Casey Smith


Northlight Nannies was created in 2011 to provide quality childcare for Grand Rapids area families. In 2018, Casey Smith took over ownership eager to continue providing this service to the community.

About Casey:

Casey and Chris Smith have lived in Grand Rapids since 2016, when they first came into contact with Northlight Nannies. After transferring here from Grand Blanc, MI for Chris’s work, they needed someone to watch their children since they were new to the area and had no family around to help out. A quick google search and meeting with Jeff, the previous owner, led to them becoming a regular client with Northlight.

Casey has been a stay-at-home mom since 2013 and has had her share of times where a little extra help was needed. Her experiences before taking on the bigger challenge of raising kids have prepared her for taking on a business venture in child care. She spent time in the Financial Services industry working with a Financial Advisor to build a practice and address the needs of many clients. She also managed a team of employees at pizza shops she and Chris owned where she acted as manager and owner.
