You're one of the most pleasant companies to work with! I will always recommend you and keep you all in mind. -Catherine Varitek, Georgia
I have used NannyQuest for our household staffing needs for fifteen years. Without fail, they have sent outstandingly qualified candidates our way and have done so in a timely fashion. They do not waste our time by representing mediocre possibilities. -Debi Copeland, House Manager to Arthur Blank
Our family has used NannyQuest several times to find us nannies on short notice. They have never failed to deliver, and we have been delighted with all of the candidates they have sent us. They are a pleasure to work with, and we highly recommend their services. -Bill D., Atlanta
Our experience with Nannyquest was excellent! We moved to Atlanta with 3 young kids, 2 dogs and I knew I needed help. The thought of trying to find someone to help me was daunting. I would have never found candidates with all my requirements on my own! NannyQuest did a great job providing candidates and matching us with a perfect fit for our needs! -V. S. - Sandy Springs
I cannot say enough nice things about NannyQuest. I began working as a nanny after graduating from college. NannyQuest always placed me with outstanding families and they had my best interests at heart. Beth and Jenny care about all of their placements and they strive to make sure that their clients AND their candidates are happy. I own a small business now and I direct all my clients to NannyQuest, as I know they will provide superior services. -Brianna McMillin
Jenny Fitzgerald at NannyQuest has helped us on two occasions find great help. Both employees have stayed with us for years as housekeepers with many duties including cooking, grocery shopping, and anything else I needed. Jenny understood what I wanted and didn't waste time on non-qualified applicants. No one could have done a better job. -D.O. Bowen, Atlanta
Beth placed a live in nanny in our home over 7 years ago when our child was 5. At the time we were not sure what we wanted/needed. We were matched with the absolute best person both in qualifications and on personality fit. We have had very different needs as our son has grown and our nanny has evolved to meet those needs at the various stages. Please let me know if I can give you any other information that might help lend insight to how things work with a live in. We have been very, very happy with our arrangement and think our son has gained tremendously by having the relationship and continuity of a long-term caregiver. -Karen C., Atlanta
Beth has demonstrated the knowledge, experience, and understanding to help place the right person in our home. I have been extremely pleased with her personal attention to our situation. We have hired two nannies in over seven years through Nannyquest. Both have formed lasting relationships with our children and continue to see them as they grow up. I couldn't be happier! -SG, Atlanta
Beth and the NannyQuest team were so incredibly helpful and supportive to us during a time of huge transition in our lives. We had just made a move from California with a one year old and a two year old, leaving behind a Mary Poppins type of nanny (we were heartbroken to leave her!) who had been with us since our oldest was born. At the time I was looking for a nanny we had just been in Atlanta for a few months and had a short-term nanny leave us abruptly. Both my husband and I work and travel and our lives were turned upside down. That is when Nanny Quest stepped in. Beth spent so much time with me asking the right questions about our children, our family and our expectations in a nanny. She listened, was thoughtful and responsive. She hung in there with me as I interviewed many nannies to get to the one that worked for us. Beth is warm, understanding and trustworthy.
We so appreciate Beth and Nanny Quest for their support during this crazy time in life. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a quality nanny. -Jenn in Atlanta

Elizabeth Walsh is the founder of NannyQuest. Elizabeth grew up in Kingsport, Tennessee. She attended Emory & Henry College in Virginia; graduating Cum Laude with a major in English and a minor in Education. After teaching kindergarten, she directed an Atlanta private preschool for 10 years, interviewing and hiring teachers, managing curriculum, and assuring that all children were nurtured in mind, body and spirit. Beth says, "In this position, I met many nannies who were employed by the families of Atlanta. Some were outstanding, others were not. I decided to provide parents with a source for educated nannies...candidates who would provide a good role model for children with their speech patterns, values, and lifestyles. Also, as a mother of five, I am concerned about the quality of childcare available. I know what I am looking for and I am very selective."
It was an idea whose time had come. NannyQuest quickly became the leading nanny referral agency in Atlanta. The NannyQuest reputation has been spread by satisfied clients to most of the larger cities in the United States.
When they are not working, Beth and her husband Neil spend as much time as possible in their log home in the North Georgia mountains, where they enjoy fly-fishing, perennial gardening, and being the grandparents of eight brilliant grandchildren!

Whether our client is in Hawaii, Arkansas, New York or Atlanta, they can be assured of complete professionalism and prompt attention to detail. "If we don't have it, we'll find it!" has become a working promise from Jenny.
Jenny grew up and went to school in Bellefontaine, Ohio, but has lived in the Atlanta area for 30 years. She and her husband Don have two grown sons and five amazing grandchildren. When she is not working, you will find Jenny in the kitchen, cooking fantastic food, or with her grandchildren at the baseball fields, gymnastic events and/or taking care of her three (count them!) bulldogs.
