Tasker Force

Tasker Spotlight: Janet K.

Janet calls herself DC’s “Mom-for-hire, but without the guilt.” She says she spent years cleaning, organizing and repairing things for her kids, but now that they’ve left the nest, she’s getting paid for her expertise. Janet helps busy area residents make their lives less complicated with Tasking help, including personal shopping assistance for which she was recently profiled on WJLA-TV.
