[Easemakers Podcast E20] Growing from nanny to household and estate manager

Are you in a nanny or family assistant role, aspiring to be an estate manager? In this episode of the Easemakers Podcast, an estate manager shares how she grew from nanny to household manager as her principals' needs changed.

By Kristin Twiford

Brianna has spent her entire career in private service — but over the years, she’s grown and evolved, right alongside her principals’ families. She started out as a nanny and a family assistant, but knew someone needed to take on the role of managing the household.

She started taking on more and more, and over time, she became an estate manager. For the last 10 years, she’s worked with the same family, but her role has changed completely.

In the latest episode of the Easemakers Podcast, Brianna shares the story of how she went from nanny to estate manager, and how she’s navigated that growth path while staying with the same principals.

Tune in to hear:

  • Why Brianna knew something in the household needed to change
