HandyMadam: The Handyman, but Not a Man!
No need to worry about dirty work boots or plumber crack. No need to worry about being treated like an idiot and being taken advantage of. I founded HandyMadam with the goal of providing a safe option in a male-dominated industry. I know how it feels to walk into a hardware store and be treated like you don't know what you're looking for. I know how it feels to worry about the safety of yourself or a loved one. I know you want quality work from someone you can trust. If you need things taken care of in your home or business that are beyond your expertise, I know it's because you're busy changing the world in your own way, and this is mine. I aim to empower women and give clients the experience they deserve. I proudly serve LGBTQIA individuals.
HandyMadam services homes and businesses in Los Angeles and was founded by Alessandor Earnest, artist and all-around handy person. As a teenager, Aless assisted her mother (another handy woman!) with fixing up old houses to be sold. She graduated with a BFA in Sculpture and moved to LA to find a career in which she could use her skills. Her prior experience working as a gallery assistant/preparator, a studio assistant, and teaching art students woodworking and welding methods as shop master at her university has helped turn her into the handy person she is today.
