In the South, people often call me a “rare breed.” I think they’re referring to the fact that I’m a third-generation Raleigh native, or possibly my devotion to family, which led me to create The Other Woman after the birth of my first child.

Whatever their reasons, I don’t think I’m a rare breed,  just a fair one. I believe in Karma: What goes around comes around. I’ve lived my life as though everything I send out to the world will be returned to me in kind.

What you might discover about me if we spend time talking:

  • I’m easy-going and try to avoid creating stress. Our office in the Glenwood South area is fun, lighthearted, and engaging. We care take each other as we go about the business of care taking our clients.
  • I care about people. Whether it’s my own family, my employees, my customers, or a stranger, I try to get to know the people around me.  When people depend on me, I do everything in my power to help them. That’s why I pay my employees a living wage. As a single mother and someone who pulled herself up by her bootstraps, I know no one can live on minimum wage income.
  • I am humble. Having climbed the corporate ladder and traveled around the country on business trips, my home is really where my heart is.  Life has brought me many lessons, and I am happy for that experience. True, I started and currently run a successful business that employs a large team, but if you were to ask, I’d say that I simply clean homes. I guess I’m just wired that way.
