A letter from our founder,
I always knew I would work with children. As the middle child of two sisters, I found myself constantly taking care of people. My youngest sister is ten years younger than me, and when she was born, I assisted my mom with her care every day. I was there the day she was born, holding my mother's hand as she pushed this slimy, alien baby out of her body, I was there when she installed her car seat for the first time, and I was there on her first day of pre-school. Of course, being an older sibling automatically puts you in a caretaking role, but I surprisingly enjoyed it. Little did I know that I would be there for countless "first times" with the families I worked with over the next ten years. Becoming an older sibling prepared me for my nanny career.
Once I completed high school, my first year of college, I secured a nanny position. I had babysat and volunteered throughout my teen years, and I was ready for the big leagues. I spent 3.5 years with my first family, and I knew from that moment on that being a professional nanny was my dream career. I knew that I desired to assist parents with raising their children. My passion and love for the field expanded over a decade career, and as the years grew, so did my heart. The time that I spent with each family strengthened my skills and healed and transformed me in many ways. Each child I worked with still holds a huge piece of my heart.
After a decade of working with families near and far, I felt fulfilled and ready for the next adventure. I knew that I had learned so much about being a nanny and working with families, and I wanted to expand my knowledge and skill. That is how Nannies in the City came into fruition. From working in households to placing nannies in households, my passion and love for the domestic household employee field continues to expand. My goal now is to assist families with hiring professional nannies that will enrich their children.
