April’s Nanny of the Month is…

FB_IMG_1430406175947….Jasmine Giles! We’ve worked with Jasmine since 2012 placing her in long-term, short-term, and on-call positions. She is an all around sweetheart and we are happy to have her on our team.  Her newest long-term family says she’s already part of the family!

When asked something funny a child recently said to her, Jasmine had this to say:

“We are teaching  the 2.5 year old I nanny to blow on her food to cool it down  if it’s hot. The meal came out and she said “Jazzy make sure you blow first” After I did to cool down her food she said, “Good job Jazzy!” I love how she is learning and told me good job like I always tell her!”

Congratulations Jasmine and Thank you!

Jordan Monasmith…Nanny of the Month for March 2015!


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.

February Nanny of the Month – Shoshana Matteson

IMG956428We first met Shoshana in September last year, though she had been working as a nanny in Seattle for over 10 years. Boy, were we excited when she walked through our door!

Growing up as the second eldest of ten children, working with kids has been part and parcel of Shoshana’s whole life. Part of what makes her so special is the dedication she shows to her charges and the way she treats them as if they were part of her own family.

This has not gone unnoticed by the family we placed Shoshana with in November 2014; they recently sent us an email out of the blue telling us how much they love her!

“When we found out that our twins were due to be delivered very early and would have some complex medical needs (home oxygen and feeding issues) we were very anxious about how we were going to find someone to care for them when I returned to work.  Shoshana and your agency have been an absolute blessing. 

Shoshana is one of the most remarkable people I have ever met.  Not only has she expertly managed our girls’ medical needs, which in my mind is above and beyond the standard nanny job description, she has been incredibly flexible and has stepped in on several scheduling emergencies.  On one occasion she stepped in and was at our house at 5:45am on only 10 hours’ notice.  This was on a day that she is not usually scheduled to work but I was called in for a shift in the ICU and my husband was out of town. 

When I returned from work 14 hours later, the girls were sleeping soundly, the house was immaculate, all of the cooking and laundry was completed and these were not even tasks that were in the job description that we had agreed upon!  She replied simply that she wanted me to be able to have a restful night before going to work the next day.  This is only one small example of how extraordinarily kind and hardworking Shoshana is.  Every week she finds some new way to make our lives easier in addition to caring for and loving our little girls.  I always feel a sense of pride when I am meeting with my friends and discussing work life balance/child care because we truly have found a gem.”

With this commendation, we couldn’t not make Shoshana our February Nanny of the Month! Congratulations!

Annie’s Nannies 2014 Nanny of the Year- Jackie Ralston!

Jackie NOY2014

Autumn, Suzanne, Jackie, Teah, Jenny

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!

The Affordable Care Act: Potential changes to Nanny Health Insurance

ACA_logoThere is LOTS of conflicting information out there at the moment regarding the way that nanny health insurance can be handled with the changes brought by the Affordable Care Act.  We are keeping in close contact with Breedlove & Associates to figure out how to advise our clients and nannies.  Unfortunately, as of today we are in limbo on how the new Affordable Care Act will affect the way families have been handling helping their nanny with health insurance.

November Nanny of the Month – Lynne Sandilands!

Post 10K

Lynne after running the Vancouver 10K in October

ANI is pleased to announce our November Nanny of the Month…. Lynne Sandilands! Lynne is one of our permanent nannies and has been with an ANI family since February of this year. With over 11 years as a household manager and an additional 5 of nanny and au pair experience, there is not much that surprises Lynne! In her free time, you’ll find Lynne hiking, snowshoeing and spending time with her pets – or possibly a combination of all three!

Her regular family comments that Lynne is quirky, funny and fits in well with the family. They also note that it is the calmest it has been in a while with Lynne helping manage the household. They have very much enjoyed watching Lynne grow more and more confident in her role in the family.

One of the (many) things we love about Lynne at ANI is her unique Scottish accent. One of the funniest things she’s heard a child say to her is, “Do you speak any other languages apart from Scottish?”

Thank you Lynne. We appreciate you so much!

Annie’s Nannies is Moving to West Seattle!

By: Diane Duthweiler

(September, 2014) –– Seattle’s pioneering household-staffing agency Annie’s Nannies will open its new office on West Seattle’s California Avenue October 6th. The 30-year-old company needs room to grow. “We’ve been ‘space-challenged’ for a while now,” laughs COO Teah Achman. “West Seattle is a good fit for the business and our staff. We’re all excited about the new office and new neighborhood.”

“I started this business in my bedroom with $1,500 and a phone. Since then, we’ve found top jobs for thousands of people, but it’s been a roller coaster ride of ups and downs with the economy,” recalls founder Annie Davis who runs the company with daughter Suzanne Royer-McCone. Royer-McCone adds, “A business like ours must change constantly to keep up with the marketplace. We’re incredibly proud of our longevity―30 years of our wonderful staff making Seattle area families’ lives easier and finding the perfect jobs for our nannies!”

Annie’s Nannies is moving from its current office in Ballard where it has been for the past 14 years. But Davis’ ties to the community are deep, and she plans to remain active with the Ballard Chamber of Commerce where she is currently a board member and program chair.

New Location:
6041 California Ave. SW, Suite 105
Seattle, WA 98136
Ph:  206-784-8462

 Founded in 1984 and the Northwest’s longest-serving household staffing agency, Annie’s Nannies, Incorporated (ANI) provides child care/family assistants, elder companions and other personal employees. ANI is a 2009 Mayor’s Small Business Award winner and the first Seattle small business to pay a $15 minimum wage. Davis is past-president of the National Association of Premier Nanny Agencies, A Household Staffing Alliance (APNA) – a non-profit that helps set industry standards across the nation.
