Meet the Team

Gary Matsuda:

Gary Matsuda:

Franchise Owner

This guy runs the show around here. But once upon a time in IT, he implemented technologies that connected internal company database information with external organizations. With Jovie, instead of developing software he helps employees develop soft skills and connects families with personable, responsive individuals who transfer positive life experiences on to the next generation. With his wife and two grown daughters, they are growing a small group at his church where they are keen on seeing lives changed for the better. An avid reader, his favorite magazine is Trader Joe's Fearless Flyer. He hasn't quite finished the Berenstain Bear book series (too many of them).

Amber

Amber has been described as fun and caring . . . and careful fun is what she has with kids. We know that because she receives consistently high scores from our clients who value safety while keeping kids engaged. A former competitive golfer in Oklahoma, she knows about the incremental improvements needed to become better, and applies similar strategies when working with kids. Since she's relocated to Arizona she's proved to be hardworking and optimistic and now studying Communications at Grand Canyon University on her way to becoming a sports broadcaster.

Olivia

Olivia

Caregiver: Natural Nurturer

We've struck caregiver gold with 'Liv' because she packs a depth of maturity for her age. Buried under her kind presence is a rock-solid foundation of love and support she's received while growing up even though tough challenges. When Liv is with kids, it's an opportunity for her to give back and multiply the grace and nurturing she sees that is very much needed these days.

June

June

Caregiver: Children's book author

A world traveler who's sailed on several oceans, June worked as a steward and nanny for families on large yachts. Using her travel experience as reference, she has written two children's books and currently working on a third. Enthusiastic about child advocacy and conservation, she loves teaching children of all ages about resiliency, problem solving and taking care of those in need. Kids are always game for fun stories and June is all hands on deck with oceans of character-building material ready to go.

Zeryn

Zeryn

Caregiver: Gets it Done

Zeryn had to learn early how to manage her time wisely in a big family where time and resources were limited, She can definitely take care of herself as she was a state champion in Muay Thai which actually came in handy when she used it on her brother who was being pesky. Although she won't be pushed around, that's not how she gets things done. Our client families have remarked about her friendliness and personable attitude and on top of that the kids love her too! Zeryn is finishing ASU with a B.S. in Family and Human Development with a Secondary Ed certification.
