About the President

One common pain point that many parents express is the anxiety of entrusting their children to strangers, particularly when it comes to their safety and well-being. They worry about whether the caregiver is capable of handling emergencies or providing appropriate care in various situations.

As a mom myself, and someone with a degree in social work and 18+ years of experience working for Child Protective Services, I’ve gained a profound understanding of the critical need for compassionate and competent care for children. Through my work, I’ve witnessed firsthand the challenges faced by families in the foster care system and the broader community.

Recognizing this need, I founded The Nanny Loft in 2016 with a vision to bridge this gap by providing families with dedicated and competent caregivers they can trust. We prioritize ensuring that they are compassionate and capable of handling any situation that may arise while caring for your children.

My promise to you is grounded in our unwavering commitment to ensuring the safety and well-being of your children. At The Nanny Loft, we hold ourselves to the highest standards when it comes to selecting caregivers for your family. Our stringent vetting process goes above and beyond industry standards to provide peace of mind to families. We conduct thorough background checks, verify professional references, and conduct detailed interviews to ensure that every caregiver we recommend meets our highest standards of competence and reliability. And our rigorous screening process is designed to leave no stone unturned. We meticulously examine every aspect of a caregiver’s background, from their criminal history to their professional references. Each candidate undergoes detailed interviews and verifications to ensure they possess the necessary skills, experience, and temperament to provide exceptional care for your children.

With The Nanny Loft, you can rest assured knowing that your children are in the hands of trustworthy professionals who are dedicated to their safety and well-being. We’re here to provide you with the support and peace of mind you need as a parent, allowing you to thrive knowing that your children are in good hands. We understand the trust you place in us when you invite a caregiver into your home, and we take that responsibility seriously.

Rachelle Gershkovich

Rachelle Gershkovich

Rachelle was 17 when she realized she had a gift for nurturing and soothing infants while also getting them to sleep longer. She began working part-time as a night nanny through her sister’s nannying agency and continued this work through college. As a nanny, Rachelle realized that infants often can sense anxiety in their parents and caregivers. She learned how to reset her own internal nervous system to reach a real sense of calm, so she could help the infant do the same. Most nannies, doulas, and infant care specialists get their insights from having their own children. Rachelle, however, was able to develop a specialized approach that works for every baby through her infant care working with many diverse families and children.

Through nursing courses, Rachelle discovered the undeniable value of nutrition and switched her major to Human Nutrition and Dietetics at Metropolitan State University of Denver. Combining her experience with new parents, babies, nannying, and nutrition, she was able to bring a restful night’s sleep to every home. After graduation, she officially founded Maternal Instincts in 2010. Rachelle has served over 5,000 families through her sleep groups and as a night nanny, newborn care specialist, doula, and sleep specialist. She has worked with newborns, multiples, and high-risk infants. Rachelle has supported families who were dealing with heart surgery recovery, feeding tubes, oxygen, colic, allergies, reflux, and more! Today, with nearly a decade of service through Maternal Instincts, Rachelle’s goal is to end sleep deprivation for babies AND parents, and to make parenthood a more restful, harmonious, and loving experience.

Gabriella G


Hello, families! My name is Gabriella, and I am currently studying Biology Education! I have five years of formal babysitting/nannying experience, with many more years of caring for my younger siblings and cousins. I have experience with all age groups, with most experience at the early and late elementary age. As a future educator, I also have abundant tutoring experience (K-12) and am more than happy to help with any educational needs! I never shy away from light housework, meal prep, transportation, pet-sitting, etc, so don’t be afraid to ask!



Hi, I’m Summer! I am a college student. I have been babysitting for six years and love hanging out with and caring for kids.


My name is Samantha. I am a single mother of three sons. My two sons are adopted from Colombia, South America. I have an Early Childhood Education degree and a Social Work degree. I have worked in child welfare, foster care, adoption, and mental health. I was a stay-at-home mother for fourteen years. My middle son has mild autism and ADHD. I am very knowledgeable about resources in the community and the Lehigh Valley area. For the past four years, I have worked as an intervention teacher for a local school district and supported children in learning support classrooms.



Enthusiastic & diligent caregiver to children of all ages & abilities! Available weekday afternoons and evenings. Eight years of experience with special needs individuals. Pet Friendly.



Starting with experience in babysitting and watching my younger cousins and sisters, my passion for working with kids grew into a career goal. I went to DeSales University and graduated with a BS in Computer Science. Though I had a degree in the design field, I felt the pull to the caregiving field. I decided to get my clearances and try out working in the preschool system. After about two years of this, I sought a better ratio.I believe that children thrive when given more attention and the tools needed to turn struggles into stepping stones. 


I’ve lived in the Lehigh Valley area for almost my entire life and have gotten to know the community and local centers well through leisure, work, and volunteer time. I have a big, cuddle monster dog who loves running around and playing outside more than any treat in the world. And to finish this off, here’s a new word of the day: eclectic, and it means to have views, ideas, tastes, and styles deriving from all over, and I think if you need a word to describe me, that’s the one!
