About Olive You Nanny
Sarah Davis, Founder (Austin)
I launched Olive.You.Nanny in 2005 in Chicago. Prior to opening Olive.You.Nanny, I was a professional nanny for 10 years in San Francisco, Denver and Chicago. My goal for starting Olive.You.Nanny was to make a personal connection with both the families we work with and the nannies. We pride ourselves on making long lasting relationships and to put our families at ease in the process. Everyone who works for the company has been a nanny, has a background in education or counseling and has years of experience in this industry. In this journey I have since had 3 kiddos and now live in Austin.
Thanks to all the families and nannies I have had the pleasure of working with, this company has grown through a lot of dedication and many amazing clients!
