As franchise owner of College Nannies and Tutors, together with our great team, we have been providing customized childcare and tutoring since November 2004. Our 12 year old son and 10 year old daughter are regular recipients of our terrific nannies for date nights and our role model tutors for varying school support needs.
College Nannies and Tutors has been a terrific adventure and I enjoy working with our families, nannies and tutors to provide role models and exceptional care and tutoring. I enjoy meeting new families through our partnerships, and I learn daily from our staff, nannies and tutors.
My name is Allison and I am the Director of Services for multiple CNT locations. I graduated from North Central University in Minneapolis with a degree in Intercultural Studies and Teaching English as a Foreign Language. I began at CNT while in college working as a tutor and a nanny. Since then, I have held a variety of roles with the company including SES/NCLB Coordinator and Learning Center Manager. In my free time I enjoy volunteering at my local church, reading, playing piano, and traveling. I love working with families to see students reach their goals as well as help nannies and tutors build valuable experience for their future careers.
At College Nannies and Tutors I work as the Nanny Placement Manager for our Seattle, Bellevue, and Redmond families. As the oldest of four daughters, family has always been the most important thing in my life. My final decision to attend the University of Washington allowed me to pursue my educational goals while maintaining a close relationship with my family. It also allowed me to continue to focus on my love for dance. I have been a Scottish Highland Dancer for over 20 years and am a certified instructor. In early 2014, I was given the opportunity to serve as President of the Seattle Highland Dance Association. In an effort to share my passion for Highland dance with others, my next goal is to pursue my judge's certification through Scotland and open a studio in the Seattle area.
From a career perspective, my experience working with families began when I was a teenager working as a babysitter in my neighborhood. I was quickly recruited to be a part time nanny for a family which I stayed with for five years. Ten years later, I am now a tutor for their three boys. Additionally, towards the end of university, I worked as Director of a tutoring center in the Snoqualmie area where I was first introduced to the idea of working with children and families on a professional level. After completing my college degree and working a short stint in IT sales, I knew my heart belonged back in a setting where I could continue to work with families.
As Florida transplant to Seattle, I am excited be a part of the CNT family! I coordinate Back Up Care Advantage placement and focus on improving the family experience at CNT. I have a wide variety of professional experience in both the non-profit and corporate spheres. My career has always focused on kids, families, and education, in particular arts education. Since the age of 16 I have taught drama education for young artists ages 3-18. Besides my CNT work, I can be found in schools and theatres around Seattle and the Eastside, honing my craft as a teacher, designer, and director.
