The International Nanny Association (INA) is delighted to announce that the 2014 Nanny of the Year (NOTY) honor was awarded to Sheri Lopez, a 32 year veteran nanny from Scottsdale, Arizona.
Sheri received the prestigious title this past weekend at INA’s annual conference NOTY luncheon, held this year at the Hilton in Los Angeles.
As always, the NOTY selection committee was presented with many qualified nominees. All nominees have outstanding work histories, employer accolades and a demonstrated commitment to professionalism. The committee’s decision was a difficult one and every nominee exceptional. In the end, there can be only one and this year that ‘one,’ was Sheri Lopez.
Sheri Lopez’s career spans more than 3 decades. She demonstrates an ongoing commitment to furthering her education, is the first to volunteer to share her knowledge, skills and wisdom, and is a tireless volunteer both in the nanny industry and in her community. Sheri displays an overwhelming dedication to professionalism and support of the nanny industry. An amazing leader, Sheri is role model for all nannies to look up to in the coming year.
In addition to her nanny career, Sheri volunteers her time as a Court Appointed Special Advocate(CASA )in the Phoenix area, to the American Red Cross – teaching first aid to both parents and caregivers, and offers Babysitter Training courses to teens. She is a founder of Professional Nannies of Arizona, a support group for nannies and newborn care specialists. She volunteers with Child Help, The Ronald McDonald house, Free Arts of Arizona and “A Date on Me” where she provides a free night of babysitting to returning soldiers to thank them for their service to our country. Last year Sheri joined the INA Board of Directors, where she has been a huge asset to our association!
