Meet Cambridge Nanny – Holly

September 3, 2011

Every month Cambridge Nanny Group highlights a nanny who is setting the bar on childcare. This september we introduce you to Holly.

Holly was born and raised in Waterloo, Iowa. She was raised on her family’s farm where her father worked as machinist and her mother was an elementary school teacher. She loved growing up in Iowa. “At night during the Summer, we slept in tents under the stars. Our favorite nighttime games were playing flashlight tag and catching fireflies in jars to watch them light up.”

Coming of age Holly helped care for her 4 younger siblings – 2 boys and 2 girls. She also babysat for local families on weekends. During the week she dedicated herself to her studies graduating from high school with high honors and enjoyed painting. Holly then went on to attend the University of Michigan where she earned her B.A in Art and a minor in French.

After college she worked in Paris, France as an au pair where was able to hone her French skills and the experience also solidified her desire to work with children. “I fell in love with the nanny experience. I was able to work one on one with an infant..the experience was so incredibly rewarding”, says Holly.

After returning to the United States Holly was referred to Cambridge Nanny Group and was placed with a family in Winnetka, IL. She cared for 2 children – the youngest was only 6 weeks old when her employment commenced.

“I love being a nanny. I’m a relied upon partner in parenting and it feels good to make a difference in the lives of children families”, says Holly.”

Holly is still working with her client family, but on a part-time basis which free’s her up to continue her education. “The transition from full-time to part-time works out great because I’m now studying to earn my elementary school certification. My goal is to teach first grade. My experience working one-on-one with children and families is invaluable. It will help me be a better teacher.”

In her spare time Holly enjoys spending time with her fiancé Jon and her pug Lilly. She enjoys painting, writing, and baking.
