Hello. I am a 53 year old "mom" who raised 2 children in US, Japan and Taiwan. My children are done with college and they are working in US. Playing games, reading, doing creative arts/crafts and cooking with children are some of the things I enjoy very much. I am reliable, responsible and very loving. Pets are considered great additions in life, I love cooking healthy meals...I simply enjoy happy people and appreciate good family values.
I have been a nanny for various international families in the past. One of the family I have worked had 3 children. I started when the first daughter was 3 months old and helped the family with weekly babysitting, went on vacation to Hawaii and Cape Cod with them.

Mikka baby-sitted our 4 months daughter during the day. She played a lot with her and was very attentive, smiling and warmed. She wrote us a note with all the details. I recommend her!
Mikka took care of our one-year-old boy for a bit more than a week at our place. Everything went well, he really enjoyed his time with Mikka and he were looking at her when she was leaving in the evening!
Mikka brought him to the childplay room of our neighborhood, so that he could see and play with other children (We would have never heard about this place without her, great advantage to be Japanese!).
Her english is better than ours, so it's really convenient for communication and day sharing.
We strongly recommend Mikka to all parents !
Out three kids warmed to Mikka straight away. She has a way with children (5, 3 and 7 months) that I haven’t seen with other sitters before. I wish she could be our full time nanny but unfortunately she got a different job she decided to take so she only helped omits for two weeks. But it was the best two weeks our kids had. Cannot recommend her enough!!
Mikka took care of our twins for a month and she was absolutely fantastic! She treated our kids with so much love and it was obvious that the kids enjoyed her company. I would not hesitate to recommend Mikka to anyone who is seeking to hire a nanny for their children. She is reliable, easy-going and fun!
