Lynn Perkins has always been a pro at connecting people — helping friends find roommates, jobs, and even spouses. So when she became a mother of twin boys, it was no surprise that her mom friends turned to her for sitter recommendations.
Lynn soon realized that there had to be a faster, easier way to introduce parents to trusted caretakers. As a startup veteran, and with a background in tech, she explored the idea of an online, babysitter booking system. She wanted to make the process as easy as making restaurant reservations.
