Gorgeous Window and Gutter began when the rising population and costs of Portland had me looking for a change and a way to get back to a simpler lifestyle.
I started in this industry in 2014 when looking for a career shift. I was hired as a field technician, by a large exterior cleaning company based in Seattle who provided a great three-week training program. I quickly discovered that my background in climbing lent itself to the work, and I appreciated the move outdoors over my former position working at a desk under stale lighting. When I started working for the company I treated each customer's home with the attention to detail as if it were my parents'. Over time, however, that mentality was compromised by commission based pay and company revenue goals. I started enjoying the work less and knew something needed to change.
Having discovered an industry I excelled in, my predisposition to entrepreneurialism combined with my customer service and quality assurance background led me into the decision to start my own business. My life-long love of the outdoors made the Columbia River Gorge an obvious location choice; thus Gorgeous Window & Gutter was born.
A native Oregonian born in Forest Grove, I naturally took to the outdoors. I do my best to take in everything this beautiful state has to offer. In my spare time, I enjoy biking, hiking, backpacking, sailing, snowboarding, kayaking, and dabble in a variety of team sports. I pursue my work and hobbies with equal passion, giving 100%.
I truly enjoy helping people and doing work that gives me the satisfaction of a job well-done. I started this company to do quality work for people who need it, to make a living on my terms, and to enjoy what I do. Being paid commission, having tightly scheduled days, and having limited contact with the customers wasn't doing it for me. If you decide to have GW&G do work for you, you'll see the difference.
