Mary Louise Starkey began Starkey & Associates, Inc. in January 1981, offering housekeeping and placement services. In November 1989, Mary Starkey created Starkey International Institute for Household Management in response to marketplace requests for trained and skilled professionals. Since its first class offering in January of 1990, the Institute has benefited from the presence of old-world European and American Butlers, experienced service professionals, and Household and Estate Managers from the United States and abroad.

The Starkey Curriculum teaches Private Service expertise and an organizational structure which supports the management of complex homes and lifestyles. The curriculum is creative, interactive and transformational in style. A conceptual and hands-on education, the Starkey Curriculum teaches the Household Manager to identify and attend to the specific needs or Service Standards of the Principal and household.

Starkey International History and PhilosophyThe Private Service Management profession in America has been growing rapidly. Over the years, Starkey has produced mature, seasoned veterans who are continuing to set the standards in Private Service, as does Starkey's work in helping new clientele identify their needs.

The success of the Starkey International Institute for Household Management is based on the commitment to redefine the time-honored service profession in terms of the modern, upscale American service and quality-of-life expectations.

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.
