Why Type A Home?
Definition of Type ‘A’ Personality:
A temperament characterized by excessive ambition, aggression, competitiveness, drive, impatience, need for control, focus on quantity over quality and unrealistic sense of urgency.
Well, we’re not hostile here, we love our jobs and love helping people. Since the beginning, though I’ve run the business very structured with staff, customer agreements and “policy”. I focus highly on quality- given the time we need in some cases we do exceptional, besides that, we are exceptional.
Wanting to grow into a self-made woman-owned, one of kind business, going from starving artist to great ideas woman entrepreneur lead empire, maybe the quantity the definition of Type A expresses for me. The need for Home Wellness and Lifestyle Management is ever so pressing with everybody always in a hurry. The desire to please customers NOW may be the unrealistic sense of urgency expressed in the definition as well.
As a people, we are all outfitted to some degree as Type A and Type B personalities. I chose the name Type A Home for my business because I was never happy with the performance of other company’s in my home and felt that I was too Type A to have anyone else manage my home the way I wanted it- No one did that! Still today I continue to manage my own home or use my own trusted staff.

Michelle – Your Home Concierge
Throughout my life everything I’ve done, it seems, has prepared me for business in Type A Home.
As a small child, my parents instilled in me a serious work ethic. At a young age, I started cleaning, cooking, and staying active in team sports that kept me busy through school semesters and summers.
After high school, I attended The Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA) from which I received a BFA in Fine Art. I went on to earn my Teaching Certification from Towson State University, and then to teach art in grades K-12.
As an art major, I was taught to “see” details in my surroundings. As an art teacher, I was taught process and structure. I learned that planning and creative thinking were important elements in making a successful day a reality.
After college I continued to be involved in the arts, participating in solo and group shows, painting on sets for made-for-TV movies, and working in faux finishing. I worked as a caterer and in gourmet foods, bartended and waited tables, and earned my fitness credentials. For ten years I worked in sales and marketing before starting my Home Wellness business in 2008.
At Type A, we are in tune with the small details in your home to ensure a feeling of Total Home Wellness. I care deeply about the quality of the services we provide. Every individual on our crew is a consciously aware professional who cares enough about your home to deliver consistent and thorough results.
