Summary

I have gained over 15 years of housekeeping, organizing, and interior design experience. Starting out as a young stay at home mom I began my  journey in providing a clean and beautiful environment for my family. I quickly learned that my passion was in helping others and bringing cleanliness and orginazation together came natural to me. I felt a strong sense of accomplishment and realized how much I could really help others with their homes. That desire brought me to my formal training, which then lead me to becoming a business owner. I have always had a passion for homes and creating beautiful spaces.


My background:

I received formal training in professional, high end residential housekeeping in Seatle, Washington. I worked with a team up there for about a year before relocating back to my home town in Palm Springs, Ca. With my experience and knowledge in housekeeping I was interested in starting a new "eco friendly" cleaning business here in California.

After the birth of my son, and with hard work and determination in 2012, I was the new owner/ operator of a eco friendly residential cleaning business, serving the Coachella valley. I named my company "Designer Clean". With my moto being, "Designer Clean.... Not just clean... Pristine!" I built my own website from a template I found online. With detailed service lists, I added everything I was offering, neatly, organized and clearly stated. I printed my own door cards, business cards, flyers, coupons, and my own polo shirt with my company name. My company grew over the first two years in operation. I enjoyed my work, and gained amazing experience in sales, marketing and advertising, through building my business from the ground up. Most of my clients were one time cleanings or seasonal residents. So due to the fluctuations in clientele that our seasonal town brings, unfortunately there isn't enough demand to keep it going anymore. I am now currently looking to secure a more consistent and reliable career. I'm very interested in all areas of customer service and would love the opportunity to expand my skills with a new career path.

With my cleaning business, I learned so much about how to sell myself, and the services I was offering. But most importantly I learned that I have to become what my clients needed. Even if they didn't know it yet. I was the key to bringing them a healthier, happier, stress free environment. They needed me.

I work hard to always keep good comunication and always be trustworthy, reliable, and dependable. I strive to deliver the best service I can offer with hard work and dedication. I am caring by nature and love helping others.

I think I would fit well dealing in the customer service industry. I would love the opportunity to be a part of a team and have a hand at growing your business! Thank you so much for your time and your consideration!
