When I was working as a nanny for triplet boys, I missed co-workers. I started CincyNanny in 2009 to gather professional nannies for community – to simply share play dates, friendship, and resources.

Over the years, I found that nannies and families were seeking more direction and information to start set a solid foundation for the working relationship. And, I had that information to share.

I love to educate, coach and empower nannies through the process. We require families to do it right, with things like a written work agreement and legal pay.  Success looks to me looks like long-term happiness for all! 

Always a nanny at heart,
