Our Team

The management team of our hotel babysitting company brings years of experience to hotel babysitting services. Our managing member, Yvonne Wonder, has over 30 years of experience operating a variety of service companies, including babysitting and design (commercial, including hotel services, as well as residential). Davis Goodman, our COO and General Counsel, also has many years of experience in services industries, as well as both business and legal graduate degrees (domestic and international). Both Yvonne and Davis have children who are now in college.

Our local office managers have worked with hotels with babysitting services before becoming regional managers, and their previous experiences involved service businesses as well (including, for example, event planning and implementing policy initiatives throughout an entire academic community).

Hotels with babysitting services recommend Destination Sitters for their hotel babysitting because our management team understands not only parents’ and children’s needs but hotels’ service needs as well—that is, we provide the high quality of babysitting with the premier service providers that guests expect.
