Brooke Barousse is passionate about helping families. For the past 12 years, she has placed hundreds of Nannies and household staff members with families throughout southern California. She’s affectionately been called "The Nanny Matchmaker" and the "Nanny Whisperer" because of her ability to communicate a family’s needs to household support staff and is equally skilled in helping Nannies communicate their needs appropriately with their employers.
Barousse says, “I have an instinct for reading people which has resulted in a high success rate for what is essentially personality matchmaking for my clients and their newly hired household staff. I can see where skills and energies mesh—and where they don’t. We educate our nannies and other household staff members to set them up as consummate professionals and our one-month guarantee ensures that we have happy clients.”
She understands the unique relationship families have with those who work inside their home. Not only is a household staffing position one of the most trusted jobs a person can have, but it is one that has the potential to be the glue that keeps things running smoothly, efficiently and happily—both in raising joyful, supported children and in keeping a clean, well-run household.
Being based in Los Angeles comes with its own rare set of talents that are required of her nannies, which are trained to handle situations that only a celebrity client might require, such as handling the paparazzi.
Her previous experience at a Household staffing agency, a boutique corporate staffing office, as well as the proud owner of a non-toxic cleaning service, have given her the insight and background to problem solve and be a resource for clients, and truly understand the requirements of caring for the most precious things in their lives—their children and their homes.
A self-proclaimed information sponge, Barousse also has a personal affinity for trivia and has appeared on a number of game shows over the years, including “Family Feud,” “Press Your Luck” and “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader."
