Meet Jennifer

I hold a master's degree in School Counseling. With the slow job market, I am enjoying being a nanny/babysitter and have continued it as a career. I have a strong interest and an abundance of experience with different types of children and all age groups. I have babysat for families all around the Chicago and Sarasota, FL, (I lived there for one year), areas both long term and short term. I have also helped out families who have visited Chicago on vacation, (staying in hotels and corporate housing), and have had great experiences from that.

Jenny sat for us 3 nights while we we're in Chicago last week. She was on time, very flexible, and my girls loved her. She has my highest recommendation and we'll definitely be calling her next time we're in the "Windy City".

Jenny took care of our 4-month old during a recent stay in Chicago for a wedding. She was very polite, willing to take care of him in our hotel, and he was well-fed and asleep when I got home. Thanks Jenny!

Jennifer cared for our 5 month old when we were in town on a trip. She was punctual and friendly. She seemed patient and great with the baby. When she arrived, the baby was upset, but Jennifer helped her calm down and they had a good afternoon. We are glad to have such wonderful care. Thanks Jennifer.

I hired Jenny to take care of my granddaughter for a wedding while we were in Chicago. She was outstanding. I didn't find out until the day before the wedding exactly what time we needed to be there. She was great to come an hour earlier than what I had originally told her and my 9 1/2 month old granddaughter was well taken care of in our hotel room. I would highly recommend her!

Lashawna S. says:
I asked Jenny to call my husband to make an appointment. She called him and the appointment was made. Unfortunately my lovely husband did not tell me about the appointment even after I asked him if she called and after later complaining about her not calling. So I ended up making a last minute appointment with another babysitter. At this point you can guess what happened, when the time came to babysit I had... More

Pam C. says:
Jenny sat for our 7-year-old at our hotel in Chicago while we were in town for a wedding. She has tons of energy and was happy to do whatever our daughter wanted to keep entertained. They went swimming (twice!) and walked to a McDonald's. Jenny communicated very well prior to the date that she sat for us, showed up on time, and had our daughter happily snoozing when we got back to the hotel. I would highly... More

Jill F. says:
Jenny is GREAT. She is very professional, always on time and very responsive to phone calls. I always feel like our 10 month old has all of her attention from the moment she walks in the door until the moment she leaves. She is comfortable taking care of all needs from dinner time, to bath time and nap time. She is highly recommended.
