Owner | General Manager

I have been a part of the Jovie Family since my first territory opened in October of 2016. Prior to Jovie, I was in the corporate world for over 20 years and understand the challenges families go through balancing work and life. Making that balance a little easier through the wonderful care by nannies and sitters is very important to me. Whether it is through nanny care, sitter care or our special event care, I want your experience to be a positive one and create wonderful memories for you and your children. I am committed to building stronger families.
