How long have you been a CREWBaltimore member or member company?
Theresa Tsamoutalis and Allsafe Elevator Inspections joined in 2011.
In 2-3 sentences, what do you want CREWBaltimore members to know about your company?
I am very proud of Allsafe. In 2009 when I was 27, I started the company in the very small basement of a home in Canton that I rented with 3 other roommates. Now in 2020 along with a much larger management team, we have 5 offices and we perform inspections and consulting work across the country.
What the benefits of women supporting women in the CRE industry?
The benefits are momentous. If we help each other along the way, the journey is easier for us together and then easier for those also along the path. Breaking through the “glass” ceiling alone does not have the long-term impact if you are not leading others behind you. Ultimately, it also makes work more fun and rewarding.
Best book or article you’ve read that had you fired up to take on the day/week/year at work?
A Daily Devotional by Father Barnabas Powell:
(https://www.ancientfaith.com/podcasts/faithencourageddaily)- and you do not need to be a Greek Orthodox Christian to enjoy it!
Every morning, I read this reflection and it helps set the tone for my day or helps me reset nervous energy or anxiousness.
Which CREWBaltimore event are you most excited about this year?
CREWMates!!!! I think this program will be a game changer. It is so many things, yet so simple. It’s a mastermind alliance, a small group network, a think tank, and professional & personal support group within CREWBaltimore. What will come of these small groups is professional development no matter where you are in your career. Per the White Paper, those later in their career need this support the most. We will do this while having fun too because ultimately life is too short not to have fun and have a few laughs.
