About Starling Agency
Starling Agency focuses on integrity and attention to detail when helping your family hire a nanny. After all, as parents, educators and professional nannies we know what is invaluable to your family at the end of the day. Starling Agency has been recognized as a leader in the nanny industry by Red Tricycle, ParentMap, and Nanny Magazine. The majority of our clients are recommended by word-of-mouth, which is a testament to our successful placements.
Our Founder & Director:
Mandie has over 20 years experience in childcare and education. Known for her sense of humor, sincerity, and commitment, Mandie is trusted by families to help them find a nanny with that special “spark.” Her thoughtful and knowledgeable guidance has earned enthusiastic support from families, educators, and nannies. As a mom, professional nanny and teacher, she understands what skills and characteristics are necessary to provide the best possible care for children of all developmental stages and needs.
Mandie earned a degree in Elementary Education from Western Washington University. She has taught grades Pre-K – 5th, concentrating in special education, academic intervention, and curriculum development. As a professional nanny, she had the opportunity to work with high-profile families, travel, manage nanny shares, and care for children with special needs. Outside of Starling Agency, Mandie advocates for place-based science and art curriculum, as well as quality literacy programs for underserved local populations. Mandie also loves spending time with her family, reading, and staying extremely caffeinated.
Our Placement Director:
Several years ago, Kaitlin was renamed “Kiki” by her young charge. We continue to call her “Kiki” because, well, it’s adorable! As our Placement Director, Kiki brings 11 years of experience in education and childcare. With her background experience as an elementary school teacher and a professional nanny, Kiki strives to recommend candidates that are passionate about nurturing children’s development. In her spare time, she teaches baby & toddler yoga and manages the popular nanny blog, Kiki Cares. You won’t believe this, but Kiki accomplishes all of her success without a drop of coffee. Don’t worry, we can’t relate either!
