“I always try to leave the woodpile higher than I found it.”

I am a life-long resident of Rochester (living most of my adult life in Irondequoit) and a graduate of St. Bonaventure University.

Everyday Hands had an especially organic and home-grown beginning. After surviving breast cancer and spending 25 years in Corporate America both as an accountant and a professional recruiter, I decided that it was time for a change.

In 2016, I began helping my neighbors, friends, and loved ones with ordinary everyday tasks—sitting with an elderly neighbor for companionship, picking up prescriptions, getting kids on their morning bus, and even delivering forgotten lunch boxes to school.

My helpfulness spread by word-of- mouth and within a short time other people began to call on me for similar assistance. I quickly realized that not only did I have a passion for helping people, but also there is a significant need in our community for help with “the small stuff.”

I truly love what I do and the satisfaction that I get from helping people is incredibly fulfilling! Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am a “people person” who is honest, friendly, hard-working, creative, and dedicated.

When I am not working, I enjoy a variety of activities including gardening, cooking, reading, knitting, and pretty much anything outdoors. I am also on the board of my neighborhood association and I am very active in the Rochester Women’s Network. My husband Scott and I love to spend time with our friends and family. During the warm months, we can often be found enjoying our cottage in Kendall, on our boat or just relaxing by a fire in the backyard.

Feel free to give me a call to discuss how we can help you or your loved ones with “the small stuff” of daily life.
