About Us

Baby Proofing Montgomery was founded in 2008 by Bill Brooner and his son, Bobby.

Bill was a successful management consultant in international development for 30 years. He then went on to be a home inspector, which made him cognizant of safety issues in homes. This, along with the gift of grandchildren, motivated his passion to help others make their homes safer for their children.

Bobby received his B.S. in Business Administration from Duquesne University and followed his creative passions toward a career in construction. He spent years as a carpenter and professional handyman. He has been involved in a wide variety of home maintenance and repair projects, as well as new construction. Bobby is a proud dad of two girls, Gloria and Laura.

In 2012 Michelle Kauffman joined the team and partnered with Bill and Bobby handling business development and marketing. She received a B.S. in General Business Management and Marketing from the University of Maryland and an M.S. in Business Administration and Marketing from the University of Maryland University College. She is a mom of two boys, Nate and Neal.

Baby Proofing Montgomery is a member of the International Association for Child Safety (IAFCS), a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting safety awareness and injury prevention for children. All of our team members have passed the Home Hazards Test, which is administered by the IAFCS. 

Bill and Bobby are trained as Professional Childproofing Consultants. Bill was also awarded the Advanced Certified Professional Childproofer designation and is currently the ONLY certified childproofer in the Washington, DC region.
