Ashley took time to learn about our family’s needs and provided us with several qualified candidates. She was extremely responsive, happily addressing any questions or concerns we had about the candidates/process and acting quickly to help us set up interviews. We are new to the process of hiring a nanny and found Ashley’s support invaluable. From drafting the posting to sorting through contract details, Ashley’s guidance helped us immensely.
