YEA! Business Spotlight: My Heavenly Helpers

| September 1, 2014 | 0 Comments

17 Heavenly HelpersWith new technology coming out every second, senior citizens are getting more stumped on how to use these new advancements in order to contact their loved ones. Kristine Taylor, an uprising teenage entrepreneur seeks to combat this crisis.

Drawing inspiration from her elderly piano teacher who loves contacting her grandchildren overseas, this 16 year old Southridge High School student set out to find a way to connect senior citizens to their loved ones, frequently and easily.

Her solution is My Heavenly Helpers, LLC, the business Kristine created as a recent graduate of the first Young Entrepreneur’s Academy (YEA!) in Oregon.

As a member of the Beaverton Chamber of Commerce, My Heavenly Helpers does everything possible to connect their clients to loved ones. They do this by personally teaching them how to use modern electronics like computers, tablets, and phones, handwriting letters for those with arthritis, and documenting life stories for seniors to leave to their posterity.

A “helper” gets sent to the client’s home at a time convenient for them. “I never knew my tablet could do that!” a client of My Heavenly Helpers said, “it’s so simple now!” For this lucky senior, a helper simplified things.

What could My Heavenly Helpers do for you?
