Introduction: In the past 10 years I have seen how easy it is to get overwhelmed and just how much another clear-minded steady person can help dissolve the feeling of too much. I have worked in many capacities in my client's homes and lives over the years and always find that people are most happy when the person they hire listens to what they want and is able to fill in the gaps of what they need. We take the time to understand how our clients think and live in order to best support their homes and lives. We work to create spaces and routines that make their lives happier and healthier. From a simple kitchen reorganization or meal planning to special occasion events, we can and do organize the best possible version of life for every client. Whether you have us out for a one time job or as a part of routine maintenance, we support the day to day life.

Event Planning

Shout out for Auxiliary Mom. Although I decided against a party at this time due to COVID I appreciated the interest she took in understanding my event. Easy to talk to and has good ideas and lots of experience. I have her on my list of event planners and look forward to working with her in the future.

Packing and Unpacking

Auxiliary Mom was truly that for my daughter. As her mother living in California I couldn’t be there to help my daughter when she experience the flooding of her apartment in Austin and had to move out in less than week while working 40+ hours per week. Luckily I found Auxiliary Mom on Thumbtack and contacted regarding my daughter’s situation. She was very helpful and met with my daughter helping to ease her anxiety, advise her and help her pack everything I would have done if I was there. Thank you so much for being an auxiliary Mom for my daughter!

Event Planning

I contacted Talena and gave her what I was thinking about for a surprise party for my husband's 70th. WOW - the outcome was amazing, her organization and responsiveness to changes was excellent. My husband was totally surprised and thrilled with the party. He said, "other than our wedding day, the day our kids were born - this has been the best day of my life." Can't say more than that.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    Fees can vary based on the project. We tend to quote our general base price until we get a better understanding of what is really needed.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    We love to meet and discuss what you need and then make a plan for how to accomplish your goals and schedule out the initial needed hours to get it done! We ask that our new clients pay for the first 3hrs prior to work beginning.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a background in theater as a stage manager, costume designer, and production manager, as well as over 15 years working in people's homes in many capacities. I have worked as an event manager for large corporate events to intimate house parties. While I don't carry a license for project management or home organization, it is work I have done for many years so what I lack in licenses, I have in abundance of experience.
