Once Upon a Time, a college student turned her dreams into a reality
Cyan Nardiello - CEO and 'Fairy God-Nanny'
When CEO and 'Fairy God-Nanny' Cyan Nardiello took her first Disney trip when she was 13, she knew that the castle was her home. When she was looking at colleges, Cyan chose The University of Central Florida, only a small drive away from the magic.
Cyan had been working in childcare prior to going to college, and she wanted to continue. Wanting to be her own boss, she decided to nanny for families in the area. She had the idea to blend her two passions into one when she got the opportunity to take one of her children to Disney. Cyan has been offering in-theme park childcare services ever since, and this is just the beginning!

Hi, my name is Gerilynne Mendez. I'm 22 years old and a recent graduate from the University of Central Florida. I graduated with a Bachelor's in Psychology and a minor in medical sociology. I am now working on applying to grad school to become a Clinical Mental Health Counselor. I was born in New Jersey and raised in Deltona, Florida. In my free time I love going to theme parks! My favorite Disney Park would have to be Hollywood Studios, although that's a hard choice! I have babysat since I was 16 years old with 2+. I can't wait to further my experience with children during this new adventure!
Hi, my name is Adriana Ruffini! I am 21 years old and a college student in the Orlando area. I am going to the University of Central Florida to get my bachelor’s in graphic design. I was born in Santiago Chile and grew up with my two siblings on the Eastern Shore of Maryland. I have had the opportunity to babysit and help out families with children from the ages of 2+, since I was 14. I have been around children my whole life and come from a large family who I am very close with. I have traveled to multiple countries and even had the chance to live in Sydney Australia with my cousin, her husband and 2 children. I spent almost 4 months overseas and while I was there, I had the responsibility of watching my cousins who at the time were 2 and 5. The time I spent in Australia gave me a chance to build a close relationship with them and helped mold me into the woman I am today. I have great memories of going to Disney with my family ever since I was little, and I would love to be there for you and your family while creating magical memories at Disney world.
