Always Provide the Highest Level of Service

The very nature of disaster means that the victim is in a vulnerable spot and their life has been disrupted. That’s why we created Apex Disaster Management – to be the kind of company you can trust when disaster strikes. It’s a simple idea, but one that defines us and guides us as a company each and every day.

Do the job right – no matter what.

We provide an estimate that is 100% honest and do the job the correct way each and every time. We don't cut corners, and we keep you apprised of your job status so you know what to expect and when your life will be restored to normal.

Always take care of the customer.

We say this a lot – while we work with the insurance company, we work for you. This means that your needs are at the center of the work we do, and the service we provide, at all times. Whether it is a home or commercial building, we will take care of you.

Our Executive Team

At Apex Disaster Management, we don't just hire anyone. We seek out people with deep expertise in repairing and remediating the damage caused by fire, water and mold. But we also look for people who have a service mind-set, care about doing a great job and want to be part of a growing enterprise.

Patricia (Trish) Wright

Mitigation Estimator

Trish Wright has carved a unique path. Before breaking barriers in the male-dominated field of disaster management, Trish worked as a correctional officer and a researcher at the medicinal herb garden at Tuskegee University. Trish is proud to be one of the few women in the disaster management industry, having started as a technician and quickly ascending to her current role as a Mitigation Estimator. Her passion for the industry and determination to succeed have made her an invaluable asset to the Apex Disaster Management team.

One of Trish’s notable achievements includes a remarkable walk from Tuskegee, Alabama, to Washington, D.C., to raise awareness about Agnihotra. This ancient Vedic practice is scientifically proven to purify the atmosphere, soil, and water sources while fostering peace and prosperity. She developed this interest after her work with the Tuskegee Institute, where she researched natural remedies to alleviate high blood pressure, mouth pain, joint pain, and migraines.

Originally from Ahoskie, North Carolina, Trish now calls Duluth home. Outside her professional life, she is an avid basketball player and nature enthusiast. Trish is also a devoted churchgoer, attending services every Sunday with her wife, Olivia, and their daughter, Raelyn.
