Our Mission

Quite simply, to do handiwork right.  This is our tagline and the core idea of Checklist. We have accomplished our mission when you scratch your head and wonder if you just did business with a handyman company, an industry not known for its professionalism.

Core Team


President and Owner

As a native New Yorker and mom of four, Tasha knows all too well the strain of a never-ending to do list. She began working for Checklist in 2014 as a part-time bookkeeper, immediately showing her strengths in operations — working “in” the business — which enabled founder Liz to focus on company growth and marketing — working “on” the business.  Tasha rose quickly through the ranks, fine-tuning Checklist’s scheduling, estimating, hiring, and bookkeeping processes, all while maintaining Checklist’s premium service ethic. She transformed a part-time job into a career, and ultimately to business ownership. Working for a woman-owned business rooted in a foundation of trust and consistency, Tasha brings professionalism to an industry where it is lacking.  In late 2017 Liz sold controlling interest in Checklist and Tasha became President.

Liz is the founder of Checklist Home Services. The catalyst for Checklist was buying a home in 2007. She DIY’d much of the renovation, and hired handymen to help with some projects. Every handyman she hired underwhelmed her in one way or another.  Those disappointments sparked the idea for a premium handyman service that became Checklist, which she launched in 2011. Once Checklist was established and staffed with a strong team, Liz shifted her attention to developing a product that had been in her head for years — an enclosure for trash cans — which was spun off from Checklist in 2016 into a company called CITIBIN.
