"The Get~it~Done Gurus do it all,
No project too big, no task too small!
They'll plan an event,  find a mural for the wall.
They have the resources, just give them a call."

— Marilynn, Berwyn

Patt Karubus

Guru Patt has been offering personal assistance to family and friends, clients and colleagues for years. She applies her unique blend of organizational skills and can-do attitude to all customer requests. Patt was practicing out-of-the-box thinking long before there was a term to describe creative problem solving. Further, her keen attention to detail has allowed Patt to successfully plan and execute various corporate and personal events throughout the years.

Her honed interviewing and active listening skills, along with a calm demeanor, help Patt engage customers and draw out important points and expectations. By doing so, the Get-it-Done Gurus are able to delight clients with on-target and within-budget results. Read more...

Kathy Strickland

Co-founding the Get-it-Done Gurus—with its emphasis on life-simplifying services—is a logical extension of Guru Kathy's concern for others. Her supportive and encouraging nature helps clients conquer their real-world, too-much-to-do challenges. Kathy takes weighty tasks off their hands and leads the way to dealing with burdensome chores that never seem to get done.

A boundless supply of curiosity ultimately led Kathy to a history major that complements her lifelong interest in genealogy. She's a great listener and believes everyone has a story to tell … a quality especially valued by the elders who eagerly await her weekly visits. Read More...
