First time mother, former career nanny, and entrepreneur Lacey Ware is the founder of Kindred. In addition to receiving her Masters of Public Health from the University of Kentucky (GO CATS!), Lacey was a well-respected nanny for more than 10 years in the Bluegrass. Now a mother herself, she understands even more the importance of finding someone you can trust who will help provide the best care for your little ones. Being both a nanny and owning a nanny agency, Lacey realized there was a great need for families and nannies to connect with one another. Her love of community and helping others connect sparked the idea for a nanny agency that went above the traditional standards – providing families and nannies a reliable source for connecting and having the tools for a successful foundation are paramount with each of her placements. Lacey has taken her experience and expertise and created Kindred – a place for families and nannies to connect and feel confident with each placement! Lacey is the “go-to” for in-home childcare in the Bluegrass and is excited to be helping families and nannies in her community.
"My passion is helping people, specifically families and nannies looking for the perfect fit. My favorite part of being in this industry is when a family finds a nanny who becomes an extension of their family!”
Lacey Ware, Founder of Kindred
