Founder & Owner of ALE Solutions, Inc.
At an early age, I learned that hard work, passion and commitment
lead to success.
My mom paved the way for our family to realize the "American Dream." I was
only 2 when my mom left behind my dad and her 4 children and immigrated to
the United States from the Philippines in search of a better opportunity for us.
While my mom was in the U.S., my grandmother taught me how to survive.
She used to take me to the open market every weekend, where we would find
a good location to set up our bamboo mat and sell the vegetables we grew.
My mom juggled 2 or sometimes 3 Nursing jobs. After 5 years, my mom's dream
finally came true! She became a U.S. Citizen and had saved enough money to
bring all of us to this country. My mom’s strong work ethic, determination
and vision taught me to always give 110% and to "Dream Big!" Thanks Mom!
In 2001, I realized a dream of my own and started ALE Solutions from the
basement of my home. I was determined to build a company based on
integrity and heart.
From paying my way through college at University of Illinois – Chicago, to
pursuing careers in retail, advertising and consulting – I love a challenge.
My prior experience in the temporary housing industry sparked ideas about
building a better mousetrap. I launched ALE with a desire to provide an
easier and more transparent way to serve the needs of displaced policyholders.
Driven to be the best that I can be, I find joy in making memorable
experiences for our customers.
As ALE grew, so did my family. I am the mother of three boys, who bring out
the kid in me. They challenge me to imagine what the future will look like. They
convict me to stay ahead of technology and to never take business for granted.
I want our clients to rely on ALE to create innovative, fun, easy-to-use solutions.
Today, I am involved in every facet of ALE, working with management to ensure
the company delivers exemplary service and exceeds the needs of insurance
carriers. ALE has grown into a dynamic, nationwide temporary housing
company that employs hundreds of people and serves thousands. I have also
created a 501c( 3) nonprofit arm, ALECares, that brings to life the passion with
which the ALE team approaches their work on a very human, personal level. It
humbles me to see the commitment that everyone on the ALE team exhibits
as they go above and beyond for our customers.
Though we have experienced tremendous growth, I remain passionate about
being available to any customer, any time with one phone call.
I love my job!
My vision for the future includes continued company growth that benefits
both customers and employees.
"God has blessed me and I want to be a good
steward of that blessing for others.”
