Lisa Marie Skillman / Owner / President / Child Care Professional
Lisa Skillman grew up in the small town of Millstone, New Jersey. After graduating high school she took an opportunity to move out of state to attend Mary Baldwin College in Staunton, Virginia, where she obtained a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Administration and Marketing Communications in 2005. During high school and college, Lisa supplemented her income working as a babysitter and nanny, where she discovered a love of caring for children.
After working as a paralegal in downtown Charlottesville for a few years, Lisa realized that her forte was working with children so she pursued her Master’s Degree in Teaching, receiving her Certification for K – 6th Grade. With the unfortunate downturn in the economy and cut-backs in teaching, Lisa turned to a full-time nanny career. During her time as a nanny to a Charlottesville family, she often accompanied them to engagement parties, graduations, weddings, and other events. It was apparent to Lisa that although parents wanted their children to be included in these important events, it was stressful juggling their children’s needs while trying to enjoy themselves and relax. It was then that Lisa envisioned Local Nanny Network as a solution for parents. Her background in both business and teaching – and her passion for children – has helped Lisa build a solid foundation. Local Nanny Network, with a team of experienced, professional, first-rate nannies at the ready, offers parents an onsite reliable, caring and safe environment for their children so they may enjoy stress-free time with their family and friends at social events.
