Teresa: CEO, Founder and President
Born and raised in Acapulco, Mexico, Teresa was one of seven children. Despite a childhood of grave poverty and extreme childhood abuse, Teresa went on to study medicine at U.G. When the university faced difficult times, she, despite being one of the school’s top students, lost her scholarship money and was no longer able to afford the tuition. Despite these set backs, Teresa was determined to live her life to the fullest and at twenty-one, she packed up her bags and moved to the US by herself. There, she quickly found work despite not being able to speak English. For many years, she worked in the beauty and fashion industry and learned English.
When she was in her early twenties, Teresa also began her own cleaning business as a side job. She eventually became so good at it and in demand she formed her own company. Despite having her own team of employees, no one could ever be as good as Teresa. She had a unique way of cleaning and customers loved her incredible professionalism and trustworthiness. Moreover, customers quickly began to realize there was clean, and then there was “Teresa Clean.”
With the many years of experience both in life, and in work, Teresa decided to share her own experiences with others. She hopes she can teach others not just about cleaning or cooking or developing one’s personal style, but would also like to inspire others especially women on how to live and overcome incredible adversity and abuse. Today, Teresa is married and has four children.
