Jaiya Ellis

Owner and
Reservations Manager
(509) 432-6312

Jaiya discovered the beauty of the Yampa Valley through a group of friends in the winter of 2012. She has a passion for working with all age children and found enjoyment in working for Steamboat Babysitting Company. With her background being in Elementary Education and Outdoor Environmental Education, SBC seemed like a natural fit.

She worked for Steamboat Babysitting Company for 7 years, 2 years as a babysitter and 4 years as the

Reservations Manager before becoming the Owner in late 2018.

Steamboat Babysitting Company has been in operation for 8 years now. 

Jaiya found a second home working for Yampa Valley Sustainability Council managing a ReTree Steamboat

program as well as Talking Green, an adult education series focusing on climate action. Jaiya instantly fell in

love with the 360 degree view the Mountain has to offer. She is often found skiing, fishing,

camping, taking nature photos and just enjoying life in the Rocky Mountains. 

Jaiya now has a 3 year old and a newborn. The family is enjoying all that the valley

has to offer including the beautiful sunsets.
