STUDIO CITY ( — Whether you’re a busy CEO or a time-strapped parent, we all have days where it’d be nice to call on a personal assistant.

Run Around Betties is a novel service that provides personal assistants to help with home, office or holiday errands.

Services are available to residents in Los Angeles and Orange counties, as well as the San Fernando Valley.

Michelle McCloskey, president of Run Around Betties, visited KCAL9 News Saturday with one of the Betties, Jenna, to talk about their unique business.

Betties can do everything from gift delivery to last minute shopping to waiting in lines at the post office.

The Betties are carefully screened with background checks and clients are matched with a person who best fits their needs.
