Tabitha Mueller is the site manager at Elite Car Wash in Cape Girardeau, Missouri. She has four beautiful children with her husband, Arron: Ava 9, Keagon 6, Amsley 4, and Kinlee 1. She and her family live on a farm outside of Cape Girardeau. They love animals, nature, and going on adventures, but most importantly, give all their praise to God. She entered into this line of work to bring much needed change to the industry. “When people think of car wash, they think of cold-shouldered individuals who may or may not even acknowledge the fact that you are there.” She married into the power washing business and now finds herself leading a top of the line car wash. “Being a clean freak has it’s perks. I feel it’s extremely important to love what you do. My goal is to develop a comfortable rapport with every customer that comes through the car wash. It’s important to listen to the customer’s preferences and feedback so we can determine what product and services to offer. At Elite we strive on having a collaborative work environment. Not only do we have teamwork and team-building, we put extra time into our employees to make sure they thrive in our environment and naturally feel a part of something bigger than themselves. We want to prepare our young adults for their futures.

I was extremely blessed and excited to be a part of empowering women in the car was industry. Empowering women to participate fully in economic life across all sectors is essential to building a stronger economy and improving the quality of life for women, families, and their communities.

So my advice to women in car wash is to love what you do, trust yourself, and focus on who you are and who you want to become. Always hold yourself with grace, embrace imperfect moments, and chase your dreams. Don’t ever limit yourself, and be open to all possibilities! Amelia Earnhart said, ‘Women, like men, should try to do the impossible. And when they fail, their failures should be a challenge to others.”
