“Before I had my own business, I was teaching Special Education. To teach Special Education you have to be able to run to keep up with the kids — but after I was in a really severe car accident in 2012, I could no longer do that. I couldn’t even walk very well.
That was a really hard time for me. I still miss the kids. But I like what I do now, so it’s been a great transition."
"I've been inspecting homes for eight years now and I definitely have some stories. (laughs)
This one time, I was in this really low crawlspace doing an inspection, and I was inching along deeper and deeper into the space when I suddenly saw these glowing eyes looking at me. I had my flashlight so I shined it ahead and this angry, feral cat was guarding over some of its kittens. Meanwhile, I was on my belly. So, that experience was pretty scary.
There are good stories too. Another time, I was inspecting this couple's house and they were cooking authentic Chinese food and I could smell it and I was just like, “Oh my gosh, whatever you're cooking, I don't even know what it is, it smells so good…” and they invited me to stay for dinner.
It really is an interesting job. I learn or experience something new every day.”
