Donna was raised in Corpus Christi, TX and graduated with honors from Texas A&M University with a BS in Computer Science and an MS in Industrial Engineering. She worked in the corporate world for 12 years, subsequently taking time off to raise three active children and enjoy her family. In early 2007, Donna and Doug opened College Nannies + Tutors in Austin, and is excited to continue to grow and serve local families.
She particularly enjoys traveling and spending time with family and friends. Other interests include tennis, biking, meeting interesting people, and all things related to business.
Raised in Indiana, along with his eight siblings, Doug graduated from Purdue University with a degree in electrical engineering. He accepted his first corporate position in New York, where he met the love of his life while she was on a temporary assignment. It didn't take long for him to follow her back to Texas, where they were married. Residents of Austin since the early 80's, they have raised three children who all received degrees from Texas A&M and have struck out on their own. In 2007, Doug and Donna opened the first College Nannies & Tutors (CNT) location in Texas, which seemed a natural fit given the value they place on family and education. It gives them great pride to help families every day to navigate the demands of life and to make it a little less stressful. Doug decided in 2012 to leave his corporate job and devote himself to CNT full time. He likes to say he cut back from two jobs to one! They currently operate 4 offices in the Austin area.
