I am Glenda.

I retired in 2015 after 40 years in the Child Care Industry. I spent 9 of those years as a Child Care Center Director. I went to school to be a professional nanny and I spent 31 years as a career nanny. I spent 22 of those years with the same family where I had the privilege of not just being with the family from the birth of both children but being part of their lives to this day. I had the privilege of being a founding board member of the International Nanny Association (INA) (www.nanny.org)

The honor of being named the INA Nanny of the Year in 1991 and then in 2016 again being honored with the 2016 INA Meritorious Service Award for my contributions to the Nanny Industry over the last 31 years.

After spending a lifetime caring for other people’s children, I have a special place in my heart for Mothers. I have had the privilege of working with two strong women who allowed me to love their children. I learned a lot about being strong from both of them. Mothers have such an important job to do and they carry so much guilt for thinking they are never enough. For all you moms who question that, I want to share this quote by Jill Churchill.

“There’s no way to be a perfect mother and a million ways to be a good one.” – Jill Churchill
