About Us

Unparalleled Service. Unrivaled results.

Over 25 years ago, as a professional nanny herself, Rebecca Dyk had an insider’s view into the needs of both families and nannies.

Many hard-working families so badly needed quality support but half-hearted matching services were not cutting it. The frustration for families and the need for a reliable, professional solution was glaring. So in 1994, Rebecca launched A Nanny for U and started offering unprecedented qualified and trustworthy in-home care in the Seattle area.

Through the years, her determination for quality results has led to the development of an unparalleled matching and screening process. Our team of eager and knowledgeable staff advocate for both sides, while thoroughly getting to know our families and nannies. We spend countless hours on hundreds of applicants, interviews, calls and screenings until we find the best possible match for everyone.

Rebecca Dyk

OWNER/FOUNDER

Hard work, determination and a unique ability to discern people were all gifts that Rebecca inherited from her entrepreneurial parents. Raised in the city, she broke the mold and defected to the country where she now runs a small black Angus cattle ranch.

At the age of 22, as a professional nanny herself, Rebecca Dyk had an insider’s view into the needs of both families and nannies. Many hard-working families (including her own doctor!) so badly needed quality support but half-hearted matching services were not cutting it. The frustration for families and the need for a reliable, professional solution was glaring. So in 1994, Rebecca launched A Nanny for U and started offering unprecedented qualified and trustworthy in-home care in the Seattle area.

When she’s not making matches for families and nannies across Seattle, she’s making memories with her family riding horses or running the ranch in the country.

While Rebecca loves wearing cowboy boots, she refuses to give up her city style, faithfully visiting Starbucks and Nordstrom.

Hayley Reeves

TEMPORARY & BACKUP CARE COORDINATOR

Born in Dallas, Texas, Hayley and her family moved to Maple Valley, WA where she grew up and went to school.

She graduated from Western Washington University with her BA in Political Science.

Hayley craves new experiences and adventures and enjoys remodeling homes with her boyfriend, backpacking in the mountains, or relaxing on their boat on Lake Washington. 

She’s also not opposed to a night in on the couch with takeout. 

Bethany Letcher

RECRUITER 

Bethany was born and raised in Maple Valley which is where she met her high school sweetheart and they have been inseparable ever since.  

She received her bachelor’s degree in Recreation and Tourism from Central Washington University, with a focus on Event Planning and Hospitality. 

She and her husband currently reside in Liberty Lake, Washington and you will most likely find them enjoying weekend getaways, home improvement projects, golfing, and hiking. That is when they aren’t spending time with family and friends or enjoying the delicious craft beer and wine our beautiful state has to offer. 

Hailey Minor

MARKETING & SOCIAL MEDIA

Hailey grew up in Oregon and graduated with a degree as a dental hygienist.

She thrives on a busy lifestyle with many irons in the fire. You can find her working, raising babies, spending time with family, or riding their horses.

Her guilty pleasure is putting the kids down to bed and enjoying ice cream for dinner.  

Kaylee Stevie

CLIENT RELATIONS

Kaylee was raised on a farm in the Midwest where she developed her love for hard work and good people. She married a boy she met when she was 4 and they now have 3 kids and live in Ellensburg.  

She’s had the privilege of homeschooling them while owning a photography business. Kaylee and her husband have a passion for the outdoors that they have passed down to their kids which means that’s most likely where you’d find them. Nothing quite makes her happy like being behind an apron or a camera, or in a river with a fly rod (when she’s lucky).
