2011 International Nanny Association Nanny of the Year

Introducing INA's 2011 Nanny Of The Year™, Marcia Hall of Milwaukee, Wisconsin
Marcia Hall has been working with children and families for the past fifteen years. She is a Certified Professional Nanny, an INA Cre­dentialed Nanny, a 3-time nominee for the International Nanny Association Nanny of the Year award and an ACPI Certified Coach for Families. Marcia is a graduate of the English Nanny and Governess School (1997) and of the Academy of Coaching Parents International (2010) and has served as a certified minister, children’s ministry director and foster parent. Marcia also serves as a leader of the Northshore Professional Nanny Alliance.

Marcia resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, with her husband Scott and their 2-year­old daughter Nadia, whom they adopted days after birth. Marcia believes that the knowledge she has gained through becoming a parent is invaluable to her career. She now understands on a deeper level the stress and emotions parents face as they make decisions and raise their children.

Marcia considers being a nanny more than a job. She views it as her calling. Every day she wakes up excited to go to work, ready to play, teach, care for and love on her charges. Marcia’s past employers describe her as “a partner in caring for our children,” “a resource for sound, solid parenting advice” and “an integral to all of our lives.”

In her years of nanny experience, Marcia has cared for children aged newborn to teen and has worked with children who have special needs. Marcia feels honored to have seen many of her charges through becoming a big brother or sister and helping instruct families who were struggling with discipline and behavioral issues.

Marcia currently nannies full-time for a family with two children, an 8-year-old boy and a 4-year-old girl. She feels fortunate she’s able to have the best of both worlds, bringing her own child to work with her while making a positive difference in the life of her nanny family.

Marcia recently launched her own business, Strong Roots Family Coaching because she believes that all children are born with great potential. It's her desire to continue help children discover their gifts and help their parents find the best ways to nurture, support and encourage them through both her nanny and coaching careers.
