I am a graduate from the University of Minnesota with a degree in Child Psychology. I began my career as the administrator of an early childhood learning center and worked to provide quality child care and education to children. I truly enjoyed being an important part of their lives every day, along with being a mentor and leader to my team of teachers. After many years I decided it was time for a change and went on an adventure with Disney Cruise Line as their Manager of Youth Activities. I led a large team of Youth Counselors from around the world as we provided the Disney experience to kids and traveled the globe.
I have been working with College Nannies, Sitters and Tutors since November of 2013. I am passionate about helping families find their optimal childcare or tutoring solution and seeing the great impact it has. I'm often out in the community talking to people about CNS+T and spreading the word about this wonderful company. I look forward to doing my part in helping to build stronger families in the St. Paul area.
My name is Cindy and I am the Role Model Manager of the St. Paul office. I was born and raised in Virginia, Minnesota. I graduated from the University of St. Thomas with a Business Marketing degree. Before coming to College Nannies and Tutors in December of 2012, I had worked for Sew What, a local tailoring and alterations company in the Twin Cities for the past 24 years. I came to College Nannies and Tutors looking for a job where I felt I could make a difference. I have always enjoyed working with young adults and feel that this job allows me to be a mentor for our nannies and tutors as they transition from college to their future careers.
My name is Julia and I am the Recruiting Manager. I am a graduate of Metropolitan State University with a bachelor's degree in Finance but have a true passion for meeting youth where they are at and encouraging success. Prior to joining the team at College Nannies, Sitters, and Tutors, I worked for the YMCA of the Greater Twin Cities in the Aquatics department for 8 years. During my time there, I developed youth, strengthened the community, and mentored a team of all ages. I am looking forward to connecting with potential applicants, creating relationships, and building stronger families.
I am a graduate of the University of Minnesota and Queen's University with advanced degrees in History. An academic by training, I have found that my real passion is education at every level, from pre-k to college and beyond. Before beginning at College Nannies Sitters and Tutors of St. Paul, I taught University courses, provided academic support to special education students at several charter schools in St. Paul, and learned the hard way that excellence in education is not an innate characteristic, but a skill to be learned and cherished. In my position as Learning Center Manager, I bring my passion for education, my thirst for knowledge, and my absolute belief that every child deserves an exceptional education. Give me a call - I'd love to talk to you about how our tutors can help your children reach their educational goals!
Hi, my name is Annastazia Harriott but I mostly go by Zia! I am a rising sophomore at Macalester college in Saint Paul who is majoring in Neuroscience with a concentration in Psychology and a minor in French as well as Religious Studies. I was born in Jamaica but have spent most of my life with my family in Wisconsin. Besides school I like to be involved in a lot of clubs and sports. I used to be a dancer but am now on Macalester's Womens Ultimate Frisbee team as well as taking karate classes (I just passed my orange belt test!). I love to do arts and crafts but I am a very outdoorsy person, I love to bike, hike, longboard, swim, etc.
I've worked with kids for 5+ years now and I love it! I have a good amount of experience with all age groups (infant-teenage), but I've spent most of my time working with children 5 and under. Some words kids have used to describe me in the past are fun, loving, awesome, and a pretty princess! I hope you decided to choose me as your nanny/sitter and I look forward to meeting you in the future!

I graduated in 2006 from the University of Minnesota with a BA in Individualized Studies with focuses in Education, Youth Studies and English. During my service learning volunteering at the English Learning Center- Children’s Program, I discovered a passion for working with children in an educational setting. I especially loved the challenge of finding creative, unconventional ways to teach concepts to struggling students. Later, I was diagnosed with ADHD and became a peer leader in an ADHD support group on campus. Here I shared and learned alternative ways to learn and study. I continue to use these strategies with all my students at all grade levels. There is more than one way to learn and the student needs to find what works best for them.
