OUR PHILOSOPHY
“Happy family with a nanny” is our motto. How do we achieve that you ask? We are a team of eager and knowledgeable staff ready to assess your childcare needs, and we carefully screen and identify the top caregivers in the PNW to find someone that compliments your unique family. Rebecca’s vision to create an agency with unsurpassed customer service and a commitment to placing qualified and trusted in-home care has thrived since its conception in 1994. Today we are the industry leader in placing nannies, newborn care specialists, and household professionals.

Rebecca Dyk Owner/Founder

  • Raised in the city by entrepreneurial parents, Rebecca broke the mold and defected to the country where she now runs a small black Angus cattle ranch.
  • At 22 as a Nanny, Rebecca started the company because her doctor was pregnant and asked the right questions!
  • Rebecca’s personal role model is the pioneer woman.
  • As horses are Rebecca’s family sport, she and all of the kids compete—Rebecca’s teenage girls rodeo, and her toddler son claims to be a future bull and bronc rider.
  • While Rebecca loves to rock the cowboy boots, she refuses to give up her city style, faithfully visiting Starbucks and Nordstrom.

Kristin Tillack Director

  • As an outdoor enthusiast, Kristin subjects her two kids to the frigid outdoors, whether they like it or not—so far they do!
  • Kristin has a degree in Child Development from Point Loma in San Diego and a Master’s Degree in Business from Seattle U.
  • While originally from sunny Southern California, Kristin loves the Seattle rain and now calls the PNW home.
  • Dress-up parties, game nights, karaoke, and slow nature walks with her 1 year-old are just a few of Kristin’s favorite pastimes.
  • Since Kristin can’t travel to her favorite country (Italy) as often as she wishes, she makes up for it by eating pizza on a weekly basis.

Abbie MacRae Placement/Recruiter

  • Abbie is known as the “baby whisperer,” babysitting her way through Middle School, High School, and College.
  • While Abbie’s professional title is Recruiter, her proudest title is Aunt to her four adorable nieces and nephews.
  • As a volunteer Young Life leader on Mercer Island, Abbie enjoys spending time with and mentoring High School girls.
  • Abbie graduated from Central Washington University with a B.A. in Psychology, minoring in Interdisciplinary Honors Studies.
  • Often called an amateur chef amongst her friends, Abbie loves hosting dinner parties to try out new dishes.

Danielle Downey Corporate & Temporary Placement Director

  • Born and raised in the PNW, so naturally Danielle LOVES the rain, coffee and fall.
  • Danielle currently resides in Everett, WA with her husband, her two wonderful daughters and her dog!
  • Professionally, Danielle has worked in the medical field for almost 10 years and almost every position she held allowed her to be surrounded with and care for children, and it was not by accident!
  • As Danielle’s career advanced, she found herself most enjoying administrative work that focuses on the betterment of families and kids.
  • Danielle sought out A Nanny for U for a shift in her professional career path and it has been a perfect fit!
  • When she isn’t with the A Nanny for U team, you can find Danielle baking yummy treats in her kitchen for her kids to gobble up, going to farmers markets, heading out on hiking/camping adventures with the family, or singing harmonies of cover songs with her best friend and making YouTube videos!

Lexi Biondi Office Manager/Placement Assistant
