BIO

I grew up in Long Beach, Washington. In 2011, while I was a student at the University of Washington, I found an ad for “flexible babysitters” with a service called Spilt Milk Nannies in the UW Daily newspaper. I joined the service as I'd had years of babysitting experience. I loved the experience; I was meeting families and building my own little community in a vibrant big city. I took over the business in 2012. I often say “I don’t own a business; I manage a community.” Having a small community you can trust is very important to me. If you are a parent I’d love to welcome you into SMN and help solve your childcare needs with access to my network. If you are a sitter please join me and I can help you find fabulous families to work for, all on your schedule.

The best!

I can’t thank you enough for being there when we had just moved to Seattle and were super disoriented and knew nobody. You hired THE BEST NANNIES and we met so many amazing young women over the time we were members. You are an incredible resource and I honestly have no idea how we would have survived without you.

Highly Recommend!

I have been with Spilt Milk since the Fall of 2017 and have nothing but great things to say about this service. It is so fun and rewarding to work with so many different families in the Seattle area. The flexible schedule has been convenient for me over the past five years as I have been in and out of school and various other jobs. I am thrilled to recommend SMN to all families and nannies!

We loved having Julie help with the kids

My husband had a heart attack last weekend and it was so much help to have Julie with me on Monday and Wednesday to help with the kids so I could take care of the other things that needed attending to. Thank you so much for making it possible to arrange for help during a difficult time.

I have used spilt milk nannies since 2013. It is an amazing resource for busy working moms. Its online scheduling cannot be beat. I have used spilt milk 126 times (!!!!) and incredibly, every nanny has been on time and done a great job with my two exuberant kids. The owner, Erin Kelly, is amazing. I highly recommend spilt milk nannies!
