My father started Ideal more than 40 years ago. As a young girl, I tagged along with him to project sites on weekends – watching him take moisture and humidity readings or quality-check the equipment. I remember how committed he was to each project and customer as he helped them recover from the crippling effects of water damage.
While I was impressed with my Dad and his passion for such a dirty business, I never envisioned a career in building recovery and restoration for myself. Fast forward to 10 years ago, when I made the life-changing decision to join the family business. With guidance from my father Butch who oversaw field operations, and my mother Michelle who ran the office, I literally learned the business from the ground up. This included earning certifications and working onsite with our project teams, where I operated the equipment, applied our time-tested methodologies, and eventually advised customers.
The Next Generation
Today, I’m proud to be the owner and chief executive of San Francisco’s premier building recovery solutions company. We’ve expanded beyond water damage to rescue buildings from any natural or man-made disaster or environmental hazard. In fact, any issue that impacts the operation of your business and the safety and health of the building’s occupants and visitors. Most recently, we’ve developed industry-leading capabilities for bio-hazard mitigation and decontamination.
While my management team and I work to grow our company and find innovative ways to solve our customers’ toughest challenges, some things will never change. We will continue to embrace the values that the company was built upon. Most prominent of these is our never-ending commitment to the customer and their stakeholders, as well as the Ideal employees who serve them.
