Inspiration for Personal Business Matters

As my parents and in-laws aged, they needed more assistance with their daily life management needs. Even as I ran my own household, raised a family, and worked a full-time job, I spent hours helping loved ones with their monthly bills, acting as their liaison with financial, tax and real estate consultants, facilitating a move to assisted living, and generally organizing their personal affairs. I found these experiences to be tremendously rewarding and I wanted to continue helping others in a similar manner.

I created Personal Business Matters, LLC to provide caring and confidential help with clients’ personal daily business matters—enabling them to enjoy life without the worry of paying the bills and staying organized.

I was born and raised in Fairfax County, Va., where I live with my husband.
