The College Nannies and Tutors franchises have one common goal- to Build Stronger Families®. Sharon Ragland-Keys knew her 18 years in Human Resources Leadership roles combined with her passion for helping others made owning a CNT franchise an easy decision.
Sharon looked at several businesses and chose CNT because it aligned with her professional experience, and it’s a full services model for families needing assistance from cradle to college. As a working parent, Sharon identified the need for an agency like CNT, and since opening in 2009; she has been dedicated to providing nanny and tutoring role models for families across Southeastern Michigan.
Her positive impact on the community doesn’t stop there. In 2010, Sharon joined the Canton Chamber of Commerce and serves on the board promoting the organization’s work to bring businesses, local government and citizens together to advance the economic prosperity of the community.
Sharon is a certified Senior Professional in Human Resources by the Society of Human Resources Management and member Greater Ann Arbor Society for Human Resource Management.
Sharon hopes to continue CNT’s vision and is committed to helping families and her employees have an amazing experience.
Alissa Novak is currently a student at Wayne State University. She graduated from Salem High School in 2011. Her future plans are to major in biology and pre-med and eventually become a pediatrician. Starting at 7 years old, she started playing hockey, and at 10, softball. Unfortunately her schedule got too busy to keep up with all the activities, and she decided to stop playing. Growing up her favorite things to do were crafts, bike rides, and playing outside. She's outgoing, fun, and very determined. Learning from the most important role models in her life, encouraged her to be who she has become today.
I love working with children! I also love providing quality care for the child/children and giving the parents any help they need organizing their children's activities and household allowing them relief and security, so that both the child/children and parents know that they are getting the best care.
Helping others understand material more fully and efficiently is a skill I have always done well, and also enjoyed. From my experience I feel that I have been very effective in building the knowledge and skill base those I have mentored. These informal opportunities were chances for me to strengthen my own pursuits in academia, as well as build my interpersonal expertise. A good tutor should feel accomplishment in their student's achievements, as I do.
I am a good role model because I have good morals, I know how to be very supportive of students who struggle, I am very confident and know what it takes to be a strong woman and succeed in life. I also know how to express my opinions freely and I always stick to what I believe is right.
