Meet Rachel

Rachel Tolman Terry lives in Colorado with her husband Ben and their three energetic kids. She's been freelance writing and editing for many years, trying to make good use of that English degree. She enjoys reading, spending time outdoors in colorful Colorado, traveling, and trying new things.

Always preferring to spend money on things like snorkel gear and lift tickets, Rachel has looked for alternatives to paying for babysitting. Creating co-ops and swaps with neighbors and friends, Rachel has found that there are no-cost solutions to paying for babysitting, and these solutions usually come with added benefits: responsible adult supervision, friends for the kids to play with, and a thriving sense of community.

She's excited about sharing these findings with other moms through Babysitting Co-op 101.
