My interest in becoming a Senior Move Manager started when I helped my parents move our family when I was 14. I just didn’t realize it at the time. It was a lot of sorting, packing and enjoying family memories. We moved again a couple of years later and, although it didn’t take as long, the process was the same. Soon, I was moving myself to college, to summer jobs and back to college. After completing my Bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, it was moving in with my new husband. Nine moves later, including one overseas to Japan, I can actually say that I enjoy the process and its challenges.
Being away from my family, it has always been a concern that I would need to return to help with the process of reorganizing a home to make living easier or to help someone downsize. I worried that with a young family at home, it would be difficult for me to help a family member and be gone from home for a long period. Although my children are older and it’s easier for me to be gone, I can see those same needs here, in the community we’ve made our home. I’ve seen friends struggle with who will help their parents, who live far away. Others could use help, but don’t want to be a burden to their children. I want to be there for them. I want to help them sort through their treasures, help them decide what goes to their new home, pack and unpack their belongings and ease their way through the transition of moving. Mostly I want to ease their minds and their children’s minds and help them enjoy the journey and the new adventure that awaits!
