How Pepper’s Can Help Moms After the Pandemic

This last year has been rough. The unexpected and widespread introduction of the coronavirus and COVID-19 in March of 2020 kicked off a difficult year of uncertainty, loss, and isolation. With stay-at-home orders, working and attending school from home, families everywhere have struggled to deal with a “new normal.” Now, as vaccines are being distributed and we begin to see a light at the end of the tunnel, it’s important to understand how hard some people have had it. 

Mother’s Day is coming up, and we can all agree that moms have gone through a very stressful pandemic. Balancing keeping a clean and organized home and working remotely with helping their children through new routines and virtual learning is not easy in the least bit. Not to mention the mental load and depression that has the opportunity to really sink in during the last year—Motherly reports that 74% of mothers say they feel mentally worse since the pandemic began. 

Luckily, Pepper’s Personal Assistants can help.

How Pepper’s Personal Assistants Can Help

Whether you are a mom or are looking to help a mom you know, hiring a personal assistant from Pepper’s is a great solution. Our personal assistants can help with common household tasks and tackle to-do lists, allowing moms to feel a bit of well-deserved reprieve. 

Here are just a few of the many things we can take care of:

Organize Your Schedule

Doctors appointments, new back-to-school schedules, work meetings, grocery pick-up, and even distanced coffee dates with friends can clutter up Mom’s calendar and cause undue stress. Our personal assistants can organize calendars, scheduling important meetings and social dates ahead of time to make sure nothing’s double-booked.

Grocery Shop and Meal Prep

With everyone in the house constantly, making meals at home night after night can be exhausting. Pepper’s can relieve some of that meal time stress by grocery shopping or online ordering, as well as meal prepping and planning for the future. 

Clean and Tidy the House

Studies show that a clean and organized environment can improve your mental health and help you feel happier. Give Mom a break from the constant tidying and eliminate the dreaded occasional deep clean by hiring a personal assistant to regularly clean the home—keeping everyone happy!

Plan a Family Vacation

Now that people are getting vaccinated and we can see somewhat of an end to quarantine, it may be time to plan a much-needed family vacation for the future. Instead of allowing the brunt of the research, cost-comparisons, and booking to fall on moms, Pepper’s Personal Assistants can assist in planning the perfect future getaway for the whole family.

Pepper’s Personal Assistant Reviews

See what it’s really like to work with a Pepper’s personal assistant!

Stress-Free Travel

“One of the massive benefits of having a PA is during travel disruptions. When flights are delayed, the kids are upset, and you’re stuck in customs, coming home to a stocked fridge and a prepared meal eliminates the need for a late-night milk run. You don’t realize the stress these tasks add until you have someone to handle them for you.”


Deep Gratitude!

“The first week with Vincent has gone exceptionally well! I have no questions or concerns, only deep, deep gratitude for the difference he has already made.”



“My PA is incredible—an 11 out of 10—really thoughtful, thorough, intuitive. She is professional but friendly; she has just been great. A couple of times because of things going on with her calendar, Kandis has been flexible—coming 15 minutes later to drop the dog off at puppy play. She has been really great.”


Thoughtful and Detail-Oriented

“My PA is a thoughtful and discerning assistant. She pays attention to details in our home and makes great suggestions for how to improve and optimize our lives. We trust her judgment, and she communicates proactively and frequently. She is always on-site on time and patient with my unpredictable schedule. We communicate frequently, but she’s also very efficient in how we communicate. Great work!”


Super Happy!

“[I] really do think Kandis is setting the bar! Having a new person come into your house can go either way. [I’m] very grateful for the time and energy and people that Pepper’s has. It’s a big step; no suggestions around onboarding. [I’m] really happy that we were able to board Kandis quickly; super happy for the West Seattle support.”


Organizing Superhero

“My PA is really good at organizing; it’s one of her superpowers. Some of the simple reorganizing things that she has done have made a big impact. She organized all the cat stuff in the garage and took the initiative on her own. She’s bright and cheery—no moaning, whining. Very great.”


One of the Best Decisions I’ve Made

“I just wanted to take a few minutes to tell you how much I have appreciated working with all of the Pepper’s staff. My assistant is so generous and thoughtful — she brings value to every interaction. I can’t remember a time when I’ve hired anyone with such a professional and high standard of customer service. Working with you all has been one of the best decisions I’ve made in a very long time!”


10/10 for Sure!

“Missa is a 10/10 for sure! She has been wonderful, and we check in regularly. I’m comfortable communicating with her about questions or requests, and she’s always been very responsive and also seems comfortable checking in if she has any questions for me. [The] biggest help remains pet care and household chores support, plus the help with one-off projects that come up. Missa has all kinds of skills she brings, (e.g., she’s currently putting together a ‘cat highway’ for the living room rafters).”


My Quality of Life Has Improved

“I used to spend every weekend and every evening doing chores and running errands. Now, I’m able to spend the time that I need to on my business, and then I get to enjoy my home and my life and the precious unstructured time that I have. The truth is, my quality of life has improved by having a Pepper’s household assistant here.”


Takes Initiative

“I want to mention what a fantastic personal assistant Billie is to me. We were on vacation last week, and she managed my household and vendors flawlessly. I even had her redecorate my office, and I gave her very little direction other than just to make it nice and functional, and, my goodness, did she ever! She takes initiative in my house in so many other ways but does not overstep or overspend. To strike that balance is really something unique and special. I feel really lucky to have her.”


I’m Blown Away

“[I’m] blown away by how much better the house looks already :)”


Kind, Caring, and Proactive

“My PA is a very caring person. I was incredibly ill last year, and my PA connected the dots that the washing machine had a lot of mold and thought the black specs on my clothes were from that. On her own time, my PA sent me an article about the impact of mold/washing machines. It was so kind of her.”


Goes Above and Beyond

“My PA has gone above and beyond. She’s organized my laundry room while keeping on top of laundry, which made it much easier to stay on top of stuff. She’s always ready to jump in and tackle items. It made this holiday season way less stressful.”
