Jay is a very professional and highly motivated Nanny, My 2 year old son loved playing with her, she spent time with him running in our backyard, danced with him and even read him many books. My son started playing with her on the first day that we hired her. My son was so exhausted by playing and running in the backyard with her that he went straight to sleep. Upon interviewing her we found out that she strictly follows the COVID-19 guidelines and doesn't go out socializing, we wanted someone who follows all the COVID-19 related guidelines. She sang and read book for my son, We are very happy with her and will definitely hire her again when we need a babysitter.

Retired But Young RN

Responds within 4 hours
I currently hold an active RN license along with Basic Life Saving (CPR for health care providers), infection control and a child abuse identification certifications. I'm a local Wantagh the mom of 2 grown children of my own as well as 2 college age step children. Prior to becoming a nurse I worked in a nursery school, ran the pool, supervised the staff at the summer camp, was a lifeguard and also taught swimming lessons to babies as young as 3 months old. I have nannied for families with children ranging from newborn infants to preteens. However, I definitely consider myself to be a "baby person." To me there is no better or important job in the world than caring for and nurturing your baby. Im a happy, energetic person that loves to play and go on long walks and I like to think that I have just the right amount of "silly" and "serious" to get along with most children. I'd love the opportunity to chat more to determine if we are a good fit for one another. All the best, Terri

She conducts herself professionally, respects confidentiality, and is able to connect with everyone. She has a friendly, glowing personality on top of being accountable, professional, and highly motivated. She is also highly educated as an RN. Her medical acumen is invaluable. Once she was able to dislodge a foreign body from our youngest daughter's mouth during a choking episode. She simply is irreplaceable! I sincerely hope that you are quick to give her a position, as her warmth, attentive care, and inviting personality will be sure to endear her to you. Please do not hesitate to contact me by phone or email if you'd like any additional information. I'd be happy to discuss. Sincerely, Saumil P
