Our fourth and final Partial year INA membership goes to Carli.
This is what she had to say about who has mentored her along the way in her professional nanny career:

When I started nannying in 1997, I didn’t even know I was a nanny! Where I lived, there were no nannies. I considered myself to be babysitting these kids full time. Online, I met a woman named Susan who lived on the other side of the state, who clued me in that..duh..I was a nanny! Long story short, it was Susan who introduced me to the nanny life. Taught me about contracts, taxes,car usage, etc. Through her I became a member of my first nanny support group, NAN. She had created a yahoogroup for local nannies, and in the end I ended up taking a job near her and we have been friends for over 10 years now. While Susan is no longer working as a nanny, she was in the profession for over 10 years and I do credit her for my 12 year (so far!) nanny career.
Carli congratulations on winning the INA partial year membership! Please contact us by Tuesday to get your membership! regardingnannies at gmail dot com
