Jasmine has been working consistently in our On-Call pool since last September. She has worked with children of all ages and many families have such positive things to say about her. One parent says, “She is our top choice!” Another family told us how wonderful it was to come home when Jasmine was their nanny and hear their sons’ laughter from outside the house. Lastly, one happy mom raved, “We just LOVED Jasmine. [My girls] took to her right away! She arrived enthusiastic for the job and we will definitely request her again.” Read more »
Congratulations, Courtney Martini! You are our April Nanny of the Month!
Courtney has been taking consistent On-Call work for some time now and we have received so many positive remarks about her from happy families. One family remarked, “Courtney was wonderful! She was very flexible with both of us coming in and out of the house at various times.” Another happy dad said it more succinctly: “Terrific. Loved her. Personable, mature, overall lovely.”
When asked to share the funniest thing she’s heard a child say, Courtney responded with the following: “This morning, while on a coffee date with a 4 ½ year old, he looked at me and then down at his chocolate old-fashioned doughnut, and said, ‘Don’t ask me if this is good, because these are always good!’ Apparently I’m too predictable.”
We think you are fantastic, thanks Courtney!
Congratulations to Dahlia Winans on being chosen as Annie’s Nannies March Nanny of the Month! Dahlia has been described as a 21st century Mary Poppins! One family recently told us, “We LOVE Dahlia!”
When asked to share a funny story about a child, Dahlia told us the following story: “One time a child told me ‘Dahlia, I ran to the bathroom as fast as I could but the poo ran faster than me!’”
Dahlia is creative, compassionate, and brings an excellent sense of humor and fun to her work.
Congratulations Dahlia and thank you for your exceptional work as a Nanny!
Congratulations to Amity May on being chosen as Annie’s Nannies February Nanny of the Month! She has been such an incredible asset to the On-Call team and we always get excellent feedback on her: “Amity was great. Yesterday was the longest time I’ve been away from Isabella and I felt comfortable with Amity right away. She seemed really trustworthy and mellow, which is exactly what my baby needs. I came home to a happy baby.”
When asked about something funny a child recently told her Amity had this to say: “I’d say one of the cutest things said to me recently was when a four year old boy told me he loved me after having only met me one other time. I love how open little kids are.”
Congratulations Amity and thank you for all you do!!

Congratulations to Mary Elizabeth Johnson on being chosen Annie’s Nannies November Nanny of the Month! Mary Elizabeth was hired as a summer nanny by an ANI family who had this to say: “Mary Elizabeths’ approach is to inspire children through mutual respect, gentle reminders and discussion.” This fall Mary Elizabeth was hired into a long-term Family Assistant role!
When asked about her favorite holiday activity with children, Mary Elizabeth replied: “My absolute favorite thing to do around the holidays with children is take a walk and look at all the decorations! It’s a great excuse to just take a stroll around the neighborhood or pop into a nearby store. The kids love seeing all the lights and creative decorations and the best part is, it’s totally free! You can also make a game out of it, like on Halloween, we went around the neighborhood on a pumpkin hunt! We counted all the pumpkins we could see and it was a fun and great way to keep the kids engaged.”
Congratulations Mary Elizabeth and thank you for representing ANI in the community!
Our July Nanny of the Month is Audrey Brown! Audrey was hired this year by two ANI families that love her. She is also a highly requested On-Call nanny! One of the funniest things she’s ever had a child say to her was: “Audrey, your elbows are smaller than they were yesterday.”
One of our ANI families comments, “We so appreciate having Audrey in our lives!! Her kind spirit, generosity, and desire to help out with any project is amazing. She brings so much joy into our family and our home and honestly makes our world so much better.”
Congratulations Audrey! Thank you for being an Annie’s Nanny!
Diane Bailey is our June Nanny of the Month! Diane has worked with Annie’s Nannies for over 10 years, and is one of our most popular On-Call Nannies. One of our On-Call Member Family’s recently shared with us: “Diane was great. She was early, which I appreciated. She showed a genuine interest in my kids. And my house was so clean when I got home! I didn’t expect her to do all of that but I appreciated it immensely. I would definitely like to work with her again.”
When asked what her favorite thing is to do on summer vacation, she answers: “I love spending time with friends or family on vacation- exploring cities, or basking in the sun. Oh, and definitely eating well as there are no calories in vacation food, right?” Thank you Diane for being an amazing Nanny!!
Alyssa Allen is our Nanny of the Month for May! Alyssa has been a superstar for our On-Call team these past few months. She has been available for so many of our families and the praises just keep pouring in! When asked about her favorite summer activities, she responded, “The activities I am most excited to do with [children] are all the outdoor activities. Growing up in Montana, I spent my whole summer outdoors. I would fish, swim, and wake board on Flathead Lake, hike in Glacier Park, and see nature in its purest and most beautiful forms… I love being able to share these adventures with children and let them see the joy in exploring nature in different ways.” Thank you Alyssa!
