Team Appreciation Dinner
Team Appreciation Dinner

Jovie caregivers never go without thanks. When our team feels valued and supported, they provide better care to our network of families. Recently we had an opportunity to spend time with a few of our nannies, where we got a chance to thank them in person for all of their hard work.
