Meet the Team
As franchise owner of Jovie, together with our great team, we have been providing customized childcare and tutoring since November 2004. Our son and daughter have been recipients of our terrific nannies during their toddler and school aged years to meeting with our role model tutors to help their current high school studies. At Jovie I enjoy working with our families to understand how we can serve their changing needs, as well as with our management team who recruit, match and train our role models who provide exceptional care and tutoring. I enjoy meeting new families through our partnerships, and I learn daily from our staff, nannies and tutors.
Meredith is the Regional Director of California. She supports Jovie managers across all our California locations as they recruit, hire, and train for their nanny and sitter teams. Meredith loves finding opportunities to connect families with exceptional caregivers! Originally from Virginia, Meredith attended the University of South Carolina, where she obtained a degree in Anthropology. After graduating, she spent a year doing service through AmeriCorps. Following that transformative year, she spent six years in the non-profit sector, recruiting college students to mentor and tutor elementary school students in the lowest-income parts of Washington, DC. She moved to Los Angeles in 2013 and spent six years in marketing and sales in the test prep industry with both Kaplan Test Prep and The Princeton Review. In 2017, she brought all those experiences to Jovie, where she now helps families with their childcare needs. She spends her free time knitting, exploring the outdoors with her son, or finding a great Netflix series.
Caroline is the Regional Family Placement Manager for all our California locations. With 20 years of experience in client relations, the film/TV industry & customer service (and almost a decade as a parent), she brings her empathy, knowledge of people, communication, and creative problem-solving to the table. She has a BFA in Theatre with a Musical Theatre Emphasis and is a mother of two hilarious boys and a menagerie of pets. Since joining Jovie in 2020, Caroline and her family have relocated from Burbank, CA, to Kettering, OH, to be closer to family. It’s easy to relate to families wanting the best care for their children, and Caroline delivers ideal nanny matches with genuine care and attentiveness. She enjoys wheel pottery, yoga, baking with her kids, and gardening in her free time.
