"I love children! I have been sitting for the last 15 years because I enjoy being around kids so much. I was a live-in nanny when I was in college for my undergraduate schooling & am the oldest of 6 myself, so I've been around kids a lot. I understand first-hand the importance of play-time & quality attention & stimulation vs. not.

I obtained my Executive Masters of Business Administration from CSU Sacramento in 2010, and my Bachelor of Science in Early Childhood Education in 2015. If interested, I can provide my professional resume as well, focused on Human Resources and Project Management.

I sat for several different families after they had posted jobs on sitter websites, & the majority of which I still sit for years later. From the amount of business I was getting, I decided it would be beneficial to my clients as well as to my growing family to open a daycare with open hours, a comfortable place to play and educational enrichment. I love that I have been able to watch the children I've come to love grow, & even after the parents might not need our services on a continual basis, they still call on us frequently for "date nights" & short notice-type situations. 

We own our home, built 6 years ago, in a newer quiet neighborhood. As per guidelines to obtain a state license, I & my staff are currently Infant/Child CPR & First Aid certified, have our Child Health and Safety Certifications, and have undergone criminal background and fingerprinting clearances. 

I also have a passion for the creative arts, which comes out in the playschool program my team and I have developed for the toddlers in our care. If interested in my work, you are welcome to visit my artist website at As a professional artist, I have successfully raised funds through donations and auction events through the Lymphoma & Leukemia Society of Sacramento. 

Please feel free to email, text or call us if you have any questions. If it’s during the day, a text works best for a quick response. Thanks for your time & consideration!"

"I have always been drawn to working with children. They are funny, entertaining, curious, enthusiastic, energetic, and just plain fun to be around. Their excitement and enthusiasm for life is contagious, and I am happier when I am with them. I initially began volunteering at a preschool and then decided to make caring for children my career. After completing my bachelor’s degree in 2011, I began working as a preschool teacher and childcare provider professionally and have been enjoying it ever since.

I consider working with children to be a great blessing in my life. It is a very rewarding job that requires me to use all of my talents and abilities. As I care for the children, I feel a deep sense of responsibility to help them reach their full potential. I especially love seeing the children’s individual personalities emerge as I interact with them and care for them."
