Who is Henrietta?
The founder and director of Henrietta’s Help @ Home - is Stephanie Tate.
As ‘Henrietta’ - she heads up a team of meticulously chosen staff.
“Our model enables Henrietta’s Help @ Home to build relationships with clients which match and support every aspect our client’s life.
It is not unusual to be involved across the generations of one family, to be able to support the highs and lows of life’s chapters at an instant, knowing the client family’s needs and priorities.”
From experience accumulated in previous management roles together with ‘front line’ experience working with a highly regarded metropolitan agency, Stephanie is passionate about the need and impact that providing skilled, harmonious home support can contribute. From the time of arrival of new born babies, through every age, stage and illness with children, to helping out or caring for her client’s parents – or even providing an extra pair of hands at a special social event - Henrietta's Help @ Home tailors a specific response to meet your home need.
Hailing originally from Western Australia, it was not surprising that Stephanie’s early career was influenced by the mining sector leading her to senior roles in stockbroking, then marketing positions with national and international funds management companies initially in Perth, then Melbourne and Sydney.
Subsequent private consulting roles gave exposure and insight into health services – including working in a major hospital, a leading disability services organization, hospitality management, medical research and education institutions. Stephanie’s management achievements include completely reviewing operations and rebuilding the team, at a large loss making hospitality venue to achieve its maiden profit in 4 months, and founding and managing a specialty retail business which won an Australian Achievement Award for Excellence in Customer Relations in its 3rd year of operations, competing against larger and more established businesses in that sector.
After a life time of being engrossed in inner city life, Stephanie was ready to make a sea-change/tree-change and follow her strong desire to build a multi-facetted home service business specifically focused on the Mornington Peninsula. While individual services are clearly established in various centers of population and specific institutions or organizations,
it was apparent that the steady growth of permanent population of all ages, as well as the significant seasonal influxes, was leaving unmet service demand across the region.
The goal is to meet demand through steady growth, engaging experienced, qualified, dedicated staff to liaise with the Peninsula population. As well as providing service to client families, the agency model will also provide employment opportunities across a wide range of activities and occupations. Henrietta’s Help @ Home is proud to provide equal opportunity employment for men and women in this sector as a full time career supporting their professional goals, as well as to the many individuals who either want satisfying part time work or are underemployed in their chosen careers.
Welcome to Henrietta’s Help @ Home –
‘Our help – your home’
- whether it be for a once only, reoccurring or long term need.
“Stephanie’s experience in child care and elderly care spans more than 10 years.
I highly recommend her to successfully direct her own business.”
"Stephanie has been a delightful presence in our home every week (as a part time nanny/after-school carer). Her high-energy levels and sense of humour have really endeared her to our kids. She is extremely pleasant to deal with and clearly takes great pride in her work. As an added bonus, she's also an excellent cook!"
Undoubtedly the time she committed to ‘front line’ experience in this and other roles in the agency, coupled with her previous corporate career will be the right ‘recipe’ for success for Henrietta’s.”
