Meet Marva


Born in Trinidad, Marva Soogrim came to the United States in the 1980s at the age of twenty-one. With medical assistant training and impeccable references, Marva began her calling as a baby nurse/nanny to some of New York’s most prestigious families. News of her novel and calm approach to caring for babies spread and she quickly became the nanny of choice for celebrity parents including Julia Roberts, Reese Witherspoon, Courteney Cox, Sheryl Crow and Chris O’Donnell, to name a few.

A mother of four herself, Marva can tap into the deep instinct that every parent possesses and help guide them in a way that still fits their individual needs. She teaches parents ways to make a daily schedule to follow that brings calm to the household and leaves room for the parents to take care of themselves and each other. Marva specializes in multiple births and has dealt with many premature babies.

In Marva’s spare time, she has visited hospitals to hold newborn babies and has traveled to many states to support military moms through Operation Homefront. She is frequently asked by the media to offer parenting advice, appearing on The Today Show, CBS and various podcasts. She has also written about parenting for the The Huffington Post, SheKnows and Today's Parent. Marva is now making her skills to raise healthy and happy children accessible to all because she feels that every family should experience her Marvalous Mindset.
