My husband, Tommy and I created Wyndy to solve the problems we, as parents, faced when looking for trustworthy and reliable sitters for our two young children. We met at Vanderbilt University and moved to Birmingham after Tommy graduated from law school at the University of Virginia. When our second daughter was born, Tommy was practicing law at a large firm and I was completing my master’s degree at night. Our already hectic lives were further complicated by difficulties finding responsible sitters for our two girls.
Back then, we did what many parents still do; we’d meet a handful of sitters (mostly college students) through offline relationships, text them all when we needed a sitter, and then stop by the ATM late at night or search for the checkbook in order to pay them. We wondered--in a world where mobile apps make catching a ride or having groceries delivered insanely simple, why wasn’t there an app that could make getting a trusted babysitter just as easy? Well, now there is.
Wyndy is a platform that uniquely combines trust and technology, enabling parents to quickly and easily connect with background-checked, full-time college students in a way that benefits everyone. We are excited to share the magic of Wyndy.
