The Nanny Poppins Agency was founded 24 years ago by Jennifer Bouchard and April Berube, in Marblehead, MA, where Jennifer had grown up. Jennifer and her longtime best friend saw the increasing need for qualified, pre-screened nanny and household staff in the Boston area. Jennifer’s background in journalism, working as an intern reporter on multiple newspapers, coming from a family in law-enforcement, and working in various households as a nanny and household manager, turned out to be the key to the agency’s success. Leaving no stone unturned when getting to know her client’s needs, Jennifer excelled at interviewing and vetting candidates and quickly became one of the most well-known and trusted domestic staffing agents in New England. This, in turn, launched the Nanny Poppins Agency as one of the most well-known and respected agencies in New England.
As the agency quickly grew due to hard work and a commitment to providing the highest level of service, it was soon contacted by many reporters and media outlets. The Nanny Poppins Agency was repeatedly featured on Boston Channel 7 News throughout the last week of 1999 about the demand for New Year’s Eve nanny requests. Jennifer and April were interviewed, featured and quoted multiple times by the Boston Globe and Herald, The Marblehead Reporter, The Jewish Journal, North Shore Magazine, The Salem Evening News, The Beverly Times, and numerous other New England publications.The Nanny Poppins Agency was an overnight media sensation.
Determined to be the best and provide only the highest level of service to its clients, the agency continued to improve its placement processes, going above and beyond the training and services provided by typical agencies. Jennifer and her team worked directly with a multi-state private detective firm to become skilled in the particulars of background and reference checking, techniques that they continue to hone and use today providing the most comprehensive background checks available in the industry. In 2009, due to popular demand, the Nanny Poppins Agency expanded placements beyond New England and, since that time, has been making successful placements all over the United States.
