Since I can remember, I always had very high expectations for myself and others around me. I wanted to try my best, and be the best.  I knew whatever I choose to be in life it would be to help others, and it needed to involve children.

I became a nanny in 2007, and absolutely loved the connections I made with parents and children. I knew I could do more with my talent.

Before the thought of launching Second City Nannies, I worked with other agencies searching for my next nanny position. It occurred to me that can do this too. I can be on the other side of the desk, asking the questions.

Second City Nannies opened for business in August of 2013.

I continued to work as a nanny/house manager in Chicago while building my agency. There were a lot of hiccups along the way, a lot of doubters, and thoughts of being in over my head. But I kept moving along and kept building my agency year by year, but I would not have it any other way.

Since launching the agency, I became a new mom after 16 years. Yikes!

Now, I am solely focused on Second City Nannies while caring for my now 3 year old son, and 19 year old daughter, married to the best cheerleader!

I am juggling talks with newbie moms, interviewing hopeful nannies, managing my website, and home. I am where I envisioned myself to be years ago when I decided that I could run a better agency.
