About A Servant's Heart (Personal Concierge & Assisting Services)
In this crazy world of multiple demands and very little time, we all could use someone to delegate to! I am that person.
As a single mom to a teenager and former executive assistant, I now help as a personal concierge, consultant, family assistant, and more. I can help with whatever you need--as much or as little. (Hourly and project pricing available below.)
Take a look at some of the ways in which I’ve helped others and could possibly help YOU! (Please note that these services are not inclusive of all that I can do.)
Relocation assistant to include such things as packing, moving, unpacking, organizing, connecting/disconnecting services, moving/estate sales, or even help in finding a new home!
Organizing kitchens & pantries to include inside-cabinet labeling of where things go to easily identify how to find items and put them away.
Organizing and de-cluttering of closets and downsizing clothes (by donating to your favorite charity), thereby allowing more room to bring in new items and gain better efficiency in finding items.
Installing shelves, putting together entertainment centers, hanging curtain rods, planting a garden. By teaming with you, together we complete household projects.
Grocery-shopping and meal preparation frees up your time and allows you often to come home to a meal in-waiting. Nutritious, healthy meals and healthy snacks for you and your family.
Personal shopper for apparel, accessories and just the right gift. With a degree in Fashion & Visual Merchandising, I can shop for you or with you for the just the right items. (I can also assist with a “Shop-in-your-closet” Wardrobe Analysis to help create more outfits from what you already own!)
Party and event planning assisting to include guest list, menu plans, shopping, decorating and even the overseeing of service staff, allows you the freedom to enjoy your event fully.
Travel planning (for business or pleasure) researched with all logistics arranged by coordinating and consulting with you to get you where you want to go for the right price at the right time. As a personal concierge, I will help you have that vacation or travel excursion you want and need.
Now that you’re planning on traveling somewhere (a few days, a few weeks), you want to make sure your furry or finny friends are well taken cared of. Therefore, my pet sitting services are available to care for those you leave behind. (Overnight or drop-in services available.)
Still need your mail picked up and plants watered? Then my house sitting services will bless you just as well.
Childcare/nanny service on-call is available as well. With a degree in child development and also a previous lead teacher for an afterschool program at a preschool for K-5th graders, I can help with homework, do fun craft projects, teach or support household chores, thereby having fun while learning. (I also have taught children to cook/bake, which is wonderful for getting them to eat better while learning math skills.)
Beyond caring for the children and preparing your meals, while I’m there, I can also help with laundry and light housekeeping. (Can also work with your child/ren on these chores to engage them in household help.)
Errands can be run for you to free you up. These can include car washes and oil change, dry cleaning pickup and drop-off, kids pickup and drop-off (from school, events or sports), shopping, etc. You can’t be everywhere at the same time, so clone yourself and let me assist.
Administrative services (virtual or onsite): Allow me to organize your office, set up filing systems, update your contact list, create a budget-tracking spreadsheet, monitor or manage your calendar, confirm your appointments, consult your marketing endeavors and improve your business development, etc. As an executive assistant/office manager for over 20 years in Silicon Valley, I have the technical savvy and professional talents for helping your small business and/or your family. (Resume available upon request.)
If it's ethical and legal, I'll do it! Contact me to know more about what I can do for you.
Questions and answers
- What areas of your trade do you specialize in?
Travel and Event planning
- What services do you provide your customers after the work has finished?
Ongoing support through regular or seasonal visits or on an as-needed basis.
Coaching, consulting and caring to empower them to learn and uphold new habits in order to maintain what we've accomplished.
- How many projects do you average in a year?
I usually assist an average of about 6 clients per year but need to increase this number, which is why I'm here. Some required on-going maintenance, but most do not. I'd like to find some that do that I can lock in with.
- What do you wish customers knew about your profession or trade?
Personal concierge service is a new business. It's one that, in the near future, especially in this valley with our hectic lifestyles, will be needed by families and working individuals as much as house cleaners, gardeners and the like.
Nothing can buy you quality of life like investing in a service like this so that your time becomes spent on your GET TO'S, not your HAVE TO'S. Investment in allowing me to take things off your plate will free you up to spend time with your children, your pets, your hobbies, or just relax.
"Don't put off till tomorrow what you can delegate today!"
- Tell us something customers may not know about you.
I'm a single mom of a teenage son that I've raised since birth on my own. I'm a native of Northern California, being born in SF, and being raised in Silicon Valley. I have a hi-tech background so much of my skill-set and multi-tasking from corporate, I bring into the homes and small businesses of the private clients I now serve.
I have a strong passion for family values and want to support that structure any way I can. I want to free up individuals to pursue their passions in life by being there to support them.
- What would you recommend customers looking to save money?
Purchase a pre-paid block of time (5, 10, 15 hrs.) up front and save on your hourly rate per each block of time purchased. Project pricing also available and suggested for open-ended projects with lots of variables.
- What questions should a customer ask before hiring a professional in your trade?
How do you determine the best use of your time when coming to help me or my family?
What do you charge and how do you bill accordingly?
Do you have any references?
- How did you get started?
I left corporate America when the economy turned and while looking to go back into an office environment, I began helping others to earn money to pay rent. One thing led to another, and I found that more and more people needed help, and I have a heart for bringing quality of life to others and can do that I've found by what I do.
- Tell us about the project or job that you are most proud of (in the last 12 months).
I assisted a woman with a very cluttered 3-car garage. She was stressed every time she entered the garage and knew she needed help. She called me in. I first took a survey of the garage with her, saw the many unorganized cabinets she wasn't using efficiently, made a few suggestions to her on how to arrange the space to accommodate not only the vehicles, but also other hobby items, storage and more.
She got empowered after 2 visits by me so much that she actually started going out 2 hrs. per week on her own to complete the task!

I have hired Robin as a Personal Assistant when my own work load has been overwhelming. She is indespensable in helping me meet time sensitive goals. She is resouceful and prompt in delivery. She is a job to have on my team.- Baker
