James White Pressure Washing

About Me

Getting Started

After working 10 months in retail, I left my job to strive for something more fulfilling and responsible. I read a number of entrepreneurial books, found an old power washer in my garage, and painted some yard signs. With help from my close friend Kasey Kolke, I opened James White Pressure Washing on July 1, 2021.

Running the Business

Over the past two summers, I've been fortunate enough to serve over 300 clients. My main focus is on keeping the business lean and considerate. My clients are often neighbors — helping the community means a lot to me.

Camp Soar

Camp SOAR is a sleepaway summer camp for special-needs individuals in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin. I'm a counselor there for two weeks every summer — by far my favorite part of every year. After loving my first summer there, I decided to get more involved in the special-needs community. Now I serve on the exec board of Special Olympics at UA.

UA Fellows

I'm a part of the University Fellows Experience at UA — a scholar-leadership program housed in the Honors College. Selection to this program is considered the highest honor for freshmen at Alabama. Some of my closest friends are Fellows — I'm excited to spend time with them in Alabama's Black Belt, where we'll be completing service projects for the city of Marion in May 2023.

A Cool Story

In September 2021, I was selected for a community service award by Buddy's Helpers and TIDL Sports. As a result, I was given the chance to throw out the ceremonial first pitch with MMA star Conor McGregor. At the time, Conor was the highest paid athlete in the world. Despite being a Sox fan, it was really cool to hang out with him at Wrigley for the night. Definitely my coolest (and most bizarre) story.


I love spending time with my friends — I'm fortune enough to go to the University of Alabama with three of my closest ones (all from Orland, as well). I've also become a big fan of reading — mostly nonfiction. I used to play basketball in high school, so watching the Tide play this season was particularly exciting.
