How Hilton Head Nannies Was Started
Ms. Krogulski was a professional nanny who traveled the country for many years working with families of many different backgrounds and with many different needs. She has also worked in churches, served in the mission field, in teaching positions in both elementary and preschools, and in the dormitories of boarding schools. She came here to interview with a family and knew the first time she crossed the bridges to Hilton Head Island and met the two beautiful children she would be nannying for that she was "home".
Over the years, she has fallen in love with the Lowcountry, the people here, and has become well established in the community that she cares so much about. She is still very close with the family she moved here to work for and has also become "Jen-Jen" to many other children in the area along the way.
How Lowcountry Nannies Came to Be
In 2014, Jennie formed Lowcountry Nannies, an umbrella company and expanded outward into the State of South Carolina.
