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!
Jessica has always had a passion for working with children and families. As the oldest of six kids, she can't really remember a time she wasn't helping take care of kids! She had regular summer babysitting jobs all through high school and after becoming certified as a massage therapist, she made the decision to follow her passion as a professional nanny. As a mom to three kiddos, she understands the importance of finding the best fit for your family and is committed to facilitating a seamless experience from start to finish.
Jeniece and her husband live in the city of Chicago in a small neighborhood, Roscoe Village. She is an entrepreneur by trade and loves what she does! Along side of nannying, she also runs a successful e-commerce business. She has been nannying for quite some time and loves spending time with kiddos and hopes to expand her own family someday. She loves that she gets to build a relationship not only with the children but as well enjoys working closely wit the parents. Jeniece looks forward to making sure that everything runs smoothly during the entire process to make it easier for all involved.
Jessica’s passion for working with children started when she worked as the infant child care teacher of a local child care center. She was also a nanny during her summers in college and the first few summers of her teaching career. After teaching Family and Consumer Sciences for a few years, she turned to nannying full time. Her love and excitement for working with children has continued as she is still a part time nanny for 2 wonderful children. Now, she has expanded her desire to help families and nannies come together for a long lasting relationship!
I can honestly say I've nannied most of my life! Olive You Nanny has placed me with several families in the Chicago area and it seemed like a natural progression to join the team! I've been in this industry for decades, having been a nanny for so many years has given me the tools to be a successful placement provider. I'm really excited to join the team on the North Shore!
Andrea started nannying in college. After graduating from DePaul University with her degree in Elementary Education, she turned to nannying full time. Since then, she got married and has three kids of her own. Having three kids in two years has taught her how important good help is for your family. Her past employment as a nanny mixed with being a mom allows her to value the perspectives on both sides, helping find that perfect placement.
