Paula's Story

I’ve lived in south Hillsborough county since 1980. As a military brat who moved often, I learned early the art of packing fragile items and parting with cherished possessions. We were always on hand the day the packers and movers came. It was exciting but sad, too. I’ve felt these emotions often so I understand how stressful a move can be. I’ve also owned animals all my life and formerly ran a pet sitting service. Both these things gave me many years of firsthand experience in moving, packing, time management, planning and compassion.

 

The idea of becoming a senior move specialist and helping seniors transition to a smaller home evolved from a long-term pet sitting client who needed to downsize to an assisted living facility. There was no family close by and they asked me to help them pack and downsize their home. Cherished possessions told a story of work, kids, grandkids, extensive world travels and community service projects. It was a daunting task, but oh, what a sense of accomplishment and well-being I had when finished.

I felt a calling to expand my services to others who may find themselves in the same difficult position. Several years ago, I had to downsize my own Mom from her large home filled with family heirlooms to one room in a memory care unit. I knew Mother would be more comfortable surrounded by her pretty things, but it was very hard deciding what to keep, what to sell, what to donate.​

Sunshine Senior Movers carries insurance for your peace of mind. I also have many referrals and references, both personal and business related, that I will gladly share. I can pass a level 2 background check. All staff are background checked and work under my personal supervision.
