Kevin S.

Franchise Owner

Kevin has called the Bay Area home since his teenage years, having moved to the Golden State with his family from Oaxaca, Mexico. He has experience in business planning spanning over two decades. He has worked with a European multinational luxury goods conglomerate and most recently running a locally owned high-end small business in downtown San Francisco with a presence in boutiques across the U.S.

Through Jovie, Kevin hopes to play a part in helping make it easier and less stressful to raise a family in an ever evolving, dynamic region like the Bay Area by providing families with caring, dependable and trustworthy caregivers, nannies and sitters, along with strong college prep & homework help tutors.


Michael M.

Franchise Owner

Michael has been a Bay Area resident since 1990, when a great career opportunity allowed him to relocate from San Diego. After a rewarding career in software development, he found himself at a career crossroads. He wanted to find a way for his work to have a more meaningful and tangible impact. Jovie provides the opportunity to help families manage their busy lives and help children reach their full potential.

Michael is an uncle to many wonderful nieces and nephews and father to a loving cat. In his spare time, Michael loves to travel, read, attend theatre and watch sporting events. During the time between careers, Michael took a trip to five different continents, including his first visit to New Zealand, Australia, South Africa and Argentina.

Role Model Manager

Annie joined Jovie of the East Bay, San Francisco and Los Gatos as our Client Services Manager in June of 2022.
Annie is a proud Bay Area native and brings her 17+ years of experience managing childcare and family programs. Annie’s childcare career began when she became an attendant for her local health club childcare. Little did Annie know that she would eventually become the health club's Family Programming Director.
