Lydia M. Brown, Founder

Lydia has over 17 years of experience as a professional nanny, household manager, teacher, coach, and camp counselor in the Chicagoland area. Lydia obtained her Bachelor's Degree in Business Administration from the University of Illinois at Chicago and spent several years working in finance immediately after graduating. In 2015, her passion to teach and inspire children of all ages led her to launch Chicago Collegiate Nannies. 

During her time as a nanny, it became clear that the families she worked with were looking for more than the typical nanny—someone who performs light housekeeping, makes dinner, and supervises without much focus on engaging the children. These families wanted knowledgeable, dynamic, and experienced individuals to engage their children and actively encourage their development. 

Chicago Collegiate Nannies provides a unique type of nanny—one who is college-educated, energetic, and dedicated to nurturing the young minds of tomorrow. Lydia is extremely passionate about CCN's mission and the amazing nannies and families that the agency works with.
