What People Are Saying

“For us, there’s life Before Heather and After Heather. Before Heather, our weekends were just another kind of work — full of errands that we were too busy during the week to get to, leaving us exhausted on Sunday nights. Heather now takes care of all those — so After Heather, we can actually use weekends to relax and recharge. It’s the best money we spend all week. ”

“I hired Heather in April of 2017 to help with the transition of selling my house and moving to a condo. She listened to my concerns, executed them flawlessly, and then offered her own thoughts on how to make the transition even smoother. Once I moved, I couldn’t let her go. Heather now works for me 3 hours a week in a different capacity, helping with everything from banking issues to everyday life-problems that pop up.  Apart from her professionalism and expertise, Heather also adds a great deal of laughter to the tedious tasks we all undertake.”

We moved to the area with our precious dog Maggie and, as we travel extensively, wanted to find someone who would look after her instead of boarding her in kennels. Heather was recommended by a new friend and what a gem she has turned out to be. Our trips varied between a day and two weeks and in each case Heather accommodated us and Maggie. Every time we delivered Maggie her tail wouldn’t stop wagging, confirming how pleased she was to stay with Heather. On other occasions Heather would help me out and collect Maggie from our house, again very accommodating.
Thanks for always being there for Maggie and us Heather, our very best wishes.

“We used Heather’s Helping Hands to take care of our dog Chloe – what a great experience. Chloe was so well cared for that she didn’t want to leave! Heather gave her so much care and concern – from lots of exercise to special comfort during thunderstorms. We were out of the country and she even sent us some pictures which really put our minds at ease. Will definitely use her services again.”
~ Kate Carr, Washington, DC

“Heather helped me tackle an office clean out and re-org. She was prompt in her responses, and right on time for our appointments. She was friendly, flexible and positive with good ideas. Got a project you don’t have time for or would just like help with, contact Heather!”
~ Meg Brinkhuis, Vienna, VA

“Heather, thank you for all your help in keeping my life on track while
I was under the weather recently.
Don’t know what I would have done without you!”
~ Lisa Aramony, Alexandria, VA

“I have known Heather as my neighbor for a long time. I am thrilled that she is offering these services and have started to seek her assistance. Heather is extremely kind, honest, reliable and trustworthy. More importantly, she is “pet approved” by all my animals, and my son has really liked Heather since he was a baby. This past week Heather  picked him up after camp every day, and my son was thrilled to have that time with her.  She was very engaging with him and made sure he got into the house safely.  There are no worries or doubts when Heather is in charge.”
