SitterTree's OG Sitter: Jody Stephenson
SitterTree began in a college dorm room in 2000. Jody Stephenson, a sophomore at Oglethorpe University in Atlanta, Georgia found babysitting was the perfect way to fund living her best life in college.
She worked with several nearby families, caring for their children as if they were her own. The families returned the care to Jody, remaining in touch 20 years later.
In between classes (and sometimes during them) Jody picked up all the babysitting gigs she could. The flexible income allowed her to graduate with minimum college debt - plus a trip to Europe.
Word spread about Oglethorpe's best sitter. Soon, Jody's initial few families became known as The Playgroup. Moms continued to share the resource as a "must have."
Jody started booking other Oglethorpe students for jobs, charging a small fee, payable in cash through the campus mailbox system. Students loved the service - and opportunity for flexible jobs. By the time Jody graduated, 10% of Oglethorpe's campus was babysitting.
SitterTree community of families and sitters continues to grow, but the vision remains the same: to provide safe, professional, and engaging child care. Kids deserve nothing less.
