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.

Some of our Nannies
I'm a good role model because my life experiences have molded me into being one. To begin, I am the oldest child in my family. I have one younger brother, and ever since he was born, it was my job to look out for him and to ensure he had a good example to look up to. As I grew older, this natural leadership grew into other areas of my life. These include being captain of my varsity volleyball team, secretary of National Honor Society, and secretary of DECA club in high school. Now, in college I am in leadership positions - mentioned above - that require a lot of time and care. Being a leader isn't just showing up at meetings. Being a leader means setting a good example, looking out for everyone, and providing the support someone needs. I believe I fulfill all these qualities.
I work extremely hard in all of my classes by staying organized and avoiding procrastination. I am nurturing, caring, and I have a great sense of self. I can help kids discover who they are in an appropriate fashion and help guide them down the right road.
