a quick bit about me…
I’ve worked in nanny care for over 20 years now, as a nanny, organization leader, trainer and consultant. I’m a diehard believer that one person can make a difference in the world, and that caring for kids is one of the most uplifting, humbling and humorous places to make that difference. I’m a recent transplant to the Seattle area and have fallen madly in love with all it has to offer. Well, maybe not the coffee but everything else.
