Alice Pries, President of Sunshine Door Specialists, has been recognized as a Marquis Emerging Leader for their contributions and achievements in the field business management.
For Ms. Pries, the passion for her work was instilled to her more than two decades ago, when her father founded the company. Ever since she was a teenager, she has been involved with the company. In 2012, Ms. Pries was working in private banking while having her first child and felt incomplete with the work she was doing. Her father offered her a position with the company that allowed her to work from home managing the books and accounting. When her father became ill with Alzheimer’s disease in 2019, Ms. Pries was invited to step forward within the company and became the president. In addition, it was transferred in her name. Since then, she has worked hard to continue living out her father’s dream of being the top specialist in Miami and surrounding areas for sliding glass door repairs.
In addition to earning a Bachelor of Arts in International Relations, Florida International University in 2007, Ms. Pries carries with her the drive of being an immigrant. Along with her family, she immigrated to the United States from Brazil. She studied hard to learn English, Spanish and French, and earned a scholarship to FIU where she majored in international relations. She was inspired by her father who hustled cleaning patios until he opened the family business.
Prior to working with and eventually becoming the president of Sunshine Cleaning Specialists, Ms. Pries worked as a Client Account Assistant at Itau Private Bank from 2010 to 2012 and as an Operations Assistant at Kawa Capital Management from 2008 to 2010. In her spare time, she enjoys homeschooling her children, traveling, speaking different languages (fluent in English, Portuguese, and Spanish), kayaking, horseback riding, spending time in nature and learning Martial Arts. Ms. Pries endeavors to continue building the family business and providing high-quality sliding glass door repair services to her clients.
