"People often ask me, is it hard to work with your husband? I challenge them to watch their spouse at work for a week. When I did, I realized how hard he works and how dedicated he is.  I saw him in a whole new way. We love owning and building our own business, and the feeling of knowing we are helping people, every day, with the service we provide."
