Megumi worked in business planning positions at Sony and Sony Mobile Communications. In 2006, she began studying economics at night at Aoyama Gakuin University, graduating in 2010. Throughout her career, Megumi saw in her co-workers and friends the challenges of working and studying while raising a child. Challenges that she was getting ready to face herself in the near future. To her surprise, there were no efficient baby-sitting services that offered to connect highly skilled babysitters with parents.

Inspired by her experience, Megumi quit her job at Sony and founded CareFinder in May 2013. Almost before the ink dried on the incorporation documents, Megumi had her first child, a baby girl. Today, Megumi lives in Tokyo with her husband, her young daughter, and the family cat.
