Experienced personal assistants Shannah Beth Towery and Nia Moore offer their expertise to free busy citizens from time-gobbling errands and tasks. Like twin blades of a human pocketknife, each assistant brings her specialization to the task at hand. Highly organized and experienced as a personal assistant to families and professionals, Shannah Beth can tackle pick-ups, deliveries, merchandise returns, and more. Nia's background as an executive assistant allows her to focus on client consultation and scheduling, though she and Shannah Beth often combine their powers for more difficult tasks, such as event coordination and intricate jazz dance numbers. The diligent duo also offers a handy reminder service; the gals keep track of important events—such as anniversaries, nephews' birthdays, or the feast day of St. Barnabas the apostle—and notify customers when the date is approaching, even sending cards and thoughtful gifts on the customer's behalf. Other tasks to which The Go to Gals can lend their expertise include vehicle maintenance, closet organization, letter writing, and ridding pantries of poltergeists and expired cans of creamed corn.
