a nanny serves to bring balance to a family. Every family is different, and every child is different. Each family and child needs something different from me to bring balance to their lives.

I love knowing that my presence allows the child to thrive in a secure attachment relationship while the parents engage in their careers, maintain a social life, or even just have the time to exercise or shower in peace. In the interest of this, I provide a lot of services other nannies shy away from or don't know how to handle, which can include accompanying children to dentist and doctor appointments, keeping the house tidy, training other nannies on the caregiving team, traveling with children, caring for children while parents are out of town, ordering groceries, cooking for the family, cultivating playdate opportunities, or even filling parent volunteer hours at the child's school. I thrive in a job filled with all of these things and more. This is the stuff of life!”
