Meet Our Sitters

Born in Gómez Palacio DGO, Mexico, Alondra moved to the United States in 2006. Since then, she has pursued her passion of education and  working with kids.

Currently obtaining her degree in Elementary Education with an endorsement in Early Childhood Education at NAU, Sandra comes to us with that Sitters Select spark and a lot of ambition. Always trying to be better than the day before, her goal is to obtain her masters in Educational Psychology.


A sophomore at PVCC, Sophie brings her love of all things STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) related to the Sitters Select family. She's actively involved in outreach organized to engage kiddos and their families in after-school events.


Last, but certainly not least, Sophie is a self-declared expert tennis ball thrower for her two puppies.


Each of our sitters are education majors studying at the college level or are already educators. Of course everyone on our team is CPR & First Aid Certified, Background Checked and has their Fingerprint Clearance Card. But we don’t stop there, we believe in learning through play and reducing screen time. That’s why our sitters come equipped with age appropriate kits from which your kiddos will not just learn, they’ll have fun too

Gary Serlin

“Finding Sitters Select has been a saving grace for us!  We love that our dogs can stay at home with Josie, who clearly loves animals as much as we do. Our dogs greet her with tail wags & kisses.  She's the right person to care for our fur babies when we can’t!”
