Co-Founder & CMO | Errand

What are you most proud of in your career thus far?

When we started Errand, it was just a website that I coded with my very limited capabilities where people could book errands to be done for them in Davis County. We were able to gain enough traction to obtain the resources to build our own app. Now, we not only service all of Utah but other parts of the country as well. Sometimes, it’s hard to see the impact and progress you’re making day-to-day, but zooming out and looking at where we are versus where we started is very surreal!

What is the most fulfilling part of the work you do?

Customers will reach out all the time, telling us how we were able to help them. Whether it be saving the day when they couldn’t be two places at once or allowing someone to spend more time doing something they love, I love hearing about how our company makes people’s lives a little bit easier.

Who inspires you?

My husband, Kason. A lot of people told us we were crazy to start a company together or work together at all. I can see why people say that, but our experience has been extremely positive. He is the hardest worker I know, and he is able to make things happen no matter what. I have never heard him make excuses for not being able to get something done.
