Nanny Patricia"We really enjoyed working with Patty. She took pride in caring for our daughter from 9mos old up to when she turned 2years old. She would take her on walks during the day and help her with her development skills by reading her books and helping her with puzzles and toys. She helped with organizing our daughters room, laundry and basic cleaning. We enjoyed Patty so much we still stay in touch."- Robbine
