Mrs. Mary Louise Starkey speaks about private service.

For over a quarter century, Mrs. Mary Louise Starkey, the First Lady of Service, has dedicated herself to “Setting the Standard” in Private Service excellence through unique, intensive education programs and training. Originally operating a consulting firm for employers of Nannies and Housekeepers in the 1980s, Mrs. Starkey saw a rising need for a new level of household professional: the Household Manager.
However, the question became where to find the dedicated professionals to fulfill this new need. The answer was the creation of a first-of-its-kind Starkey International Institute for Household Management. Guided by her vision of transforming the paradigm of “servitude” into “Service as an Expertise,” Mrs. Starkey has written textbooks, customized curriculum and patented a Service Delivery System Model especially for the private service profession. Through her diligent efforts, the career path of “Household Management” is now an official career recognized by the Department of Labor.
Mrs. Starkey’s worldwide search for “service as an art form” has given her a unique perspective of the Luxury Market. From traveling across Europe and the United States to conduct Site Visits and Private Trainings for the Luxury Market, Mrs. Starkey has been privileged to support the behind-the-scenes lifestyles of the wealthiest in the world. While she never breaks confidentiality, her stories bring to life what Service as an Expertise can come to mean — and how rewarding it is to both the Principal and the Private Service Professional.
Mrs. Starkey is the Founder and President of Starkey International Institute for Household Management based in Denver, Colorado.

There are no words to express how ridiculous these accusations are. This seems like an act of an individual that wants to shame and misjudge a woman that has worked hard to make her name and brand in this country, a woman that has been the aide of and for so many members of the African American community and many others from various countries myself included.

Starkey International, is the best Estate and Household mngmt program in the country and arguably the world. As a graduate of both the standard and advanced course; as a practicing manager of a 50k sq ft primary and multiple residence operation; having a degree in hotel/restaurant mnmgt and been in military service for 24 years I feel fairly qualified to make these following statements.
