Marie Maher is the founder of Synapse Sitters LLC. Synapse Sitters is an online community that connects parents of children with autism and children with Down syndrome with qualified caregivers. After learning her son was on the autism spectrum, Marie very quickly realized that her needs when looking for a babysitter had drastically changed. Seeing that there was no real dedicated network for this type of caregiver, she decided to create one. This journey from idea to reality of SynapseSitters.com began in May 2017.
Maher has a sales background in a myriad of industries that include manufacturing, technology, and financial products. Maher was previously the founder of LullabySitters.com, another online network for parents and caregivers. Lullaby Sitters served the Indy community for 2 years, connecting parents with babysitters via online and in person via Speed Sitting events. Through her first startup, she gained experience in entrepreneurship, building technology, and creating online communities.
Throughout her career, Maher has been successful at developing and executing sales and marketing strategies. She enjoys connecting with all types of people and solving problems. She believes technology is one way to to create a bridge and begin these collaborative conversations, particularly within the special needs community.
Maher resides in Indianapolis, Indiana with her husband Luke, and their 2 children, Yves and Luella. She enjoys spending time with her family, reading, listening to podcasts, and cooking. She is exceptional at eating carbs. And by carbs, we mean donuts.
