Meet Ellen

Hello! I am a 35-year-old career nanny & postpartum Doula (Bastyr University Certified). My care philosophy is rooted in the Reggio & Attachment theories. I find joy helping foster a love of reading, art, music & nature through self exploration & child driven, place based, learning. I am kind, fair, responsible, reliable & a master at singing silly songs while pretending to be an elephant. I am an excellent cook, love to be in the kitchen, & have extensive household management experience. I am a person who sees what needs to be done & does it without the need for hand-holding. My husband & I are rafters & I play bluegrass fiddle. I have experience with preemies & special needs babies, excellent references & 15 years of experience in childcare as well as teaching. Happy to send along my resume, reference list, childcare philosophy & answer any questions. Hoping for 2-3 days a week. Willing to travel as far south as Everett & North to Bellingham for the right family.

Ellen has been caring for my two boys, ages 4 and 6, for over three years. She is an amazing nanny. She is so caring and nurturing, but also able to set boundaries and maintain discipline with our kids. She is always planning fun indoor and outdoor activities, and also finds time to help with household chores. Ellen is dependable, organized, dedicated to her job, very punctual, and always comes to our home with a smile.
