Jennifer A.

Jennifer was quick to respond to my messages and came to spend the day with our kids. She made sure my 1.5 yo was comfortable and safe, and that he always had someone to play with. She oversaw his meals and also watched over my 7mo old. We had a great day with Jennifer and would hire her again!
