Available 2 Days/Week as of Late August 2018
Language – Rose speaks, comprehends, reads, and writes French, and speaks, reads, and comprehends Wolof. Rose is organized and low maintenance, so she has also been able to work for families with no French language skills after a one-time translation on what duties the family would like performed.
Experience – Rose worked for at least four American families, and is only available two days per week because she still works with other Americans. Rose has an RSO clearance through the U.S. Embassy.
Low Maintenance – Rose is super low maintenance! I work long hours and rarely get to interact with her. We put systems in place to leave grocery money, provide receipts, sign for her monthly salary to confirm she received it, and Whatsapp message me photos of the recipes she prepared for the day with nutritional values! She learns/adapts quickly and will have no problem providing what you need.
Grocery Shopping – Rose reads French, so leave her a list of things you want, like, or need, and she will pick them up. Rose is responsible with money, so after running errands she will return with change and receipts for purchases.
Prepare/Clean foods – Rose knows how to prepare and clean foods for safe consumption.
Cooking – Rose is a bit of a “jack of all trades” but I’ve particularly enjoyed her cooking. While she can cook traditional Senegalese meals, Rose also reads French, so upon providing her with a couple of French cook books that were in line with a specific health diet I wanted to follow, Rose adapted to cooking the healthy meals I preferred, and they were excellent! Provide her with any cook book or diet you want, and if the ingredients are here Rose will follow it.
Cleaning – Roses’ cleaning skills are great! We held no discussion/training and she simply went to work. She does all the vacuuming, mopping, dusting, making beds, organizing there is to do in the home.
Laundry – I leave my laundry in one place and Rose does the Washing/Drying, then folds clothing and places them in the correct drawers, irons and creases dress shirts and pants, shines shoes and boots, and steam cleans suits or takes them to the dry cleaner if needed.
Plant/Garden Care – Rose has cared for both my indoor and outdoor plants, sought special treatments from the local gardeners when required, and did planting and re-potting.
Dish Washing – Leave the dishes and Rose will clean/dry and place them back in their originals location.
Running errands – Leave a list of chores/errands in French and Rose will complete them.
Pets/Children – Rose’s previous American family had both pets and children so she has experience with both!
