Rhonda Allen grew up on Nantucket Island where she attended Nantucket High School, and then went UMASS Amherst where she graduated with a Bachelor's degree in Psychology. During high school, she began her career in the hospitality industry at one of the island's most beloved spots, The Jared Coffin House. Rhonda worked at the Inn's restaurant and catered private events as a server there for 17 seasons, and then went to The Seagrille, where she has become a staple. After being on island for over 40 years, she’s learned everything there is to know about hospitality, vacationing and tourism on Nantucket. In 2005, The Chamber of Commerce honored Rhonda with the “Hospitality Award” commending her for going above and beyond in all facets of the industry.
In the spring of 2014, Rhonda decided to combine her in-depth knowledge of the service industry and her love of people by opening a concierge and errand service called “Help Me Rhonda”. Her goal was to assist island residents and visitors with time-consuming tasks that take away from their Nantucket enjoyment. By providing a service that allows her clients to enjoy a stress-free environment, they can leave their worries behind and enjoy everything Nantucket has to offer.
Help Me Rhonda Concierge & Errand Service offers conveniences such as provisioning, running errands, vacation planning, scheduling appointments and activities, finding and coordinating service personnel, and assisting in household management services.
