The Fat Cat Story
I grew up in metro Detroit and worked in higher education for 20+ years. I gained valuable experience in campus operations, event planning, writing, editing and marketing. I provided students and staff with top-notch service. The buildings and classrooms I managed were clean and well-maintained, and I consistently met tight deadlines and budgets.
At home, I was raising twin boys, caring for my elderly mother with Alzheimer’s, and supporting my husband through a career change. I was exhausted! I secretly wished for a fairy godmother to rescue me – or at least to run to the store to pick up milk and laundry detergent. I realized there were lots of people like me: overloaded with responsibilities and struggling to carve out time to enjoy family, friends and hobbies.
In 2015, I founded Fat Cat Concierge Services, LLC. Now I use my skills and experience to help busy professionals and families gain balance in their lives. I handle business and personal errands; oversee home maintenance and projects; research, write and edit business and personal documents; and much more!
I proudly serve my community as member of:
- Metro Detroit Mompreneurs
- Executive Board Member, Emerald Isle Irish Dance Society, Windsor/Detroit
- United Irish Societies of Detroit
- Seaholm High School PTA board
- Seaholm High School band booster
The company name is inspired by my two cats: Figaro (who is tiny) and Garfield (who is, indeed, fat).
