Dan Woodley

I am from Atlanta, Georgia and joined Above and Beyond Property Improvement in 2017, with the goals of increasing revenue, transforming the business to a full-Fledged remodeling business with kitchen and baths as a primary product line.

My background is in the Building Business having built hundreds of homes and townhomes, and over one million square feet of commercial, office and residential condominiums as well as developed a multitude of subdivisions. As Director Projects and Operations, I consult with our client, develop a scope of work, budget and cost, direct the field personnel in the execution of the projects and assure the clients satisfaction.

John "Scottish" Smyth

Some people say I am a strong strategic entrepreneurial leader focused on delivering results by leading by example.

I say I am an inspirational person who wears his heart on his sleeve and I am always looking to find a better way. I don`t accept "we cant"

I believe that creating the right culture within a business is paramount to success, without great employees, you really have nothing.

After co-owning a successful solution-focused business for many years I am now based in Bradenton, Florida building another business which has huge potential.

I have the experience, knowledge, energy, passion and belief that rubs off on others to help achieve goals, objectives, and ambitions.

I am a.....

- Scottish Bagpipe Player

- Soccer Lover

- Husband to Sharon. Dad to Ellie.

- Owner of Haggis the dog.

Sharon Smyth

I am Sharon, the Scottish Lassie in the office, who is also John's wife.

I joined the team in 2014 and my role is to keep the customers and the team members happy, whilst making the day to day operations run smoothly.

I have 20 years experience of practicing Podiatry within the UK, and was the Clinical Lead for the Nail Surgery department.

I am the practical joker of the office, and the "Mom" of the Above & Beyond family.

Elizabeth Holdsworth

I was raised in the Midwest cheering for Kansas State University and the Kansas City Chiefs. While I don't miss the winters of Kansas I do miss the rolling plains and visiting my cousins during harvest.

My husband and I started a ServiceMaster with a partner in 2008 in a Southwest Kansas town called Dodge City, where I was the account manager. We started in a little garage, behind the 3 bedroom 1 bath house that both of our families lived in.

Within a year we expanded to 3 locations and were named ServiceMasters 2009 Rookie of the Year in three categories; Commercial, Residential, and Overall Sales.

I have handled accounts for 6 different companies, including one of my own. I enjoy the process with each one as we aim for more sales, higher goals, and better processes.

While I enjoy working hard I really enjoy playing hard. I always love a good adrenaline rush. A couple years ago I was able to finally check off something I have wanted to do since I was 18. SKYDIVING! It was quite a rush.
