My name is Janni Juhasz-Smith.  I am the mother of 3 children, 5 step children and a new grandchild. 

I have been a member of the Boy Scouts of America for 15 years.  I attended Wood Badge training in 1996 and loved every minute of it.  I started a High Adventure troop and as the Scout Master we traveled to the Grand Tetons and Yellowstone National Park where we back packed for 3 days in the mountains & rafted the Snake River.  We stopped along the way to see Mount Rushmore, Devils Tower and the Bad Lands.  We also went to Europe and attended a High Adventure Scout camp in Switzerland called Kanderstag.  On the way home we stopped in Paris and London.  We as a troop were able to experience spalunking, white water rafting, rock climbing, rappelling, snow shoeing, skiing, snow tubing, and thats just the tip of the iceburg.  I have many fond memories of all the kids I was able to get to know and guide and wouldn't trade those experiences for all the money in the world.

Over ten years ago I decided when my youngest started school I could not stay home anymore (I would go crazy!)  I landed a job as a secretary in a local pest control company.  I couldn't stand being the secretary, answering phones and not having any knowledge of the business so that I could answer questions that customers would ask.  So I started training in the field.  Of course from there I became a technician in the field doing many, many pest inspections for customers that were purchasing new homes.  As a licensed pest inspector in the State of Ohio and Michigan I am required to receive 5 hours of continuing education every 2 years.

After about 2 years I decided I wanted to be a home inspector.  I went to school in Bethesda, MD at Hometech Seminars (one of the best in the country at the time) in May of 2000.  I came back from Bethesda and started my business.
