Creative & Consistent Helper

Hello! Since the beginning of the pandemic, I have provided engaging, consistent childcare to families in need of extra support. Preceding my work as a nanny, I worked in a myriad of youth development positions. Specifically, I served as an ABA therapist for children living with Autism, a 1-on-1 aid in special needs classrooms, a horticultural/wilderness guide for struggling teens, and summer camp counselor, and a private cello teacher. In all of my work, I bring a creative passion and a patient, grounded perspective that inspires growth and joy. As a nanny, I highly value open and supportive communication with parents and guardians. In regards to supporting household needs, I am dedicated to maintaining a clean space and providing healthy, beautiful meals to those in my care (I love getting the kids involved in cooking projects, too!). I hope that you will consider the opportunity to work together, and I look forward to connecting soon. Warmly, Vlasis

"V" was a wonderful addition to our family and we now consider him part of our extended care network. He is a skilled communicator, patient, empathetic and creative. He really invested in getting to know our son's unique personality and kept a regular, open line of communication with us so we were always united in reinforcing positive behavior and family values. V is great at organizing age-appropriate projects that help children feel ownership while they develop skills. I'm happy to be a reference for any family considering whether to hire V.
