Hello! My name is Anna, I come from a large family, one of six. I have a degree in nutrition from Penn State University, also a former track and field athlete, current competitive Olympic weightlifter, and I love cooking. I have 2. 5 years of sitting experience. I've taken care of children from the ages of newborn-12. Tasks have included meal prep, bottle prep, playing in the pool, reading books, nap time, bed time, going on walks, arts and crafts, circle time, and much more. If you have any questions feel free to reach out!

Anna has been such a great addition to our family. My 2 year old boy has really taken to her. Since he has so much energy, she is able to match his & provide him with a full day of play. I work from home & she would take him to ride bikes in the yard, paint rocks, play in the sprinkler, or any activity I may have laid out for them that day. They have even done some art projects I have given to family as gifts! She can take the reigns & run with any task you give her! Anna also helps cook his lunch, clean up after, & make sure he is always in a dry diaper. She has great attention to him & it allows me to get lots of work done, be close by, & not have to worry. We have used her for date nights as well, & she has cooked him dinner, changed into his pajamas, & can even do the whole night time routine. I highly recommend her & would give her 6 stars if I could!
