Meet our Founder

I’m Jen, a local mom and Founder of GoPaperboy. I was inspired to launch this site after seeing the positive impact students from right within my community had on my kids.

Like you, I want the best for my family. With four young kids, I needed all sorts of help –some days a homework helper; other days a lacrosse coach; and some days, just a better babysitter. I thought that hiring expensive professionals was my only choice. Until I started to hire local students with specialized skill sets to help me.

These weren’t just any babysitters, these were students with specific talents and skills that aligned with my child’s goals and interests. These students made an impact on my children’s lives far greater than the task they were hired to do.

Finding these students was not an easy task. So I created GoPaperboy for families to connect with local students, and for students to share their skills and make money doing jobs they love.

The last 2 years have already been an incredible journey that started with an idea based on a problem I, like many moms, had. Now I use GoPaperboy all the time to find help, and I hope you will do.

Come ride with us!


P.S.  I get asked about the name all the time.  I love GoPaperboy because it reminds me of local kids doing odd jobs for neighbors.  That’s the community feel I wanted to capture for this site.  We are revolutionizing “the kid across the street.”
