When I was a little girl I knew all I wanted to be was a mom. People would ask what I wanted to be when I grew up and the answer was “I want to be a mom”. I’ve always admired moms and especially my mom. There is no other role in life quite like being a mother. And even though it’s chaos, craziness and tiring, it’s still my favorite part of everyday.
Naturally I became a nanny. When I was 18, I moved to San Francisco and decided this was what I was meant to do. (Closest thing to being a mother.) I’ve also nannied in Denver and Chicago. As I got older, I realized I had bigger career aspirations and decided to start a nanny agency. I was 24, married and had nothing to lose, so I gave it a shot! I took the next year to get a business plan in place, talked to lawyers and insurance companies and voila, in business!
I started Olive You Nanny in Chicago in 2005. The response was immediate. Apparently the personal process that we provide to our families was just what these parents wanted and needed!! We meet every family in person and really match according to personalities, family values among many other things.
Here is a list of services we provide:
Full Time Nanny Placement
Part Time Nanny Placement
Occasional Sitter Placement (date night!)
Night Nanny Placement
Since opening the doors to my business, Olive You Nanny is now in 7 cities across the US. I now have 3 kiddos and moved to Austin 2 years ago! So far so good. The people here in Austin are amazingly friendly. We have a HOUSE and GRASS!! (Moved from downtown Chicago where we lived in a condo). My kids are in a great school and life….is much slower 🙂 I still haven’t seen a rattle snake and if I do, I may head back to the frozen tundra!!
