Hello and thanks for your interest in SMS® Indy! As a Mom of three, I know first-hand how difficult it can be to find reliable child care that you can trust. Before I became a SMS® Franchise owner, our family actually used the SMS® Columbus services for several years before we settled into the Indy community.

As the owner of SMS® Indy, I work hard to find local college sitters that are responsible and have a passion for working with children. It's such a pleasure to service so many families in the Indy area and an absolute honor to have earned their trust!.

Owner, SMS® Indy

Not only do I own and manage SMS® Indy, but my other full-time job is being a Mom to three very active boys! When I'm not running kids to swim practice or at a swim meet (all three boys are swimmers), we enjoy family bike rides and playing a good game of UNO.

My husband, Chris, and I are from the same small town in Ohio and moved to Indy several years ago for his job. With three kiddos, we are all about the date nights and have used lots of SMS® sitters over the years! I am excited to help other families find reliable childcare and hope to have a positive impact on each and every family we service!
