Meet Our Team
Annie Davis, Founder and CEO
Annie spends much of her time working to expand the business through new ideas and networking and represents Annie’s Nannies on a national level through her work with the Association of Premier Nanny Agencies (APNA) of which she is immediate past president, and the International Nanny Association (INA), on which she has held a board position. She has a degree in education and is active on behalf of Annie’s Nannies with the Ballard Chamber of Commerce. She pursues her individual interests through involvement with the Phinney Neighborhood Community Council (PNCC), exercising five days a week and shaking her fist at the television during pundit shows. She is devoted to family and relishes time with her four granddaughters, ages 11 – 21, frequently entertaining neighbors and family in her home.
Suzanne Royer McCone, President and Placement Counselor
Suzanne has worked with the agency almost since its inception and has helped countless families successfully navigate their childcare and household management challenges. She has helped build the company based on her own experience as a working mother and from almost three decades of learning the needs of families and those looking to work with families. When she’s not at work she is often found in the kitchen baking and is a true movie buff. Her compassion and fun-loving nature are a credit to the agency’s low staff turnover. Suzanne values the opportunity to counsel and support parents and nannies as they evaluate their choices.
Teah Achman, COO and Placement Counselor
An organizational powerhouse, Teah joined Annie’s Nannies almost nine years ago and works with families arranging long-term placements of nannies and household staff, and assists businesses with event childcare. Holding a BA in Communications from Washington State University, she also works with Annie on advertising, public relations and business development. As a working parent, she understands the challenges of balancing a career and childcare. Her family enjoys camping and seeing movies during their free time. Left to her own devices, Teah is likely to be found organizing, reading or doing yoga. She fondly remembers the European vacation her parents took her and her brother on when she was 12 and notes that although her parents did not have a lot of money, they made travel a priority in their family’s life. Teah finds that learning about the special priorities of client families and creating a successful match based on what she discovers is the most rewarding part of her job.
Rachel Frost, Recruiter and Applicant Counselor
Rachel joined Annie’s Nannies in 2012. With more than a decade of experience in Project Management, Recruitment and Human Resources, Rachel is passionate about her work and committed to the success of nannies in every stage of their career development.
As an effective communicator and listener, she has an innate ability to assess character and skills in order to forge a cohesive and harmonious match with terrific families. She specializes in interviewing and sourcing the best available talent. In her free time, she fills her life with various artsy and domestic pursuits such as gardening and taking classes in pickling and homemade sodas. On weekends she can be found belting out tunes and playing bass in a Ballard garage with friends.
Jenny Williams, Temporary Placement Director
Jenny fields many details in her work of placing nannies with families for all the in-between times when full-time or permanent childcare is not necessary. She is sometimes referred to as “Jenny the Magician” as she often seems to produce nannies out of thin air at a moment’s notice. She holds an undergraduate degree from the University of Washington and a Master in Teaching from Seattle University. When she’s not helping parents manage hectic lives, she enjoys reading novels upon novels and going for runs around Green Lake. She also enjoys traveling and has climbed to the top of Preikestolen in Norway, something which makes the palms sweat for the rest of the Annie’s Nannies team, but speaks volumes about Jenny’s ability to handle interesting situations.
