When Ashley Gladney decided to take her 16 years of experience in the babysitting industry to the next level, she enrolled in the CO.STARTERS program at Advance Memphis and launched Mobile Mommy.
Mobile Mommy is a childcare agency and babysitting service that offers high-quality curated care to families needing assistance. Families are interviewed to help Ashley understand their needs, including a home visit with both Ashley and the selected sitter. To match families with the best care, all Mobile Mommy sitters pass a background check and must be both first aid and CPR certified.
Although the business currently serves Memphis and the surrounding areas, Ashley hopes to grow her business to more cities and states in the coming years. Despite having had the business idea since high school, according to Ashley, “CO.STARTERS was that push I needed to launch… Because everything is laid out, you have no choice but to move forward. You just have to have the will to do it.”
