It was as a trainer and the sole recruiter for Johnson and Johnson pharmaceuticals in the state of Florida, that Debbie honed her skills at interviewing. It is a talent that has been instrumental in helping her choose only the most qualified candidates for Class Act Nannies – a premier nanny agency in Miami.
After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, Debbie taught high school English for two years before joining Johnson & Johnson, where she worked for 8 years. Debbie served as Vice President of Programming at Bet Shira Congregation and currently sits on the Board of Directors. She now serves on the Miami-Dade School Attendance Boundary Committee. When not helping other families, she supports her children’s love of drama, basketball and photography.
Married 17 years, Debbie and her husband, Danny, a commercial real estate executive, live in Pinecrest with a thirteen year old daughter, Kyla, ten year old son, Jordan, and boston terrier, Lucy. The youngest of three, she was born and raised in Smithtown, New York where she lived with her parents, Norma and Lee, and brother and sister, David and Michelle.
Jennifer truly understands the importance of helping others. She donates her time to the Community Partnership For The Homeless, was chairwoman of the Young Philanthropists for Sylvester Comprehensive Cancer Center (YPS), served on the Temple Beth Am School Board, and currently serves as a co-chair and middle school liason for the Parent Ambassador Program at Gulliver Academy. All in addition to her work with Class Act Nannies.
Born and raised in New York City, Jennifer moved to Miami in 1994 where she obtained her Master of Science in Elementary Education. She spent the next seven years teaching at Temple Beth Am Day School. Even after leaving teaching to start her own family, her love of children kept her working as an elementary school tutor and helped inspire her to start Class Act Nannies, a leading nanny agency in Miami, with Debbie Finkle in 2007.
Jen has 2 wonderful children – thirteen year old, Jessica, and ten-year old son, Scott. Their family also consists of two dogs, Belini and Lola, who live in the Pinecrest section of Miami.
