Potomac Concierge was founded in 2005 by two women who realized that the demands of a career, family, and personal needs can be overwhelming. With their staff of specialists, they enjoy helping others find a balance in their lives.

I love helping people and have been volunteering for as long as I can remember. From helping out at my local library as a child and being actively involved in the PTA to managing and volunteering countless sports teams for my 3 sons and teaching gardening skills to individuals with physical challenges, I have always supported my community in a variety of ways.
Lending a hand has always been a part of who I am, and so has my ability to problem-solve. I seem to have a knack for anticipating people’s needs and finding creative ways to help–ways that really make a difference. As an Accountant, I spent over 20 years in the private and public sectors creating financial order for corporations and large organizations, but it was never as satisfying as helping somebody out of a hard spot or finding a creative, cost-effective way to solve their problem.
As co-founder and CFO of Potomac Concierge, I am able to merge my skills for creating order and organization with my passion for helping others and find solutions for people that consistently exceed their expectations. It is our personal touch and relationships that allows us to ensure the greatest satisfaction with our clients.
I fundamentally believe that when I am not learning new ways to improve professionally or better serve our clients, I will stop doing great and useful things. I’m an avid reader, love gardening, committed to lifelong learning, and I love using everything I learn to benefit our clients.
I have always been fascinated by people and how we are all connected to each other. My background growing up overseas, a degree in psychology,
I have always been fascinated by people and how we are all connected to each other. My background growing up overseas, a degree in psychology, creating and managing a business, as well as raising three children brings a unique skill set and knowledge base to Potomac Concierge. Additionally, I am on the faculty at Montgomery College where I teach a class called Declutter Your Life and Space.
I have long considered myself a “people person” – I am fascinated by people, their stories, and the connections we all share. I find you can learn something from everyone, we all have something to offer, and that no matter what life throws at you, it is typically the kindness and care of others that help you through. We are in this together, and I believe it is our human duty to make a positive difference in each other’s lives.
I treasure being part of Potomac Concierge where I am able to do what I love on a daily basis. I enjoy the process of tackling challenges, creating solutions, and providing organization, structure and direction to both personal and professional projects.
Why did you create your business?
Aida and I created Potomac Concierge with the desire to make a real difference in busy people’s lives. We know through personal experience that the innumerable demands of life can be overwhelming, consuming, and time-draining. And all too often, when push comes to shove, it’s the things that really matter to us that fall to the wayside.
The work we do empowers our clients to do more of what they value – whether at home, in the office, or in taking care of themselves. Through exceptional personal assistant services, organization services, and turn-key move management, we are changing the way people live and directly improving their quality of life. Our goal is to give our clients back a truly invaluable resource: their time.
As an active part of the Washington, DC community, Potomac Concierge makes it a priority to give back to others in need. We choose our charitable activities based on those we are most positioned to help, as well as based on our personal passions and community goals.
