Hi I'm Rachel! I have 5 years of nanny experience off and on. My most recent was where I took care of the sweetest little 3-year-old girl full time and her two older brothers part time. Unfortunately I moved back to Michigan and had to part ways with the family. I am a responsible, attentive and caring person who loves children! I have a spotless record, clean driving record and a reliable car. I am certified in CPR, I have lifeguard experience and am very energetic. I provide excellent child care along with helping out around the home. Cooking, cleaning, laundry, grocery shopping along with taking her brothers to and from school along with all of their extra activities were also part of my daily duties. Anything else you would like to know please feel free to contact me. I can also provide outstanding references. And I love all animals!!!
Background Check
Reviewed by Rebecca S. 5/5 stars
Rachel (or Ray), as we affectionately called her, was our nanny for 2 years for our youngest, M. She came on after we had a prior nanny situation that hadn't worked out well for us and really saved us! She would take M. out for nature walks, park trips and always had fun, educational activities for her to be involved with. She often helped out by picking up our youngest 2 boys from school and helped them get started on homework. She lovingly and patiently potty trained our daughter too which took a lot of pressure off of us as we were building our new business. Ray is loving, patient, tender and firm but fun. My kids enjoyed her dog, Neli, when she brought her, too. Overall, she is a wonderful person with a heart of gold and true integrity. We were really sad to see her go when she moved back to her home state. Otherwise, I believe she'd still be with us.
