Brenda was such an illuminating nanny to my 7 month old son at the time. She always came with a smile on her face and full of creativity to make her time with my son fun. Brenda was always on time & attended my son so wholeheartedly that created a special bond. Till this day he still asks for her & we miss her dearly. - Ashly
Sophia was the best baby sitter for our toddler. She is so sweet and energetic. Helped preparing healthy meals and she would come up with the funnest activities. She is very attentive. We miss her so much she was a true light in our lives such a positive and happy girl. We felt very secure leaving our son under her care. Anyone who hires her will be so lucky - Karla calvillo
She was great with my son. He was pretty young when she started working for us (6 months) so he was still learning how to communicate and she picked up on all his cues very quickly. She was always very calm, respectful, and level headed. She created a bond with my son and treated him like her own. If we didn’t have to move I would have loved to keep Sophia around. - Renee Lewin
