Helping Hand

Patra Brannon Isaac ’11 started her business in 2008 after a career as a corporate auditor that required her to travel up to 75 percent of the time throughout Europe and Australia. While great to work in new and exciting places, it was hard to manage the demands of life at home in Houston being so far away. Many friends and acquaintances complained about the same thing.

When she transitioned into a new career in HR with much less travel, she wanted to help other professionals who faced similar stresses. And her concierge business was born.

My-Handler is a boutique concierge business helping people handle work and life. It’s focused on providing convenient and affordable services that meet the demands of busy professionals, primarily in the Houston area. It is a trusted resource for small business owners, consultants, attorneys, project managers and many others.

The company continues to build new client relationships and help solve the demands of busy Houstonians. My-Handler was named a Houston Super Bowl LI diverse supplier, providing ad hoc services to assist with special projects organized by the Super Bowl Host Committee’s Business Connect program.

“We felt blessed to play a small role in the success of the Super Bowl LI programming, landing a few contracts and an ongoing client relationship with an NFL representative," said Patra Brannon Isaac. "We have already received a call for a new project requesting virtual assistant support post-Super Bowl and can’t wait to help handle it!”

Patra works full-time as regional director, Harris County, Leadership ISD.
