About Barbara I.
I am a compassionate, energetic person who is also very detail oriented and hardworking. I recently retired from 35 years in the IT industry. I installed and supported cash register systems all over Western Canada, mainly in the grocery industry but also in home improvement stores and other retailers. I was very dedicated to all of my customers and always gave them the best service possible. I would use those skills to give prompt and efficient attention to the errands you need help with.
This is my first opportunity to run errands for others but, of course, I have been doing it for myself and my family since I was a teenager. When I run my own errands I like to make a list and plan my route so that they can be completed efficiently.
Party or Event Help
While I have not yet received remuneration for planning/hosting parties and events, I do have a diploma in Hospitality from BCIT and I have planned and hosted dozens of parties for family and friends. My most recent events have been food and beverage service for Open Houses and Fashion Shows on behalf of my sister who is a Fashion Designer in Vancouver.
