proud FUNDER of:

PROUD Supporter of:

In the late 1980’s our founder, Audrey Guth, found herself searching for what would quickly become one of the most valuable persons in her life - a nanny. With four children, a dog, a career, and a husband equally committed to his business, she searched to no avail for the right support for her family.

So, she left her career to start Diamond Personnel in 1988, committing to providing the support she herself as a working mother desperately needed but never found. Through the years her promise to families has remained a blueprint for our agency - to honor those utilizing our services by connecting them with superior support so they have peace of mind and confidence that they have the best care for their loved ones.

Through innovation and transformation we have adapted to an ever evolving industry but never wavered from our core values. Our clients know that Diamond Personnel is an ethical and transparent agency that they can trust!

The company is now owned and operated by the Founder's daughter, Shauna Guth and her expert team. Shauna is a busy working mother of two beautiful children. With the support of an amazing Diamond nanny Shauna has grown the company to new heights and continues to be recognized as the #1 Agency for professional nannies, caregivers and household staff.

She has been a partner in not only making sure my daughter grows up safe and healthy, but also polite, kind, and educated from an early age. I am so fortunate to have found Maria with Diamond’s help, as my life could not be as it is without her."

"Maria hasn’t simply joined our family, she has grown up with it, and is fundamental to it.

She is always taking the kids to the parks to do outdoor activities and gets the two older boys to school on time. Sheila is the best cook ever she can make homemade dumplings, wontons, stir fry, spaghetti, homemade garlic lemon chicken fingers and the list goes on. 

"Sheila has the most positive, resilient and heart felt personality. Sheila is an early riser and every morning she is happy and upbeat and 100% reliable.

Had an amazing experience looking for a household manager + nanny all in one. Diamond Personnel was great to work with. The process felt comprehensive. I felt heard. Shauna kept me regularly up to date on what was happening, which I appreciated. 

"We found a wonderful match. Our family is so happy! Highly recommend."
