Meet our Top Sitter for April - Eva! Eva is a hardworking operations manager for a start-up company by day, superstar Chime sitter by night (and weekends!).
Like many others, Eva discovered Chime as she was browsing in her Sittercity account. She found Chime fascinating, applied, and 116 Chime sittings later...she is our Top Sitter of the Month.
Eva loves spending time with the same families that frequently book her, however, one of her favorite sittings was her first time meeting a new family. The mother was giving her a rundown and let Eva know that the kids would be working on German homework. Eva quickly jumped in and said she grew up in Switzerland and is fluent in German. Since then, Eva has formed a strong bond with that family and added bonus...it gives Eva the opportunity to practice her German!
Outside of Chime, Eva enjoys running and is ready for Chicago to start warming up so she can run by the lake. Eva also loves any type of craft...so much so that they know her by name at Home Depot. Eva incorporates her love of crafts by bringing a little suitcase of crafts to sittings that are kid-friendly and fun!
Eva is very diligent in keeping her personal calendar aligned with her Chime availability calendar. Even when she’s not booked, but is “available” on Chime, she will block off her personal calendar “just in case”. This must be the secret sauce into how she hasn’t had a single cancellation in the last year!
Another secret to success: Eva recommends that sitters should always “be very confident when you arrive”. When you project that you feel comfortable and get to know the kid(s) right away, then the family will be put at ease. Another tip - “as soon as the kids are in bed, shoot a couple of texts to the parents or share a picture from the day”. Parents really appreciate staying in the loop.
Eva is ecstatic about her Chime Getaway trip, claiming that she never wins anything. She recently mentioned wanting to take a road trip to California to visit all of the beautiful national parks. Now she has even more reason to make that plan come to life sooner!

- What do parents have to say?
"Eva was a delight! My son took to her right away and was happily showing her all his things within moments. They made pizza together for dinner (the leftovers of which I happily devoured later) and played well. She kept him to his normal bedtime routine without issue and when I came home the house was clean and my son was asleep. I already appreciated her sending me a few texts--cute compliments about him and what they were doing and an update once he fell asleep.”
"She is our current favorite Chime sitter, and we'd book her every time! Our girls ask for her by name. :)"
"Eva was excellent!!! She deserves more than a 5! We would certainly love to have her come back."
