About Us

At Twinkle Toes we offer the best in childcare from babysitting to full time nanny care. Established in 2011, Twinkles Toes originated when our Founder, Kristy Bickmeyer, couldn't find a local nanny service for her own children. With years of nannying experience, Kristy decided to start her own, concierge-style childcare agency. Twinkle Toes nannies are screened far beyond industry standards and are the absolute best that Jacksonville has to offer. Unlike other agencies in the area, you never pay a placement fee, application fee, or membership fee. You simply pay for the hours that you use our services! Our convenient invoicing makes it easy for you and helps take one less thing off your plate. You deserve peace of mind and your child deserves a Twinkle Toes™ Nanny!

Kristen Wood

Hi, I'm Kristen and I am the owner of Twinkle Toes™ Nanny Agency, Jacksonville. I am originally from Minnesota, and attended college in Colorado. During my time at school, I worked as a nanny part time during my freshman year and this eventually grew into a six year long career as a full time nanny. It was this experience that led me to Twinkle Toes™ after relocating to Jacksonville Beach, Florida.

My favorite part about my job is that I am able to get to know every new Twinkle Toes family on a personal level before beginning the nanny search. I understand the importance of finding the right person to care for your children, and I feel privileged to be part of the process.

I look forward to working with you and getting to know you and your family!

Kristen Wood, Owner

  • I really enjoy a good game of charades or Catchphrase.
Julie Crecelius

Hello, my name is Julie and I'm the Branch Manager of Twinkle Toes™ Nanny Agency, Jacksonville. I grew up in Idaho and have lived all over the US. I hold a Bachelor's in Legal Studies with a minor in Law enforcement and a Master’s in Counseling. I've worked in a variety of fields such as retail management, law enforcement, refugee and immigrant mental health/relations, as well as working with children with special needs.

I was a live-in nanny at age 18 so I know what an important job it is for families. I also know what it's like to be a parent and need care for your child because you’re working twelve plus hours a day. I know what it's like for families that have special needs child(ren) and need someone trustworthy to watch your child. I know what it's like to be at your wits end because you have to find a sitter to go to work. I know what it's like to live in a new city and not have any family to help with your children. All my experiences have prepared me for this role - to help Moms and Dads find the perfect child care fit for their family!

I look forward to working with your family and welcoming you to our Twinkle Toes family!
