Amy Husted earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology at Baldwin-Wallace College (now Baldwin-Wallace University) in 2006. After college, she spent time working in banking until she had the opportunity to transition into the role of a stay-at-home mom to her two little boys. She then built, owned, and operated her own at-home bakery boutique, La Hoot Bakery from 2012 until 2015, setting it down for the purposes of pouring all of her professional time and talent into Komae. She is married to Andrew Husted and lives in Copley, Ohio along with their two boys, Nathan and Noah. In their free-time, Amy, Andrew and their boys love to have family board game nights or escape to a hotel for a night of family fun.
Audrey Wallace is co-founder of Komae, an Akron tech startup that combines service sharing with child care, empowering parents to exchange unlimited free babysitting with trusted friends. Audrey earned her Bachelor of Science in Psychology and Communications at Baldwin Wallace University in 2004. After college, she spent a decade working her way backwards down the corporate ladder until she landed the most rewarding job of all, stay at home mom. She lives in West Akron with her husband Gary Wallace and two young sons, Rowan and Abram. Together they love to explore nature, host gatherings of friends, and max out the scale at their local fro-yo shop!
