Meet Genna Hackley

Founder

When my nephew was born in 2017, my perspective changed forever.

I was overcome by love and this caused me to take stock of what I truly enjoy doing: caring for families. With my 15+ years of childcare experience and my organizing skills (I loved Tetris as a kid), I began specializing as a temporary nanny.

I had more time for my nephew and the freedom to choose my work, going the extra mile for parents and offering their children the same compassion and creativity I give my nephew.

I loved my work and soon I had so many requests, I could only help a fraction of the families myself. I began assembling this team childcare providers, with an eye towards excellence. To succeed, I utilized my professional background in HR, workplace safety, and program development.

Great experience! We were matched with Gaby, who was amazing. She was very professional and communicative. She clearly loves what she does and I felt very comfortable leaving my 12 month old son with her for the day. They played, went for walks, read books, and had a really nice time together. She even did some cleaning while he napped. Thank you Gaby for taking such good care of my son!

Joy was amazing and completely set my mind at ease. It's not easy to leave a 3 month old alone with a stranger, but Joy's credentials along with the backing of Babysitters of Boulder made the experience so much better. We were able to enjoy the wedding and have a great night. The pictures/updates that Joy sent us were a huge bonus!

Genna and her team of sitters have been a vital resource for our family for the past two years. She's connected us with reliable and engaged caregivers who I trust, even for overnights when I have to travel out of state. They communicate well, go above and beyond with special activities, and have stepped up when one of my kids was ill. My daughter has such a close relationship with one sitter that she sometimes asks when I'll leave so that they can see each other! I'm deeply grateful for their support that makes my career possible and highly recommend Babysitters of Boulder.

We don’t have family locally, so have used Babysitters of Boulder a few times for nights out for dates, concerts, etc. Each time has been great! I trust their sitters, they follow any specific instructions, and my kids have LOVED them!

We’ve used Babysitters of Boulder a few times now and I have to say that we’ve had nothing but wonderful experiences. Not having to deal with the stress of finding a sitter and checking references ourselves has been a game changer. The process is so easy and makes me feel comfortable that we have a wonderful sitter coming in to watch our toddler. Our last sitter, Joy, came prepared with fun crafts to do with our daughter, and sent us pictures throughout the night while we were out. We will absolutely continue to use Babysitters of Boulder and would recommend to anyone looking for a sitter.
