The Mulberry Agency is a boutique agency specializing in the referral of educated, experienced, well-rounded, prescreened nannies on a long-term basis.

At the Mulberry Agency, we believe that hiring an exceptional nanny is an important investment in your child’s future. Nannies are more than just caretakers; they are counselors, role models and a direct expression of your family’s values. An educated, articulate, and accomplished nanny can reinforce and enhance what parents instill in their children while they are with them. We’ve made it our mission to find nannies that bring experience and enthusiasm from their own personal pursuits to your children and your home.

Let us find a wonderful nanny for your family.





Patrice Novkov - Founder Mulberry Nanny Agency PATRICE NOVKOV

Patrice discovered her personal calling for childcare at an early age and has been passionate about caring for kids ever since.

Born and raised on a farm in North Florida, Patrice prides herself in being a small-town girl with strong family values and a solid work ethic. Even during college, Patrice still found time to spend with kids, working as a nanny nights and weekends. So when she moved to New York and was offered a job as a nanny for a high-profile, celebrity Mom, she jumped at the offer. Seasoned by the active lifestyle requirements of a busy professional, Ms. Novkov has particular insight into what families with demanding careers and travel schedules require.

Patrice knows how to spot a phenomenal nanny because she’s been one herself. Combine her years of experience as a professional nanny with her education and business knowledge (in addition to having a BA she also attended law school) and you have an expert nanny placement specialist. She has everything it takes to guide both families and nannies through the “matchmaking” process.

“We seek out nannies who show an extra level of commitment, education and experience, to ensure our quality of care always reflects our hard-earned reputation for excellence in the nanny industry.” - Patrice
