Inspired by their own experiences and fueled by the kind of change in perspective that only a cancer diagnosis can make, local husband-and-wife team Scott and Jennifer Long are pleased to announce the launch of their new business, TruBlue Total House Care of Sugar Land. TruBlue of Sugar Land serves Sugar Land, New Territory, First Colony, Greatwood and the surrounding areas.
“We know what it’s like to try to care for your own home and help your loved ones age in place, whether they live five minutes away or 500 miles away. We are dealing with that with our own families and are doing our best to coordinate with siblings, but it’s hard to make sure you’re doing the right thing,” Jennifer said. “With TruBlue, you can work with one company to make sure the entire home is cared for in a way that ensures your family members are in a safe, comfortable home while protecting the value of the house itself.”
Scott and Jennifer have been Houston-area residents for the last 15 years. Jennifer, who earned her degree in art history from the University of Michigan-Dearborn, has been in public education for 20 years as a high school social studies teacher and curriculum specialist. Scott has a 30-year career in sales and marketing with a BBA in insurance and risk management from the University of Houston Downtown. They are the proud parents of four kids, two dogs and a cat.
“I was diagnosed with cancer a year ago and, while I’m now cancer free, it changed my perspective. As we paused to think about what we wanted to do next, we knew we wanted to own our own business. We decided to launch TruBlue of Sugar Land because it was an opportunity to build a legacy for our family while providing a much-needed service and giving back to the community,” Jennifer said.
