Meet A Mom: Allison McCarthy with Zoom Drain | Katy Moms

Meet Allison McCarthy
Zoom Drain

Allison McCarthy is the mama behind Zoom Drain in Katy, Texas, which we recently had the pleasure of working with on a stubborn drain in our side yard! This team was fast, efficient, knowledgeable, and so kind! Their technology was so impressive and we got our drain draining again!

We love learning about mama owned businesses here in Katy and wanted to share this great local business with all of you, as well as highlight Allison, who along with her husband, are building this business!

Allison, originally from Louisiana, was a certified court reporter in Texas before becoming a business owner! Her entrepreneurial spirit is evident from her successful ten-year stint managing her stenography business, where she excelled in transcribing depositions and captioning in academic settings.

Allison is also mama to three young children and her and her husband Patrick have called Katy home since 2017.

Allison says she was drawn to the sewer and drain business, recognizing the perpetual demand for such essential services. The vision for Zoom Drain is centered around exceptional customer service. They aspire to make every interaction with their technicians a positive experience, emphasizing politeness and understanding.

We got to chat with Allison about all things motherhood, her favorite things about Katy, and of course more about her growing business! Check out our full interview below!

Prioritizing self-care and carving out time for yourself, whether it’s taking a long bath, taking a nap or going for a walk. A well-rested and rejuvenated mom is better equipped to handle the demands of parenting.
