I have even organized play dates and birthday parties. I have even taken care of household chores and responsibilities. I am patient, loving, nurturing, honest, reliable, trustworthy, dependable, compassionate and fun. I am very engaging and love to plan and organize activities that will stimulate the child's physical, intellectual and social growth. I am a goal-oriented person with a good professional attitude and I am highly motivated. I am dedicated to my families! I give my full attention to the child at all times helping the children explore their individual interests and talents and independence and build self-esteem, all while building a strong relationship with everyone in the family based upon communication, mutual respect and trust.

Marwa H. says:
I contacted Vena based on the good reviews from care.com and on my own search. We talked over the phone and we decided a day for the interview to talk about the details. She seemed to understand my needs and the schedule I'm looking for. I found it very disappointing when she couldn't make it to our interview not just because of that because things can happen, but she is very unreliable and very hard to reach... More

Vena B. responds:
Marwa contacted me about an interview. I ran into car trouble (flat tire) the day of the interview so I contacted her ahead of time apologizing and asking could we possibly reschedule. I was not sure if I would be able to make our interview on time considering the time frame of getting a tow and my tire repaired so I thought that was best. She agreed. We then started to just communicate via phone text messaging.... More
Danielle C. says:
Vena started with us as a full time nanny about one year ago. She quickly became an integral part of our child's life and has really established herself as an important member of our family. While she is professional, flexible and trustworthy, her two major strengths lie in the fact that she is passionate about her job and has extensive experience taking care of children of all ages in her 27 short years....

Hannah K. says:
We were so lucky to have Vena care for my son for almost a year when I returned to work. She proved to be trustworthy, competent, and loving--very important characteristics for someone you are inviting into your home and who becomes like a member of the family. We knew we would eventually put our son into full-time day care, but we were so happy for that first year that he was able to stay at home with a regular... More

Olga F. says:
We interviewed Vena for a short term nanny position. I checked her references during the interview process and the families she worked with were very positive about her. Most importantly, they were very comfortable knowing that their children were safe in Vena's care. They stated that she learns very quickly and is very adaptable. Overall, she has great experience. We went with another candidate more for... More

Dominic G. says:
Hello - my wife and I met with Vena regarding a position we had available. Vena was very well prepared for our meeting. She brought all of the pertinent information with her when we met. Although we hired another child care professional, I was totally comfortable with Vena's ability to care for our child. I would certainly recommend Vena.

Lindsey T. says:
I held 3 interviews with Vena and was very impressed each time. She is outgoing, professional, friendly, knowledgable, and has a ton of experience. I would certainly be comfortable leaving my daughter with Vena. After a very difficult decision and a lot of back and forth between our top 2 nanny candidates, we ultimately chose someone that was referred by a friend. We wish Vena the best and know that she...

Dana B. says:
My husband and I were very impressed with Vena during her interview. She has many qualifications, including childcare certification, CPR certification, and a recent child abuse clearance. She brought all of her certificates with her in a folder to the interview and she also had many very excellent letters of recommendation with her. Her references are impeccable. We really had a hard decision in not hiring... More
