2024 Conference


Christa Nader

INA 2024 Conference Speaker

Christa is an advocate, educator, and founder, working in the industries that support childrearing for the past two decades. Born and raised in Erie, PA, she obtained her Bachelors of Arts in Early Childhood Education from the University of Texas Arlington, and taught in public schools for the first few years of her career. Upon moving to New York City, she transitioned to providing care as a nanny and private educator, eventually founding and selling her own nanny agency, KITH & KIN Household Staffing Agency. She has served on the Board of Directors of the International Nanny Association, and has been quoted in The New York Times, CNN, The Lily by Washington Post, as well as featured on several podcasts and in nanny industry collectives. Melding her ability to forge strong relationships with her experience in the staffing realm, she enthusiastically joined GTM Payroll Services as the Agency Partner Manager in 2023. She seeks to be curious, courageous, loyal, and kind, but is really just a regular ol’ human stumbling through life, clinging to fresh air upstate, walks with her dogs, dwelling in maximum silly-mode with her daughter, while beautifying her Brooklyn neighborhood with her block association, and leaning on the kinship of her family and friends.

Find Your Voice: Handling Tricky Conversations with Confidence and Fairness

We’ve all been there: You’re close with your boss and normally willing to jump in when needed, but recently you’ve noticed more and more non-childcare expectations have crept up and now you’re stuck! You’re trialing for that perfect job, but now they’ve thrown a new requirement your way and you’re not sure how to professionally and tactfully discuss your thoughts without losing the job. Your nanny-kid has been having a pattern of challenging behaviors and you’re worried your boss’ approach isn’t working. How can you clearly communicate your concerns with respect while simultaneously supporting the relationship? We’ll discuss practical strategies and provide verbiage to utilize, equipping you to handle these conversations with confidence, fairness, and positivity!
