I’ve interacted with most of our clients briefly by email or phone, and I thought you may like 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 in managing infection prevention within a large hospital system. I supervised 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. I also worked as a pharmaceutical safety analyst quality-testing the sterility of injectable medications. 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 nearly 6-year-old nephew and my toddler niece. Seeing these two grow and learn is truly the joy of my life. Their exuberance for life is so bright.

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.
