John and I, along with our three kiddos moved to Gilbert, Arizona, ten years ago and have lived in Shamrock Estates, then Power Ranch, then built a home on a county island and currently reside in Portofino. It’s exhausting just to think about all the moving but one of the many things that we enjoy is remodeling homes and interior design.
Our oldest child, Jaden will be a sophomore at Casteel High school and she stays busy playing volleyball year-round. She has played for Casteel’s indoor team since seventh grade and played for Casteel’s sand team this past year. Currently, she is playing for a sand club team called Volley4Life.
Our middle child, Korbin, will be in eighth grade at Casteel and he is all about football. He played for Casteel last year and will play again this year. In between his school seasons, he plays with a league to stay active and competitive.
Our youngest, Merrik, is going into sixth grade at Riggs Elementary and is also all about football. He has been playing with the same team for many years and can’t wait to play for Casteel next year.
John and I have been married for 18 wonderful years as of August 5. We are a family that enjoys exploring new places, hiking, biking, boating, hanging with friends, wine and the boys of the house are very into CARS.
John has been in the HVAC industry since he was 19 and my background is Business/HR so deciding to start an Air Conditioning and Heating Company made sense to us after moving to Arizona and hearing all the distrust for service providers. We started Arizona’s Dukes of Air and have really enjoyed watching it evolve. For those of you who have, or had your own business, I am sure that you can relate to the roller coaster ride of ups and down that it can be. We are a part of the Seville Business networking group and we’re proud to actively support Riggs, Casteel and many other schools in the area. Our entire family works together to participate in local events throughout the year and we find them to be very rewarding.
We’re members of the Seville Country Club and enjoy spending time hanging out, meeting new people and participating in the events. One of our family goals is to take a BIG family trip once a year along with some long weekends to a beach. Most recently we visited Destin, Florida, and Rocky Point, Mexico. We are planning for a first trip to Hawaii next year and would love your feedback before we go.
If you see us around the neighborhood please say “hi” and if you ever need help with your HVAC system or just have a question, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
