“We've worked with agenices that charged us a lot of money, but didn't deliver in terms of excellent candidates. When we used your site, we were able to evaluate many candidates and limit our interviewing to a select group. Our full time nanny, who we think is great, was found through Nannies4hire. We just found another part time nanny as well through your site.”

I started my career as a nanny, working for a family with five children. I quickly learned what families need, and applied those real-life lessons to my business. Iíve been a nanny, owned a nanny agency, started 3 online nanny databases, and wrote ď100 Tips for Nannies & Families.Ē Plus, Iím a wife and mother of two young boys, so I know first-hand what itís like to balance work and a family. I believe that women can have it all, but they need help to do so! My company provides that necessary help and support.
Since I was young, Iíve always been a motivated, outgoing self-starter. My parents were self-employed, which motivated and inspired me to do the same. I had a great idea for a business, and Iíve experienced tremendous growth by meeting the needs of other families like my own Ė who need a little extra help at home.
My parents really inspired me. They were self-employed and I grew up watching their hard work, dedication, creativity and tenacity. They were there for me, supporting me when I started my business, encouraging me to pursue my dream.
was a great honor for us to be named to the Inc. 500 List of Fastest Growing Companies this year. We were also very proud to work with TLC and their hit show Jon & Kate + 8. We were an integral part of finding nannies for the Gosselin familyís sextuplets and twins. And weíve formed successful ongoing relationships with the Dr. Phil Show. In fact, Dr. Phil has repeatedly recommended us to guests on his show.
Then things in business donít go the way they should, donít give up and stay positive.

Everything takes longer than you expect. Be patient, work hard and it will come together in the end.
Iíve found The Mom Entrepreneur Online Support Group to be a valuable resource. Itís an online networking group that offers tips, advice and networking opportunities for mom entrepreneurs. I also rely on social networking tools, such as LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook, to quickly and easily deliver messages to my target audiences. These online networking tools are such an effective way to connect with people and grow my business!
In my free time I enjoy spending time with my two energetic boys and husband. We enjoy going to the lake and enjoying each otherís company.
Our goal is to make every family and nanny experience positive and rewarding.
