The founders of Nanny in the City, Princess Sams and Kate Williams, have collaborated to bring forth a personalized and a more tailored approach in the process of matchmaking nannies and families. Combined, Princess and Kate have nearly 4 decades of experience working with children and in the homes of others. In their years prior to Nanny in the City, they have worked for over 40 families, in 4 different states, and those numbers continue to grow.
Princess and Kate are excited about putting their experience as nannies to good use in their venture as entrepreneurs. Nanny in the City is a product of their experience as professional caretakers, and it is the ultimate testament of their passion for what they do.
Princess Sams is a devoted wife and mother of two. Princess currently works as a postpartum doula with over 18 years of experience as a career nanny. She specializes in newborn care, and she has collaborated with her peers to create an all-natural and non-toxic line of care products for all of Nashville’s little ones.
Kate Williams is also a career nanny, who has spent over half of her life as a caretaker. Kate specializes in home-management. Her talents are multifaceted, as she has had the opportunity to assist her former employers in their business ventures as well.
Princess and Kate were working as nannies in the heart of Nashville when they met at a play date almost 4 years ago. After developing a friendship and creating a nanny community within their own circle, they began to see a need within their line of work. They identified that there was a need for someone to advocate for both the nanny and the family. In many cases, it can be uncomfortable for the nanny to negotiate the terms of her contract, and some nannies tend to be more timid. While in other cases, some parents (employers) may find it difficult to effectively communicate their concerns, their wishes and so forth.
After identifying the issue at hand, they decided to come up with a business model unlike any other. Nanny in the City is designed to be the intermediary between the nanny and the family. Our goal is to nurture the relationship, mediate communications and be of assistance in helping make people’s lives and homes run as smoothly as possible. This enables the nanny and family to focus on what is most important, and that being, the children.
