I grew up in the trades. My Dad was a master plumber and a true "jack-of-all -trades," teaching me how to turn a wrench before I could throw a baseball. After working with him on nights and weekends through High School, I became his full-time apprentice. I worked for many years operating a very successful home improvement business building additions, man caves, decks, porches & sheds and renovating kitchens and bathrooms. I installed roofing, tile, siding, flooring and nearly everything in between. I also worked as a part-time consultant/project manager for a successful home renovation company who specialized in renewing old houses in economically depressed urban areas.
Since moving to Florida, I have worked as a Carpenter and Licensed Home Inspector.
We not only fullfill training mandates set by the State of Florida and the International Association of Certified Home Inspectors, I far exceed them. My goal has been to double the required training standards, while not just learning from the book, but from seeking hands-on up-to-date training from other experts in the field.
I began my career in construction in 1984 with a man that would become my husband. I worked side by side with David learning construction from framing to finish carpentry. I started my own remodeling business in 1992, building the business on honesty and integrity with ninety eight percent of my business being repeat or referral. In 2008 with the decline of the economy I left Florida to survive and moved to PA and worked with a multi inspector firm learning the inspection business from some of the best inspectors in PA. Today I continue my education, while keeping up with the changes in the industry. I moved back to Florida in 2015 to work with a multi inspector firm and now I look forward to having control of my destiny as I begin this new chapter of my life as a partner in High Tide Home Inspections. I enjoy working with buyers and their agents, so they can make the best decision possible on the largest investment of their lives.
