Describe your business. Did you find it, or did it find you?Unique Aeriography does low-altitude aerial photography with a balloon from 15 to 500 feet, and from different sides at varying angles. Our clients get clear, detailed images that outline precisely what they want to see. Our work is environmentally pure—no noise, no pollutants and no impact. We are winners of the “2013 Sustainable Business” award. My business found me. I started it with my German son, Rainer, who photographed archeological sites for German television with fantastic results.
How are you involved with both the community and your customer?We are members of the chambers of commerce in Sacramento and El Dorado County. Before every photo shoot, we meet with our customers at the site to learn what is important to them, and then we deliver that and more. Privately, we are members of the Kiwanis Club of Roseville, and we love Stammtisch El Dorado, a German club that does events like Mayfest, Oktoberfest and more.
What life accomplishments are you most proud of?I have raised, as a divorced mother, four loving, caring, supportive and successful children who all live in Germany and have great relationships with each other.
What’s your biggest job perk?Seeing the faces of our customers when they look at their photos.
What’s your favorite place to eat out locally?I love lobster, so Red Lobster in Citrus Heights, and Cascada in Placerville.
What’s your favorite local business other than your own?ArtiFact Ink and Spot-On Signs in Placerville. They support me with all of my business needs and do excellent work.
If you could be any other profession, what would it be?A healer.
And finally, customer service is…?It is essentially important, combined with doing the best job possible.
