I have over twenty years of hands-on childcare experience
and have recently received my postpartum certification
from Bastyr University to become a postpartum doula.
Having been involved in childcare in the Seattle area
for so long, I've been able to learn about Seattle's best
maternal care and resources; from pediatricians and OBGYNS
to the best preschools and daycares to restaurants that
are truly kid-friendly instead of kid-tolerant.
I can help with anything from some housekeeping to
lactation advice to spa recommendations to when you
need to begin thinking about applying to preschool.
I'm extremely passionate about providing the best support
and education possible and helping to make those first
weeks following birth comfortable, enjoyable, and
I'm looking forward to meeting you and the new addition
to your family. I have several references, which you
can find below.
"Wendy started out as our nanny but has become a member of our family. She is trustworthy, loyal, honest, hard working, and her work is always top notch. She takes initiative but always in a way that is aligned with our family values. Wendy has a very natural way with kids. My girls adore her and look up to her so much. She is always patient and kind with them but understands the importance of setting boundaries. I know I can always rely on Wendy. It is very hard to express in words the tremendous impact Wendy has had on our family. Anyone who has the opportunity to have Wendy on their team is so lucky."

"Wendy earned my trust from day one with her incredibly strong work ethic, genuine love for children and positive attitude. She responds quickly and is a clear communicator, and is so organized she even helps me keep my schedule straight. My children adore her and are thrilled when she walks in the door; she is patient and they can tell she genuinely wants to spend time with them. She is the first call I make when I need someone to care for my children, and I've referred her to many of my friends."

"Wendy is hard working, dependable, willing to go the extra mile, and takes pride in her work. She is early and/or on time every day, willing to stay extra when-ever needed, and took initiative. To me, initiative is one of the most valuable and over-looked skills in today's marketplace. Skills and experience can be gained, but it is tough to replicate initiative. Finally, Wendy is trustworthy, honest, dependable, and loyal."
— Rob, Wallingford
"Wendy is a hardworking, focused, positive professional with a go-getter attitude and a drive to learn and improve. I've known her for several years, and have been consistently impressed with her ability to do anything she sets her mind to, as well has her focus on personal development and professional challenge. She incredibly personable, up for anything, and brings a great attitude and focus to all she does."

"Wendy has been an extremely reliable, trustworthy partner in helping me take care of my children. She's worked with my family off and on for several years and I couldn't do it without her."
