Living in New York has been my dream since I was 13, and coincidentally 13 was also my age when I began babysitting. Fast forward to college; I knew it was time to move from being a summer nanny in Arkansas to becoming a nanny on the East Coast. I have worked with two amazing families in my time as a Southern Grace Nanny. I spent the first summer in Connecticut, Nantucket, and New Hampshire. I was able to explore places I would not typically get to visit. I joined the next family during the summer of covid lockdown, and we spent the entire summer on Long Island. Despite being in the beginning of the pandemic, our time together was almost magical. I came back the following year after college graduation and I have been with them in New York City ever since! My nanny family feels like my second family, and getting to live in the heart of New York City is a dream come true. Being a Southern Grace Nanny has also given me the opportunity to develop real world skills like budgeting, time management, and a strong sense of independence. I have had the best time as a nanny, and would encourage anyone who wants to go on a new adventure to consider Southern Grace Nannies.
