Who Owns Babysitters Of Boulder?

Updated: Mar 20

I've interacted with most of our clients briefly by email or phone, and I thought you may want to know more about the person who built and oversees Babysitters Of Boulder.

My name is Genna Hackley. I actually have a degree in Biology from the University of New Mexico and my first career was managing infection prevention within a large hospital system. I managed and trained staff, I met with C-Suite leadership, I spoke with patients....and I cleaned hundreds of patient rooms and bathrooms, sometimes in a ventilator hazmat suit in cases of contagious airborne illnesses. I also worked as a pharmaceutical safety analyst, quality testing the sterility of injectable medications. Looking back, these were extraordinarily intense jobs decked out with responsibility. Just like my business is now. My babysitting business safely survived 2020 and COVID-19 in large part because of my foundation in infection control.

There are five siblings in my family and two of my brothers have children: my 5-year-old nephew and my toddler niece. Every time I interview an applicant the most fundamental question I ask myself is: "Would I personally trust this person to care for my own family?" Seeing these two grow and learn is truly the joy of my life. It's amazing how clearly very young children see the world, in a way that as adults we often have forgotten how to do.

When our office is closed and I take a break from thinking about my business, my favorite thing is going out to eat. I would happily go out to eat 8 days a week. My husband and I even got married at a restaurant venue, the Acreage Cidery in Lafayette, CO. I highly recommend that place and that view.

My favorite bands are Led Zeppelin, Fleetwood Mac and Sublime. One of my personal dreams is to see Robert Plant live in concert. When I was a kid I wanted to grow up and be a classic rock DJ or a rock music historian like Matt Pinfield on MTV.

Please feel free to ask me any questions about childcare. I truly look forward to being your childcare partner and your helping hand.
