CO-FOUNDER, RECRUITMENT & PLACEMENT SPECIALIST
Prior to establishing Hello, Nanny!™, Marie spent the first half of her career as a nanny with the latter half as a Placement Specialist. With over twenty years combined industry experience; Marie discovered areas within the industry that would benefit from positive change. She had a desire to create a Boutique Nanny Agency that focused on mutual partnerships between nannies and families.
Marie was blessed with a family at the beginning of her career that sustained a ten year placement. During that time, Marie formed a deep affinity and relationship with her nanny family. Marie's Mom-Boss, Veronica, often went above and beyond the call of duty, serving as a mentor that she looked up to tremendously.
Sadly, Veronica was diagnosed with terminal cancer six years into Marie's tenure with the family. Marie and the rest of her nanny family were devastated by the news of Veronica's cancer diagnosis.
It is Veronica’s legacy of tenacity and grace that has influenced Marie to go after her goals and aspirations of establishing a nanny agency. With that Marie strives to make a positive impact in the lives of nannies and families the way Veronica made an impact for her.
CO FOUNDER & INTAKE COORDINATOR
Stephanie Fornaro graduated from the University of California, Davis with a BA in Communications. She has developed her career in sales and business development, particularly in medical device, and software sales.
In the midst of her career, Stephanie and her husband welcomed their second child, Jesse. She quickly found herself struggling to juggle her career and newborn. Placing their infant son at a daycare facility was not an option they were comfortable with. Subsequently, Stephanie and her husband concluded that hiring a nanny was the best solution for their family.
Through their nanny search, they discovered their nanny, Megan.
Today, as a (MB) Mom Boss of 4 years with Megan, Stephanie is familiar with the communication and balance required to cultivate a harmonious partnership between nannies and families. Above all, Stephanie relates well with families like herself that find themselves in search for a nanny that can trust and rely on.
