Growing up, my mother ran a daycare in our house. I was always lending a helping hand from the time she started when I was 6-years-old, until she retired when I was 22-years-old. Now, I work full-time as an Executive Assistant, and am also a part-time caretaker for my quadriplegic father. I'm looking to help make other families lives easier in any way possible!

Transportation Required
I'm looking for someone (just once each week, on Mondays) to help drive me to and from work. I live in Somerville. It's a 30 minute drive each way, but I would pay for the full hour each trip. I would be looking to be picked up at 7:20 a.m. and arrive to my work by about 7:50 a.m. I would want to be picked up at 4 p.m. and dropped back by around 4:30 p.m. If you could only do the morning ride or the afternoon ride, please still apply and just let me know which commute you could do. I have a health issue so I have to be very, very careful not to catch covid. I'll need someone who is willing to do a covid test before driving me, wear a mask, and have all the windows down in the car, rain or shine. If it is raining heavily, I will pay an extra 20 dollars for the inconvenience. I'll pay for the covid tests. Thanks!
