This family is no stranger to the past year bringing about a lot of change. A few years ago they relocated their family of 6 from Manhattan to Nashville, but they’re here, settled, and immersed in their new city! Both mom and dad have demanding C level jobs, and they can’t be active in the day to day management of the home, cue the Family Assistant! The family is in need of a dual role, someone who knows which lightbulb goes where, can schedule, meet, and settle up with a vendor at the home, or can restocking to fridge when things are running low while also being a friendly, engaging caregiver to their kids in the afternoons. They need an eye for detail, a self-starter, a problem solver, a proactive communicator, and someone who doesn’t only know what needs to be done, but fully executes it.
Mornings and mid-day will be for household management things and afternoons are kid focused, making sure the three youngest are where they need to be when they need to be there. Mom needs you to be the person who gets the “I forgot x,y,z” call that is bound to come with this many children and trusts you to make sure you figure it out. The kids kind of run themselves, they are independent and autonomous for the most part, but still need help with things. Pre-kid time will be spent tidying up the kitchen and kid’s rooms, running loads of family laundry, errand running, scheduling a repairman, feeding the dog or managing the family calendar. Afternoons are dedicated to the kids and doing school pick ups, occasional carpool for a friend, getting them to afterschool activities, and making dinner for the kids.
When home, both parents are very involved but due to their demanding careers they make weekends for family time, so they would rarely, if ever, need someone on a weekend. They travel as a family and don’t need anyone to come along either. They’re the perfect balance of Midwest values meets NYC dreams and it’s landed them here in this new home in Nashville. They hope to find their missing piece who will allow their family to keep functioning by taking on all things family management Monday – Friday. Their dream would be to keep you until their last child walks across the stage with a diploma in hand!
