My name is Kate and I'm the President of Tried-and-True Home Inspections. I am both an InterNACHI Certified Professional Inspector and ASHI Inspector. I currently live in Medford NJ with my partner and daughter.
I first picked up a power tool when I was in high school. Using tools has always felt natural to me and I learned how to use them correctly and safely; I built sets for plays and my own furniture. In 2003 I received my undergraduate degree in communications from the University of New Orleans. In 2006 I graduated from Drexel University with a master's degree in technical communication.
After years of working in an office, I decided to get out from behind a desk and start a handy-girl business; I helped people fix and maintain their homes. Home repair, improvement, and maintenance was something I had always done for myself and my friends. Creating a business around it made sense. The real satisfaction came with educating my clients about how to do the maintenance themselves. Becoming a home inspector was the natural next step for me. I attended the Inspector Education Institute in Robbinsville, NJ and received an excellent education that set the foundation for the work required to obtain a home inspector license.
If there’s one thing I want my clients to walk away with it’s knowledge. My home inspection report is more than a bargaining tool in a real estate transaction. It’s a lesson book full of useful information. I am a teacher providing my clients with the very best education. With my wide variety of experience, vast skill set, and solid education, I help my clients confidently make the biggest purchase of their life and maintain it for years to come.
