“I have always been envious of people who were passionate about what they were doing. Their passion seemed to drive them to the top of their professions. Ironically, in many instances, it was their God given talent in the first place. My God given talent is speaking and I also have a passion for training. I love to train. I also have 20 years of experience managing a residential cleaning company. Through the years I have always felt there was a need for professional training in the residential cleaning service industry. I am so excited that I now have the time, experience and talent to be able to help fill this void”
