I took over as the President of The Nanny Network in 2006. At that time, I had experience in the business world but more importantly, I had experience as a working mom. As a result, I had a sincere interest in helping other busy parents find quality childcare, a challenge that I knew firsthand. The stress of leaving your child(ren) at home in someone else’s care can be overwhelming, and finding someone who you can trust sometimes seems like an impossible task. I am happy to say I have employed wonderful nannies (found through The Nanny Network!) that have provided excellent care for my own three children.

Before buying the agency, I worked in the investment management industry as a research analyst, and also worked for a recruiting company. I analyzed a lot of different businesses during that time before realizing that I wanted to run a company of my own. My background as a team captain (Colgate women’s lacrosse!), and my ensuing passion for eliminating the gender wage gap and increasing the number of women in leadership, made The Nanny Network the perfect fit. Here I get to help parents each and every day to pursue their career goals, knowing that their children are safe and well cared for. And that gives me a great deal of satisfaction.

I was honored to be named to the APNA board in 2015 and am a loyal volunteer at the Kennedy Krieger Institute here in Baltimore. I received a Bachelor’s degree from Colgate and an MBA from Wharton at the University of Pennsylvania. I love the outdoors, I love sports, and I love spending time with family and friends. Originally from Wilmington, Delaware, I’ve lived in Baltimore now for 20+ years with my husband, and have added 3 kids and some dogs to the mix in the meantime.


Kelly Gregory

Placement Team Manager | Direct Hire

I joined the Nanny Network family in 2019 after five years working as a nanny. I graduated from Notre Dame of Maryland University in 2012 with a B.A. in Liberal Arts with an emphasis in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. After graduating from NDMU, I went onto become the Director at a YMCA Before and Aftercare program, where I worked for 3 years with a variety of school age children. Throughout my career I have dedicated my time to helping children learn and grow. I have always loved caring for children and creating happy memories for them. In my opinion, nannies are an extension of your family; the trust you have in them is important and you always want a quality candidate. As a previous nanny with the Nanny Network I was matched with two wonderful families! Now that I have joined the office team I look forward to helping other nannies and families find what I found with those previous matches!

I was born and raised in Baltimore County, Maryland. My husband and I have two cats named Nessy and Midnight. I have always loved swimming and boating and I take any chance I get to be in or on the water! I love Christmas, singing, cooking, and organizing! I have a passion for helping others and love doing so in my spare time.

I joined The Nanny Network in the spring of 2021 as a Staffing Specialist in the Back-Up Care Department. I graduated from Coastal Carolina University in the winter of 2019 with a B.A in Communications & a Minor in Environmental Studies. However, I am a Maryland native and have lived in the Baltimore area my entire life. I appreciate effective communication which is why I’m excited to aid clients and providers in using Nanny Network services. I’ve worked with families and children as a virtual tutor which has led me to the Nanny Network! In my personal time, I enjoy binging Netflix, supporting local restaurants and spending time with my animals Summer & Oliver.

Director of Recruiting

I began my journey with The Nanny Network in the summer of 2021 as a Staffing Specialist. After graduating from Penn State University in 2018 with a degree in Psychology, I became a military spouse, and have traveled the country with my wonderful husband and beloved dog. Throughout the past 4 years, we have lived in the states of Florida, California and Washington, before finally settling back into our home state of Pennsylvania for good. If my travels have taught me anything, it’s how important it is to have trustworthy people to rely on in times of need. This is why now that I am the Recruiting Manager for our agency, I feel so honored to be a part of the process of finding those trustworthy providers who have the most important job of all, caring for and educating our clients’ children. I take my role very seriously, and it has been so rewarding seeing both nannies and clients alike find the perfect fit through our agency. I like to spend my free time going on hikes, trying out different baking recipes, crocheting, and spoiling my rescue pup.

Director of Staffing

I joined the Nanny Network as a Staffing Assistant in 2022. Coupled with my years of childcare experience, and my desire to improve the lives of others, the Nanny Network was a natural fit for me. I have worked with kids of all ages/backgrounds, and believe my personal experience in the childcare field offers me valuable insight into the lives of our nannies. I have a deep understanding of how integral a nanny is to each family, and will apply that understanding to ensuring you have the best fit. I am a North Carolina native, who has spent enough time in Baltimore to fall hopelessly in love with the Orioles. Let’s go O’s! I also like to read, swim, sing, and play any sport I can get my hands on.

I moved to Baltimore in 2021 and joined the Nanny Network Team in the summer of 2022. I was interested in this role because I understand the hardship of finding quality child care. As a working mother to a young child, I have personal experience which has shown me how important a good support system can be. I am eager to help you in your search! I am currently pursuing a degree in Psychology to have a better understanding of how to help others.

I joined the Nanny Network family in early spring of 2022 as a Staffing Specialist for the Back-Up Care department after graduating from Logan University with a Master’s degree in Healthcare Management. Through my schooling and past careers, I have gained knowledge about quality childcare, teaching, mentoring and customer service. I feel the best services a company can offer are strong communication and transparency, and that is exactly what TNN brings to not only their staff but their clients and caregivers as well! I am excited to work with a company that can continually impact a community in so many ways! In my spare time, you can find me deep in a book, taking dance classes, or spending time with family and friends.
