Just like Montessori, Nido Marketing defies convention. We built our entire agency around the unique needs of Montessori schools.
Nido Marketing was developed by Montessorians, for Montessorians. Our team is actively involved in managing and marketing Montessori schools. Everything we offer has been developed through real world experience.
Meet Our Team

She was a client of Nido Marketing before joining the team as our Executive Director in 2023. Her past experience as a client makes her invaluable to our team.
Previously, Elizabeth was an administrator at a Montessori school. She then turned into a Montessori parent. Learning a ton about Montessori while at her school and gaining valuable insight as a parent lead her to a desire to bring Montessori to more people and become more involved in the Montessori community.
Elizabeth has a Bachelor's degree in Middle Childhood Education and was a middle school teacher in public education before becoming a Montessorian. She is a military spouse and currently lives in St. Louis, Missouri with her husband and two young children.
