(Oct. 11, 2015 – Seattle) –– The Association of Premier Nanny Agencies, a national non-profit that helps set the bar for safe professional service in the nanny industry, has bestowed a Lifetime Achievement Award to Seattle’s Annie Davis, founder of Annie’s Nannies, Incorporated.
“I started my business in 1984. In the last 31 years, my staff has done a wonderful job helping thousands of our families find a nanny for their children. These women make me so proud and happy,” says Davis. “They offer integrity and compassion in finding a nanny the perfect position and the family the perfect nanny. My staff deserves this award and I will be sharing it with them, as well as a nice bottle of champagne!”
Congratulations to Jordan Monasmith, our Nanny of the Month for March! Jordan is a permanent nanny who came to us in July of last year. We were excited about her variety of experience working with children. Jordan had recently worked as a children’s speech therapist in the Bremerton School District when she came to us and previously as a nanny and preschool teacher.
We found a great family for Jordan who is absolutely over the top about her. Mom shared that,” Jordan is amazing! She’s everything we wanted in a nanny”.
Jordan’s favorite quote from her charges is when the little sister (4yrs) was talking about her older brother (7 yrs); she said “Well, I think my brother can do it, he can already read AND crack an egg!”
In her spare time you will find Jordan loving her dog Tank who is a 9 month old Frug, spending time with friends and attempting DIY projects.

We want to congratulate Jackie Ralston on being voted Annie’s Nannies 2014 Nanny of the Year!
Jackie joined ANI last summer, and quickly became one of our most requested temp nannies. She was awarded Nanny of the Month in October. In addition to being a fabulous nanny, Jackie also has a parent-coaching business where she teaches new parents all kinds of skills. The family that ANI placed her with had this to say:
“Jackie joined our family in November of 2014. She has jumped in with both feet, integrating herself seamlessly with our family which includes two pre-teen boys. Jackie has a firm, unflappable demeanor and a marvelous way of moving things along that need to get done without you even realizing she’s the force behind the movement. She jumps from rhythmic writing, to Nerf gun battles, and then off to after school events. She is truly dedicated and tireless. We have one child involved in a number of therapies and she has learned all of the techniques involved, and her follow through and guidance has been instrumental in making the therapies effective for him. Teachers, coaches and therapists have all commented on how wonderful our nanny is. We entirely agree. I feel very fortunate to have Jackie as a part of our household, and am so proud that she was awarded Nanny of the Year.”
Congratulations Jackie! Thank you for all you do everyday!
