I launched Second City Nannies with the mindset of knowing how important it is for parents to trust their caregivers. Prior to opening Second City Nannies, I was a professional nanny for seven years for families in Chicago. From a very early age I knew whatever I did as a career, it had to involve kids, especially babies! After being a part of so many families lives, and being proud of connections I’ve made with them, I knew I had to continue reaching families on a deeper level. While managing Second City Nannies I continued to work part- time as a nanny, and household manager, as my love of the pursuit was not diminished. My wish to become a trusted and reliable resource for childcare, is only matched by my love of the nanny profession itself; it truly is my passion. Through this rewarding quest, I’ve become a mother to a sixteen year old girl, just welcomed a baby boy, and still reside in Chicago.
I am a very enthusiastic and motivated child care specialist with a passion for children, mental health and family dynamics! Originally from Cleveland, I recently moved to Chicago to pursue my Master’s in School Psychology. After graduating with my Bachelor’s in Child Development and Family Studies, I was a nanny, household manager and psychology research coordinator for several years. Through my educational background and hands on experience, I have learned how to work effectively with children and families of diverse backgrounds. I am incredibly excited to work on the other end of the process as a placement coordinator with Second City Nannies to help busy Chicago families find the missing piece to their daily lives!
I have always wanted to work with children and their families. After graduating with a Bachelors Degree in Child Development, I began working in child care centers with infants, toddlers, and preschool age children. After doing that for a few years, I decided to become a nanny. Being a nanny has really shown me what one-on-one care can do for a child, and it has been a very rewarding experience. I love working with children because they are honest and inquisitive, and always guaranteed to make you laugh! I’m very glad to be given the opportunity to work with families in a new capacity by helping them find great nannies for their little ones!
