a difference in the lives of children.

Here are some recent client testimonials:

“I met Lisa few weeks before I had to go back to work. At that time my son was not even 3 months old. As a new mom, I was naturally very apprehensive about leaving my baby with a "stranger." Prior to meeting Lisa, we interviewed several nannies and while everyone was enthusiastic and willing to take care of our baby, deep inside we did not feel that the match was right. When I met with Lisa, however, she really put me at ease. Her gentle and caring demeanor were very convincing. Her many years of childcare experience made me at certain that my baby will be safe.

Lisa's philosophy of childcare agrees with my idea of raising a baby. My son follows a predictable schedule and seems to be thriving. She creates a stimulating environment for little ones, filled with creative activities such as puppet shows and story times.

Lisa is also very patient and understanding of the stresses and demands of a professionally busy young parent. I also love receiving text messages with little updates throughout the day and pictures of his lovely smiling face, which makes being apart from him a little easier. And, last but not least, shortly after starting to spend time with Lisa, my baby started sleeping through the night! That's priceless:) Thank you Lisa for taking wonderful care of my child!”
