The woman on the left side of this image is Juana Morales -- my mother. My family knows her best as Reina, which means queen in Spanish.
Juana is originally from Jalapa, Guatemala. She immigrated to the United States in 1992 along with her three siblings, nieces, nephews, and my older sister. She made her first home for herself in Waltham, MA, working several entry level jobs to sustain herself and the rest of our family. Later on she was introduced to janitorial work, which led her to become a solopreneur as a housekeeper in the Greater Boston Area. Her business has been blooming ever since, teaching her the ins and outs of the cleaning industry. Without her diligence and loyal clientele, Your Home Detox would not exist today.
Juana has been cleaning homes for 20+ years with work ethic that is meticulous and unmatched. I know this from experience, after working by her side for many years, she has been an impactful teacher. As a mother, she was quick to check up on everything I cleaned and made sure I was matching her flawless standards. I used to hate the scolding, but I am especially grateful for her guidance.
To the right is me, Karla. My mom is the woman who inspired me to expand her cleaning business. With her permission, we aspire to transform it into a business with a purpose that will last even after she’s retired.
