Meet Yvonne

Founder & Managing Director

I personally needed childcare when I moved to San Diego 11 years ago. Like most parents, I assumed there were standards for temporary childcare; in reality, there are NO state standards or licensing requirements for temporary childcare. The idea for Destination Sitters was born! I wanted to Give Parents Peace of Mind® when traveling with their children, so I created the strictest screening requirements in the industry for our sitters.

Founder & Managing Director

As the founder and managing director of Destination Sitters, LLC, an entrepreneur for over 35 years, and the mother of two children, I strongly believe that family comes first. Especially when traveling away from home, there is nothing like the peace of mind that comes from getting great professional help to care for your children. I and my partners, along with our office staff, have that one goal in mind with everything we do.
