Meet Theresa Golish, our stain removal specialist. Theresa celebrates her 6th year with Classic Cleaners this May. When your stained items come into our plant, Theresa is the individual who diligently works to get every spot out so your item looks new again.
Get to know her via our recent Q-&-A session. You’ll notice that she’s one of our most loyal employees and she’s devoted to her family.
Q: If you had to change your full name, what would you call yourself ?
A: Jasmine Jewel. I think every girl likes flowers and jewelry (and it’s what I named my Daughter).
Q: Where were you born?
A: Anderson, IN
Q: What is your favorite kind of challenge on the job?
A: Taking an item that looks “trashed” and making it look brand new.
Q: What is your favorite tool at Classic Cleaners and why?
A: We call it a Susie but it’s called a Form Finisher. Once an item is cleaned, this tool makes finishing so much easier. It steams, drys and shapes the garment to like-new condition.
Q: What do you enjoy most about working at Classic Cleaners?
A: Working 5 days a week and having Holidays off.
Q: What is your favorite type of fabric and why?
A: Polyester because it’s the easiest material to remove spots from and it’s nice to wear.
Q: What do you enjoy doing in your spare time?
A: Sunbathing, riding Harleys and having bonfires with my Family & Friends.
Q: If you were a toy, what toy would you be?
A: Tinkerbell because it’s my Daughter’s favorite character.
Q: If you were asked to speak to a graduating high school class, what would you say?
A: Choose a career you’re going to be happy with – not just for financial reasons. Choose something you’re going to enjoy each day. Remember that even when something doesn’t go your way, life goes on and things can change for the better.
Q: If you had a time machine and could be transported to any time, the past or the future, what time and place would you choose and why?
A: 1990 was a good year. I was younger and had my whole life ahead of me. I love my family but back then, I was old enough to be responsible but young enough to be more carefree.
Q: If you had to spend 100 days on a deserted island, what five things would you take with you and why?
1. Toothbrush – I couldn’t stand not being able to brush my teeth.
4. Shampoo – I like to be clean.
5. Matches for my bonfires and to cook food.
Thank you, Theresa, for letting our Customers get to know you and for a great job de-spotting our favorite clothing items!
