“The International Nanny Association was so very fortunate to have Kathy Gruhn speak at our 2012 Annual Conference. She tailored her talk especially to our nanny audience and attendees came away with real, practical and fun tools that they can use to help boost brain development in the children for whom they care. A passionate and polished professional, I would recommend Kathy to speak at any event.” –Michelle LaRowe, Executive Director, INA Membership Services
