Jane was nominated by her employer with this letter to First Class Care:
We are writing to nominate Jane Sepulveda for Nanny of the year.
Our family was blessed when Jane joined us in 2007, and we have all continued to learn and grow together. For my daughter, Jane is a mother figure, a tremendous influence and teacher. Jane is fun . . . there is always something going on from baking to playing cards to shopping. Jane is a great teacher, helping with homework and making sure Gabi understands assignments and the work. Jane is nurturing, comforting my daughter in tough times, like when her fish died. Gabi’s care and safety is always her first thought. And more . . my daughter decided to learn to ride a bike one day. They practiced in the back of the house. While Jane was technically off work, when Gabi wanted to go over to the school parking lot at 9:30 pm, Jane was the first to want to see it through and support her.
Jane also takes special care with our dogs, Molly and Pebble. From feeding and walking to training, and general care. The small one was quite fragile when she was young. Jane made special efforts with Pebble. I remember pulling into the driveway one night and seeing Jane with Molly (the older dog). Wondering where Pebble was, I looked again to see her little head peeking out of Jane’s jacket. Jane did not want her too wet and cold.
For me, I cannot imagine life without Jane. She shares her thoughts on my daughter’s growth and school progress and provides suggestions. I have trusted her with my daughter in a number of countries, like Japan, France and the UK. She always goes above and beyond. I knew I had the right person when she approached me to suggest the “values” she would like to make sure she worked on with my daughter.
And finally, we are forever in her debt. I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins lymphoma last year. Jane was a stabilizing influence in our home, and really there for my daughter and me. I’m sure I will never know all of the small things she did behind the scenes without ever asking her taking credit. All is better now, and Jane was a key factor.
For this, and all she does for us, Gabi (Molly, Pebble) and I would like to nominate Jane for the Nanny of the year (and for us, the decade!!). Please consider her.
Jane was chosen because of her amazing bond to this family and how much she has made a difference to them within the 7 years she has been working. Jane is an amazing nanny with over 20 years of experience and we are so proud to call her a First Class Care Nanny of the Year.
Jane won a prize package worth over $700. This included a complete make-over from Teddie Kossof Salon and Spa, an INA Membership, a ticket to 2015 National Nanny Training Day, a $50 gift card and more!
