"Gwendolyn was very considerate of my preferences, ensuring to follow through on how I wanted things done for my son. She was quick to respond to texts I sent throughout the day, always responding positively and kindly. She gave thorough updates at the end of the day on how my sons day went. She confidently watched two 1 year olds (nanny share) simultaneously, and did not get overwhelmed by my sons separation anxiety and crying. She has good communication skills, conveying in advance any schedule needs or changes."

Hello, my name is Mikayla! I have over five years of experience working with children of all ages. I babysat throughout majority of my high school career and nannied for wonderful families afterwards.

Having first-hand experience in the infant and toddler rooms for the past year and a half, I’m confident in my approach. When I’m not in school or working, I create and design sustainable clothing, paint, and garden. I look forward to hearing from you!

A little bit about me…

Hi, I'm Maddy! I grew up in foster care till I was 8 & then was adopted into a big family (I'm an aunt of over 16 nieces & nephews). I have worked as a caretaker/nanny for children with behavioral issues/disabilities. I am very big on spending time outdoors & doing activities that keep my body healthy such as running or MMA class which is also a work ethic I apply when coming to care for children as well! even if it's just 20 minutes a day outdoors do a lot of good for the kiddos. I am a very clean and organized person so you would never have to worry about coming home to toys laying everywhere ( please do understand I am not a maid so I will not be doing every household chore). I'm bilingual as well ( English & Spanish ) so I like to teach the kids a few phrases or works to help them to learn Spanish as well.
