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!

My name is Heather Schulz-Hall and I’m an experienced career nanny with over ten years of professional service in the nanny /household manager industry. I originally hail from Chicago, IL where I had the fortune of working with amazing families in the city as well as the north shore suburbs. Olive You Nanny played a role in my career at one point and introduced me to a wonderful family with whom I worked for an extensive period with their two beautiful children. I have a background in early childhood education and psychology which often comes in handy in this very personalized business. I cannot recall a time in my life when I didn't oversee children! Children have always been a passion of mine, perhaps stemming from my massive Cabbage Patch Kid collection as a young girl. Having been a nanny myself and working in many different types of households, I can really appreciate that each family is unique and has specific needs to match their lifestyle and parenting methods. I also have a keen sense for the right mix of talents and characteristics that make nannies exceptional and how to spot them! I know what it takes to create a positive working environment for our nannies so that I can properly align them with their next great adventure when starting with a new family. I'm so excited to be able to be a part of the process of helping both parties find their next perfect match! I look forward to meeting you!
