Cinderella Bermudez, Founder and Owner
Like my namesake, I’ve always believed in working hard and dreaming big. As an enterprising youngster, I earned a reputation for productivity by mowing and tidying yards in my West Texas neighborhood. At 15, I opened a nacho stand at a town celebration and made over $1000 in a single day. Driven by entrepreneurial instincts, I enrolled in the University of Texas, earning a degree in business. After college, I spent two rewarding and intense years serving in the Peace Corps, teaching women in the Costa Rican campo to be self-sustaining. The experience inspired a lifelong dedication to community service.
Eager to rejoin the workforce, I took a job with a national hotel chain and moved to Washington, D.C., working my way up to head of housekeeping. After many years of long hours and limited rewards, I felt the pull to be back in charge of my own destiny. I founded Cinderella Services, now known as Maid to Clean, in 1996. In the last 20 years, Maid to Clean has grown to be the premier cleaning company in Alexandria and Arlington, assisting hundreds of clients and employing more than 40 staff members.
Melissa Gouffray, Business Manager
I joined Maid to Clean in September 2016 after 10 years managing a wellness business in Del Ray. At Maid to Clean, I am truly at home, surrounded by a large group of hardworking and dedicated women. My career path has always revolved around working directly with clients, providing a great product or service, and building lasting relationships.
I grew up in a large family in Kansas City. After graduating from the University of Kansas with a B.A. in Spanish literature, language, and culture, I married a Colombian with whom I have two wonderful children. We relocated to the East Coast, first to Charlotte, NC, and then to Alexandria in 1996. We’re surrounded by our Colombian family and enjoy trips to Costa Rica, Mexico, and Colombia. We’re also fortunate to have two of my siblings on the East Coast. When I’m not working, I love spending time with family, sailing on the Potomac or Chesapeake Bay, and playing Irish fiddle with a local Del Ray band. I relish a good laugh, appreciate the unpredictable, and love facing new challenges.
Pepita and Chocolatte, Our Mascots
As the mascots of a busy company, we work hard welcoming new clients, greeting familiar friends, entertaining staff members, and fetching important items. We’re also dedicated to helping our four-legged friends, raising donations and awareness for the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary and the Alexandria Humane Society. Donations made to the Tennessee Elephant Sanctuary will be matched by Maid to Clean. (Individual donations to a maximum of $500, with a goal of $10,000.) Ask our human co-workers to learn more.
