OUR STORY

It began with our founders, Danna Redmond and Dianna Winegarden, and their vision to build a service and technology platform that provides customized home management services to busy households. They soon brought Ivo in to make that technology platform a reality. Now HeyThrivy is growing, and delivering comprehensive management of household services, errands, chores and travel/event planning for our clients. Our platform gives you access to a team who knows you, knows what you need, and delivers it right to your home.

 HeyThrivy is on a mission to elevate people's lives by giving them more time to do what they love.
