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.

Our Placement Director
As our Placement Director, Diane brings over twelve years experience as both a professional nanny and frequent contributor to both nanny and childhood education blogs. Her background includes over a decade of long term nanny placements, with an emphasis in newborn and toddler development. Diane’s passion for creating a nurturing and warm environment for children to thrive in is conveyed through her careful selection of candidates. Outside of the office, you can find Diane caring for two sweet charges, and camping no matter what the weather. She owns an incredibly large tea collection, but will never say no to a donut or a latte!
