Maggie has been with our team for over a year now and we couldn’t be more thankful for her! Maggie is a nanny, color guard instructor, book lover, and dog mom. Maggie strives to create a positive and strong bond with every nanny she meets. She holds dear to her values that nannying is special work, and we all need to support each other, despite our differences in techniques, approaches, and methods. Maggie continues to grow in her field by nannying, mentoring, attending conferences, and writing on topics facing the industry today. As Maggie screens nannies for our families, she is looking for the best of the best who present themselves professionally and are passionate about helping impact the next generation.
