Describe your business: I provide professional radon testing services for residential properties using state of the art continuous radon monitors.

Why did you start your own business? My mom passed away from lung cancer in 1999. She was a smoker but while doing research I found out that non-smokers can get lung cancer too. Radon is the leading cause of lung cancer in non-smokers. I have been relentless in getting the word out there ever since her death.

Tell us something unique about your business: Everyone thinks I have multiple employees that do the testing. They don't realize that I am the one answering the phone, driving from house to house doing the tests, billing and providing customer service. I wear all of the hats!

What's the best part of owning your own business? Satisfaction in knowing that I personally can assist people in having a healthier home and body.
