About the Children

Coworker Details, you ask? Okay, here's who you'll be working with: Caity: The perfect mash up of "very chill" and "very passionate." Extremely smart. Also, she secretly knows all music theatre songs and will sing along if you start singing first. Caity has a fear of magic. Collin: If Collin had a motto, it would be, "work diligently and always keep a lookout for how to help others." You want to work with Collin. He also loves leftovers. Adrienne: A lover of all things GOOD. Good coffee, good food, and doing good in the world. Kirstyn: Your new boss is a plant-loving problem solver and helper by nature. She is a wise sage with a really awesome dog named Marty. She ran 10 miles last week. She is very cool. Dara: Dara is writing these bios and isn't used to referring to herself in the third person. She is super duper excited to meet you! Suzie: Suzie is the most empathetic of the bunch of us and also very positive. She is always happy to lend a helping hand or help however she can. Also, she has a SUPER cute 2-year-old named Chase. Danisha: Danisha is our on call specialist, i.e. the main family and SmartSitter helper for last minute needs outside of regular business hours. Did your cat get stuck on the neighbor's roof and the fire department is on it's way and you *may* have to cancel your booking that starts in 4 hours and it's 11 AM on a Saturday? Well, in this case, hopefully the fire department will be gone within the hour and you won't have to cancel the booking. However, if you did need anything, Danisha is there to help! Kayleigh: Collects all your time-sheets and does all the billing from a tiny laptop that travels the world while she travels the world performing music. She is as cool as Kirstyn.
