My name is Karen Tonks and I am the owner and founder of Time Genies. I am from Scotland, where I spent the first 34 years of my life before heading across the pond to North Carolina. My idea to start a small business came out of my passion for serving and helping others and a desire to give back to my community, and I love getting to work with this incredible team!
My name is Suzanne Cunningham and I have been serving as the office manager for Time Genies since Fall of 2016. I recently moved to Hickory from Cullowhee, North Carolina. In addition to helping Karen manage the business, I serve as a home cleaner and organizer, home decorator, errand runner, and administrative worker for our clients. My favorite thing about Time Genies is the great diversity. My motto outside of work is "great family, friends, and food!"
