Meet Vera

I am 52 years old, and together with my husband, we have raised 4 children, who are all grown and completely independent. I have a great love for children, and began my working career as a babysitter at the age of 14. I began to volunteer in the kindergarten class of my daughter's elementary school, from 1994-1995. The following year, the school district hired me as a special education paraprofessional, which allowed me to work with special education students in grades k-4. I remained in that position from 1995-1997, until I was needed to work full-time in our family... more
I am 52 years old, and together with my husband, we have raised 4 children, who are all grown and completely independent. I have a great love for children, and began my working career as a babysitter at the age of 14. I began to volunteer in the kindergarten class of my daughter's elementary school, from 1994-1995. The following year, the school district hired me as a special education paraprofessional, which allowed me to work with special education students in grades k-4. I remained in that position from 1995-1997, until I was needed to work full-time in our family business. While working in our family business, I also enjoyed working in a local bakery for 5 years. I also spent 1 year helping a man with cerebral palsy with his daily living needs in our community. I have enjoyed all of my jobs, and have gained so much knowledge in a variety of areas! However, my love and real joy was always in working with children. Now that I am able to work full-time outside of our family business again, I am hoping to return to my original job and purpose, as a babysitter/nanny within or near my own community.

Amy S. says:
Vera has cared for my son since he was 2 months old, and with all the recent snow days my 7 year old daughter has been home a lot too. My son gives a big toothless smile when he sees her, and Vera engages my daughter with all sorts of creative activities. Vera helps with various household tasks; from the laundry, to vacuuming, to preparing a delicious meal. In summary, she is creative, reliable and trustworthy. More

Sheri M. says:
We hired Vera for 2 days while we were in town for a conference. She was awesome! I loved that she said no technology. She kept our 5 year old busy with all sorts of hands on and learning activities! She even helped him get his "homework" done. Her hands on approach was refreshing and very much appreciated. Highly recommend Vera!

Hi Sheri, Thank you so much for your recommendation. After I know what he liked, it was easy to keep him busy, he is an awesome little guy. Vera
Stephen A. says:

Christina M. says:
Vera has been a great addition to our family. She has been doing light housework and taking care of our 5-year-old son twice a week and she always finds ways to entertain him. She brings games that are not just fun, but also help him learn. I have two older sons ages 9 and 11 who also get along great with Vera. She is reliable, kind and takes genuine interest in the children's well being. I highly recommend her! More

Albertina P. says:
I have hired Vera to babysit my 11 year old daughter & 3 year old grandchild on two occasions and have not been disappointed. Vera is very helpful & will get the kids food and put the 3 year old to bed for us. She arrives on time and always brings things for her and the kids to do together. Vera is kind and caring. She makes sure my 3 year old delayed grandchild gets her medication on time. The kids like her.... More

Lisa U. says:
Vera cares for my two young children (6 and 9) several days a week. The first day I knew she was a perfect fit for our family! Her performance has been exceptional and she frequently goes beyond the responsibility of her position and assists me wherever she can. She is very engaged and keeps the children active. My daughter adores Vera! She is very organized, and dependable. These characteristics and her love... More

Chris L. says:
Vera has done an excellent job with our 2 year old daughter. Recently, she was able to come on very short notice when our daughter woke up sick. Throughout the day, Vera did a good job of keeping my daughter engaged in constructive activities - which isn't always easy with a 2 year old. Vera was also able to stay a little later than original planned, which was much appreciated.

Paula H. says:
Vera has been nothing short of wonderful with my two young boys (6 and 9). My oldest son has ADHD and Vera has handled him very well. Both boys adore her and she helps out with household chores and makes sure the boys have a snack and do their homework. She has even prepared a couple of meals for the family which has been a wonderful help. Having Vera as part of our family has really helped in many ways and... More
