Later, she would discover her passion for finances and work in accounting, ultimately leading her back to business ownership where she could let that passion and skillset flourish here at Journey!
She believes that her previous experiences and positions, combined with her upbringing, molded her into the highly successful management professional and entrepreneur she is today. She played an integral part in Journey's rapid success, which has become a multi-inspector firm in just a few short months. In her free time, she loves to read books, travel, garden, and watch romance or mystery movies. She has recently gotten into running and is actively training for the Ragnar Race in September.
When asked what her favorite part is about running a home inspection company, she said: “I really like the administrative side of it all. I love making the process of buying a home so much easier for our clients. I love helping people — that's what makes me truly happy. And now I get to do that all the time!” She is committed to helping Journey Home Inspection Services fulfill its mission to make people's lives better and leading a company with integrity, purpose, and devotion to serving the Kingdom of God.

With his background in custom residential electrical, he brought an unbeatable level of detail and craftsmanship to every home he renovated. That same quality and excellence is in every home that Philip inspects.
Outside of owning his own pressure washing business, he is a husband, loves the outdoors and is the middle child of eleven siblings! Growing up in a large family pushed him to be out of his comfort zone a lot, so Philip is a very easy and outgoing person, and makes friends with everyone.
When asked why he chose home inspecting, he said “My career has been in the construction field my whole life, and making people's dreams a reality has been the best part. So making sure that homeowners are buying the home of their dreams and not their worst nightmare is something I love the most.”
