On Tuesday January 21, 2014, Glenda Propst of Nanny Transitions and former Development Team Member of Regarding Nannies announced THREE Scholarship opportunities for nannies to come to this year’s INA Conference.
Marni Kent who is the 2002 INA Nanny of the Year is providing the three scholarships this year. Two of them will be for nannies who have NEVER been to conference before and one will be for an existing nanny member. Marni shares her story of how she found Nanny Transitions to be a great resource during her time of job transition.
When I reached out to a friend/ peer when I was going through a difficult time in life (Glenda Propst the owner of Nanny Transitions) she gave me advice that at the moment did not fit all of what I was going through but on down the road it clicked.
Eventually I realized that there are some stages of transition that apply whether the transition is work or personal.
