Meet Amanda

I am a fun, energetic, caring, and nurturing person with great interpersonal skills and a natural affinity towards children with extensive experience in caring for special needs, twins, and infants (2 weeks) up to school age children (late teens).

I believe the best gift any parent can bestow upon their children is a healthy and supportive environment to grow in. I find my naturally adaptive and easygoing disposition and a healthy dose of structure support fostering just such an environment.

I am a fun, energetic, caring, and nurturing person with great interpersonal skills and a natural affinity towards children with extensive experience in caring for special needs, twins, and infants (2 weeks) up to school age children (late teens).

I believe the best gift any parent can bestow upon their children is a healthy and supportive environment to grow in. I find my naturally adaptive and easygoing disposition and a healthy dose of structure support fostering just such an environment.

I enjoy traveling, spending numerous hours outdoors, reading, and playing sports. Puzzles fascinate me and I love the corner pieces. In Monopoly I simply must be the shoe, and I could spend hours engrossed in arts and crafts. I love animals and get along with both cats and dogs. I also happen to adore Harry Potter (no judging!) and have a tendency to find the magic in everyday life.

I currently work as an after school nanny for darling twin kindergarten boys but would love to be able to help out a few hours during the mornings, date nights, and weekends should the right opportunity arise.

Darnetha M. says:
Amanda interviewed for our summer position. She was extremely personable and quickly developed a rapport with the children. She is very intelligent and asked smart questions. Her experience with and knowledge of children really showed. Sadly, her rate was higher than what we could offer. Anyone would be luck to have her.

Amanda S. responds:
Thank you, Darnetha and Tasha, for the kind words. I truly enjoyed meeting with you and the lovely and adorably inseparable cousins. I'm saddened that I'll never get to hear the litte song that was being practiced in the other room. Wish you all the best, and should you ever have need, I'm simply a phone call away. <3
Kelly G. says:
Amanda was our night nanny for my daughter from April of 2009 when we brought her home after a three months stay in the hospital as she was born prematurely until end of June 2011. My husband travels a lot and we had just moved to New York at the time, and I was searching for someone to help me with caring for her at nights since she was a very troubled baby and hardly ever slept for more than two consecutive...
