MEET THE TIME FAIRIES
Who We Are
As lifestyle managers, Dr. Sandra Walker and Que Burns - both native Illinoisans founded The Time Fairies in 2020 and have anchored their business in the mission and joy of helping discerning professionals recapture their personal time.
The two single mothers connected organically after both working for over two decades as accountants and financial analysts.
Que is honored to serve the professional community with her organizational talents gleaned from these experiences and her sustained passion for making people’s lives easier.
“Having a big impact on people’s lives is why I love doing what I do. Everyone could use a little help – so I thought to myself - If I had another me, how much more could I get accomplished in a day's time? One of us could grocery shop, do laundry and run errands while the other could focus on more personal commitments like reservations or appointments.”
Que has an honest, straightforward, and mainly a fun approach to relationships and business. Her enthusiasm for life, sense of humor, dedication, loyalty, and her diligent work ethic are just a few of her best qualities.
Sandra found that being a Lifestyle Manager used all of her talents and found it very rewarding.
“We would like to look at doing corporate services but for now we've centered our focus on non-profits and startups nationwide."
Sandra’s accommodating nature allows her to manage multiple tasks with ease. Her outstanding leadership skills have proven themselves as an invaluable asset. Anyone who knows Sandra is wowed by her knowledge, character and ability to produce positive outcomes.
