David’s Client Featured in National Northwestern Mutual Commercial

We are beyond excited to announce our client Ryan Jordan and her company Educated Nannies are being featured in Northwestern Mutual’s most recent commercials. Ryan is an extraordinary mom and business owner. She founded Educated Nannies; an award-winning Los Angeles full-service nanny agency, seven years ago. She and her team match families with highly skilled nannies to ensure children are learning, thriving and having fun. Since the beginning she’s championed successful, respectful, and legally compliant employee/employer partnerships.

Due to COVID-19 and the resulting changes at many schools, parents have been faced with a new set of challenges. Ryan’s team has risen to the occasion and is helping families find private educators so that children can flourish. Educated Nannies takes a personalized approach to care and this team of women is always willing to answer your questions. We are so thankful that Ryan allowed us to share a part of her story.

Check out the commercial and then see more information about the story below:
