Welcome to the Family, Tasley!

Tasley1aWhat Experiences Best Prepare a Person to Answer 247 Phone Calls A Week from Realtors Scheduling Home Inspections?  How About Dolphin Trainer, Snowboard Instructor and Certified Therapy Dog Trainer? Yep, That’s HomePro Inspections’ Tasley Wheeler!

Being raised in the frozen tundra known as Rochester, New York and being in love with of all things outdoors, it’s not odd that Tasley Wheeler would become a snow board instructor.  And it’s not odd that  like 98.3% of the Rochester population that Tasley yearned to live in sunny Florida.

As you well know, there are NO jobs in Jacksonville for snowboard instructors, so what’s a reasonable career choice….how about being a dolphin trainer at Marineland? When off the mountain and out of the saltwater Tasley takes her mammal training skills to Therapy Dog International where she trains certified therapy dogs who provide comfort and companionship to wounded warriors in vetarens hospitals.  She is also active in placing retired therapy dogs into homes, including her own home with Dozer, a retired certified therapy dog.


Tasley2aTasley’s experience with training dolphins and certified therapy dogs as been a real asset to training and scheduling the (5) Certified Master Inspectors at HomePro.  She treats each inspector with a fish or a bone if they get a 5 Star Google review from you.  All mammals train basically the same.

Among the other fun facts about Tasley, she does not own a television, so when you call to schedule your next home inspection, no need to ask about who her favorite is on The Voice, she has never seen the show!

Tasley 3aHow did Tasley get her name?  Tasley is coastal town on the eastern shore of Virginia where Tasleys’ parents spent a night 9 months before she was born.  Seems it was a memorable night!

xLarry stylin1Not to be outdone in the time off department, Certified Master Inspector Larry Newland and his wife Jeanie took the grand-kids on a trip to his old haunts on Miami’s  South Beach.


So what was Certified Master Inspector Allen Schimmelmann and me doing while the rest of the team was swimming with dolphins and dancing with wolves….we were crawling on our bellies in crawlspaces!
