During the summer of 2011 I had an "Aha" moment that influenced my decision to start Karen's Errands. I moved back to Findlay because a family member needed my help. I figured my family member wasn't the only person in Findlay that needed someone to run his/her errands. I could help others such as new mothers, two-income busy families, post-op surgery patients who haven't been cleared to drive, and senior citizens by running their errands for them. Thus, Karen's Errands was born.
I am organized, detailed and love to drive. I was born and raised in Findlay so I know the area. I have the customer service experience from working as a collector, an automobile claims representative and yes, a teacher.
In 2016 I decided to extend the services that Karen's Errands offers and took the Senior Relocation Training Program to become a Certified Relocation & Transition Specialist (CRTS™). Karen's Errands now offers move coordination services to senior citizens who are considering downsizing or rightsizing. For more information click here.
"Honest, conscientious, trustworthy, reliable.
I have used Karen's Errands to watch my home, gather my mail and water my flowers. 5 star, highly recommend."
"I contacted Karen only a few days before Valentine's Day, but I really had no decent idea of what to get for my wife. Karen came up with several great options for me to pick from, gave me an estimate of the cost, picked it up and got it wrapped up nice and fancy in time for Valentine's Day. My wife was thrilled. Karen saved me a lot of time and my wife is happy with me. That is a win-win:)"
"Some days I just don't have enough time to get everything done. Several times I've called Karen last minute to ask for her help, and she always comes through. Whether it's last minute shopping during a busy day at the office, or dropping off tissues and cold medicine for my sick wife at home, I know I can always count on Karen when there just aren't enough hours in the day!"
"The service Karen at Karen's Errands provides is invaluable. When juggling work and a young family, having Karen spend the hour or two doing the shopping is an extra hour or two of time spent with family, which some days is all we get. It's an affordable way to keep life on track! Thank you."
"I have been a client of Karen's Errands since April 2013 and have to say she does a wonderful job. I was leary because I didn't have a very good experience before, but with Karen, I don't have to worry. She's friendly and efficient. Her prices are reasonable, too. I plan to use her services for a long time."
"Karen saved me when I had family papers to sort and ship to various relatives. Leaving the packing and shipping to her allowed me to catch my flight."
"Noticing that I didn't return home when expected, Karen went beyond the requested service and continued to pick up my mail and newspaper. I was very satisfied."
