In 1952, long before child labor laws, I was the 1st son born to a hard working, loving family, a mother & father who both worked to make ends meet. My father managed a large dairy farm with one of his brothers. Together there were 6 children which in the
50’s was a labor pool. With a one acre garden, 400 plus Jersey milk cows to care for and 125 acres of land to maintain, everyone was busy & tired, but happy we did not live in the city.
Prior to the dairy life, my father had, as all my many uncles had done, worked for the oldest brother, building homes. Fresh out of the military, all were expected to start a new life as tradesmen with the family business.
As my father honed his carpentry skills, when I was 14 years old, he and I built our first home, our home. From that time on, we were asked to build others, as many as 2 to 3 per year. Always custom, never track homes, and I learned every phase of how a house goes together, step by step.
I lost my dad in 1973 and started as an apprentice electrician, soon to become a journeyman, always around the residential housing industry. I relocated to San Antonio, TX in 1986. I remodeled my first realtor’s home and then three more, all in a row. All of which sold quickly. The word was out amongst realtors and the phone has never stopped ringing.
With my experiences in building homes, every step from concrete to finished roofs, remodeling came easy, taking homes apart, redesigning and rebuilding them better than originally built. Knowing this business from the inside out and my attention to detail and having a strong work ethic, has proven to be extremely valuable to both Skilled Remodeling Services and our many happy first time and repeat customers.
Born into a Military family in 1966, I have lived in several countries and cities throughout the United States. I attended 13 schools in 12 years and began working at the age of 15.
In 1993, I met my late husband and began working with him in his home improvement company. He taught me everything from advertising to purchasing quality products and hiring qualified installers. We specialized in siding, windows and custom doors.
In 2002 we found that Corpus Christi didn’t have enough siding and window companies so myhusband would commute weekly for 10 years. During that time I was able to occupy my time by working for a Pre-cast concrete fencing company as a Customer Services Representative, a Sunroom Company as a Marketing Manager and for over 4 years, I have worked for Skilled Remodeling Services, a General Contractor, where we specialize in Kitchen & Bath Remodeling. I began as a Marketing Manager and have also been the Office Manager for the past 4 years. I have seen this company grow through hard work and integrity. We have added many new services and our referral business is the best I have ever witness in my career.
In the past 20 years, I have learned a great deal about home remodeling and customer service. I believe that our clients deserve quality customer services and products and I strive to provide both.
