How did you get into your business or what motivated you to start: "I worked in the airline industry for nearly 15 years until corporate downsizing led me to turn to locksmith work full time. I refined my skills working for a number of area firms, including managing a locksmith shop in Charles Town (W.Va.) for five years.

"In 2000, I was officially certified by the Associated Locksmiths of America (ALOA). ALOA recognition assures consumers that a locksmith upholds the highest business and ethical standards of practice.
