NANNY/FAMILY ASSISTANT/ HOUSE MANAGER Hi! I am a graduate from Seattle Pacific University and have been nannying, house managing, personal assisting, and working with kids for over eight years. Sometimes it is hard for a child when the parents are away. I am compassionate and want to make the child feel as safe and comfortable as possible. I love preparing creative activities for the children to do, playing games, singing songs, as well as helping them stay active. I am comfortable with changing diapers and handling unexpected issues that may arise. Some of the tasks I have been responsible for are preparing meals, grocery shopping, cleaning, and organizing. I have also been a house manager and love making people's lives easier. As a house manager I keep the house organized and in order. My goal is to make your daily transition from work to home blissfully easy. I take the details from your home responsibilities off your plate so you can spend your time focused on the things you love.

Lindsey is an excellent nanny and assistant. She was with us before the pandemic and assisted with setting up our new apartment and purchasing items we needed-from bedding to patio furniture. She took care of all our grocery shopping and other errands, did the laundry, and kept our apartment spotless. She takes initiative and anticipates what we need and independently does it! She kept our refrigerator and pantry stocked, prepped food and made delicious home cooked meals. I had absolute faith in her ability to do whatever task or project I gave her. My 4-year-old daughter adored her, and I had complete trust in Lindsey to provide excellent care. During the pandemic she also took on the challenge of tutoring/homeschooling my 4-year-old, in addition to keeping our household running. She continued to do all our shopping and diligently disinfected everything that came into our house. In addition to being extremely capable, she is kind, positive and self-assured. I highly recommend Lindsey to any family.

Hello! I am a reliable, energetic, creative, and caring individual with experience nannying for families, tutoring elementary aged children, assisting in classrooms and working with large groups of children in the arts. I have 8 years of experience working with children ages 5-17. I am very comfortable engaging in and planning creative and sports oriented activities with children, as well as tutoring and/or creating lesson plans. I am a detail oriented person who excels at arranging and maintaining activity, extracurricular, and transportation schedules. I have experience in ensuring food safety for nut allergies and Celiac Disease conditions and, generally, preparing balanced, nutritional meals. I have taken Early Childhood Studies coursework and feel that this aids in caring for children. My diverse background in childcare has led me to create safe, fun, educational/creative environments for children of all ages.

Mara is awesome! She was our after school/summer nanny from August 2017 to July 2018. At the time my kids were 6 and 9 yrs old. Duties included picking the kids up from school, homework help, taking the kids to/from various sports activities and dinner prep. She also helped us with weekend sitting/date nights and early morning shifts when my husband was out of the country traveling. Mara is extremely reliable, responsible, patient, kind...I can't say enough good things about her! I highly recommend Mara for a full time/part time nanny position! She'll become part of the family :)
