WE ARE THE EXTRA FAMILY MEMBER EVERYONE WANTS
HI, I’M MARIA
Founder and owner of Ladies Running Errands.
As a long-time Balmain local, I look after the Inner West Sydney, Eastern suburbs and Lower North Shore areas as well as areas of Sydney not currently in our franchise territories.
Ladies Running Errands is very special to me because the company was born at a time when my own family needed a helping hand. It wasn’t easy to find the help because everyone we knew had such busy lives.
I soon realised there are many people in very similar situations to mine.
I created Ladies Running Errands to make your life a little less stressful and help out when you cannot possibly take another day off work to wait at home for a contractor, or for when you want an airport transfer that gives you a seamless and stress-free way to start your well-earned holiday.
Transporting families with the correct baby and child car seats fitted is very important to us. All our lovely drivers are RMS regulated, have police and working with children checks, are fully insured and every franchise has a certified child car restraint installer.
As Ladies Running Errands has grown in popularity and so many families have come to rely on us, I have had the wonderful opportunity to offer franchises to other women who want the flexibility, sense of value and enjoyment a Ladies Running Errands business brings. It has been so fulfilling to me to grow our network with these remarkable, dedicated and caring franchisees.
Anything you need help with – just ask!
Cheers, Maria XX
HI, I’M MELISA
I’m Melisa Prieto and I look after the Ryde area.
I’ve lived in Ryde/Hunters Hill for 20 years off and on. For the last 10 years it’s been permanent. It’s an amazing area to raise a family. I have a little toddler, Lucas who is my world.
From 2002-2017 I worked as a flight attendant for Australia’s biggest airline. I travelled the world, made amazing friends and experienced all different cultures and adventures. After having my son, I felt I needed a big change.
Being a single mum I felt I needed to be home and “grounded” as we say in airline speak.
The opportunity to establish the first franchise for Ladies Running Errands landed at the perfect time as I was taking voluntary redundancy. It was a sign as I was having personal conflicts about caring for my son and working. And what better company to join than this one!!
I love the idea of helping families and individuals with their transport requirements, any errands they need a hand with, doing the school runs etc. I feel so blessed and enjoy every day.
I’m looking forward to continuing growing and providing this much needed service.
Thank you, Melisa xx
HI, I’M EFFY
“The toughest opponent I have ever fought was worry.”
Now, I am sure we can all relate to this saying at one time or another.
Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Effy and I am one of three children born to Greek parents so I am able to speak Greek fluently, thanks to after school (forced) Greek school :).
I grew up in Sydenham and have had the pleasure to live in Monterey for over 10 years, as living close to the beach was a dream of mine.
I love the outdoors, especially camping and new adventures. I love meeting new people and hearing their stories. I am a certified advanced scuba diver and have dived in many beautiful and amazing places around the world. I have jumped out of perfectly good planes; hot air ballooned and I have also travelled to many parts of the world.
Ultimately, my real passion is helping others. I have spent the last 9 years as a Medical Practice Manager, which gave me great satisfaction in being able to help others in their time of need.
In 2009 I was diagnosed with breast cancer (now cancer free yippee) and found my self in a position where I would have to drive myself to hospital, doctors’ appointments and treatments. Although I had many offers and mental support, I felt uncomfortable asking for those around me to keep taking time off. I absolutely would have taken up the services of Ladies Running Errands if they were around at that time.
I am excited to embark on this new adventure in servicing people in need as I truly understand and appreciate how time is valuable as we are all busy. I look forward to taking a little of your worries away.
HI, I’M ROS
I’m Ros Hunter and I look after the Upper North Shore area.
I have lived in Cowan for 28 years and previous to that I grew up in Hornsby Heights. I am a true local!
I have two adult boys that grew up in Cowan, playing soccer every weekend in the Upper North Shore.
Together with my family, I help families all over the Upper North Shore to get them where they need to go – comfortably and effortlessly.
I have beautiful, new cars and the highest quality baby and child seats on the market.
I enjoy so much meeting new people and their lovely families and make sure every experience is a great one. I pride myself on my excellent customer service.
I can’t wait to meet you and your family too!
HI, I’M SANDRINE
I’m Sandrine Difranco and I look after the Hills District area.
I am mum to Isabella and I am the eldest of 2 siblings, born to Mauritian parents. Yes that’s right! I am from the beautiful island of Mauritius. (A trip to Mauritius should be on your bucket list).
I love going to the movies, shopping, cars, cooking and baking. I am also a certified first aider, and certified in CPR. I have worked for one of Australia’s largest financial institutions for 14 years.
Life wasn’t always a bouquet of roses. After experiencing a very difficult marriage breakdown and a period of depression, I quickly realised how fast people came to my aid. I needed the help and didn’t even know it. During this period of my life I came across many people in similar situations that had no help, an extra set of hands is what they needed.
That’s why I love the concept of Ladies Running Errands so much. We are truly here to help.
I look forward to meeting and helping people on this new journey.
Help me, help you today, call me anytime.
Thanks, Sandrine xx

HI, I’M KERRI
Bringing up two active sons (now aged 22 & 20), saw me spend many days, afternoons, as well as weekends involved with their sports and school activities, so I know what it’s like trying to do everything for your family. That’s why I’m so glad to be part of this wonderful business, where we can offer real help to families when they need it.
As a previous owner of a home-based childcare business for 18 years, I have all the right credentials to look after your precious little ones. I have a first aid certification, working with children check, and police check, so your children can travel safe with us. We will always supply the correct baby and child care seating and restraints to sit your child’s needs.
My partner, Shane, and I are looking forward to meeting you and yours very soon! We’re that extra family member everyone wants.
Warm wishes Kerri & Shane
