I came to America as a young woman. Although I already had a degree in architecture and design, I wanted to start my life anew in America. I didn’t speak English, so I made sure my first goal was to learn the language and find a job.
Things started out a bit rough, as I was robbed the first week I arrived, and all my money, luggage and even my credit cards and passport were stolen. But tens of thousands of people came to this country over the past two hundred and fifty years with much less than what I had, so I just picked myself up and kept going.
I found work at a reputable contracting company in South Florida, eventually making my way up the corporate ladder. But I realized very quickly that the services they were providing were less than excellent, and I saw shortcuts being taken time and again – overpricing of jobs, sloppy workmanship, and so on. These were not the values I was raised with, and I knew I could do better. I figured that maybe it was time for a woman to get into the contracting field and try to offer a different kind of remodeling service – one based not on greed and taking advantage of the customer, but one based on honesty and relationships first.
Back then I didn’t realize that there weren’t any state-licensed female contractors in Florida. I was informed time and time again that “women don’t belong in the construction industry”. But I have now been providing residents across South Florida the finest personal contracting services for almost twenty years. My goal is simple – treat my clients with respect and caring, charge a fair price and provide the best service I can. Do an excellent job, do it right the first time – and if something goes wrong you fix it. Period. Care more about your clients than making money and your business will do fine. It’s really that simple.
As a minority woman, I started my business on the conviction that everyone should be treated like family and that a woman can perform high-level contracting services as well as any man (and oftentimes better!).
