Hi. We’ve worked on and off with Isabelle for years. My 11-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son love having Isabelle as a sitter. She always has a plan for the kids. Every day there is a new adventure and they are almost never sitting around the house. They go swimming, to movies and parks. I have worked with a lot of nannies over the years and Isabelle is the best! - Suzanne Stevens
