Our Story



Director of Operations

Tabbytha is the master of our domain.  She is a tenacious, pro-active, excellent communicator. She is the one who makes sure all parties involved (clients, Realtors, and Inspectors) understand the what/when/where of working with us. She is also a licensed Iowa Radon Measurement Specialist and NACHI Certified Professional Home Inspector, and continues to serve our clients in those roles as well.

When Tabbytha joined our team in early 2019, she had been working as a licensed Realtor assistant/transaction coordinator in the quad cities. She came on board initially in a temporary role during a transition period for our team, scheduling inspections. Since then, she has aggressively sought opportunity and achieved the professional goals she set for herself. Tabbytha trained both on the job and at the NACHI House of Horrors to become a successful Certified Professional Home Inspector. She is also a licensed Iowa Radon Measurement Specialist.

In her free time, Tabbytha is an outspoken advocate for Domestic Violence awareness and has a mild addiction to social media (check out our Vigilant fb page). Tabbytha and her two kids live in North Liberty.



Certified Professional Inspector

We first tried to hire Josh 3 1/2 years before he came on board, in May of 2016 when Roy inspected his home (which looks a LOT different now thanks to a lot of elbow grease).

Josh has an extensive background in the trades and is a pleasure to be around. Prior to joining our team, Josh was in a leadership role in the maintenance department for a local airport, and has worked as a handyman, an auto mechanic, and in commercial HVAC. He's a cheerful soul, and it's infectious.

In his spare time, Josh enjoys working on/ restoring antique Volkswagens! Josh lives in Iowa City with his wife Audrey, 2 kids, and various project vehicles.



Certified Professional Inspector

Kielan has an extensive background in construction, getting his start in skilled trades working alongside his dad through highschool in the family's remodeling and renovation company in the Omaha Metro.

In college, Kielan worked closely with the Habitat for Humanity program in Sioux City to call awareness to slum living conditions, homelessness, and community outreach and development within residential housing. Kielan has a heart for making sure people have a safe place to live.

After college, Kielan exceled in management roles in the restaurant industry, but ultimately felt drawn back to building and construction, this time on the commercial side.

Home Inspection was the natural next-step in Kielan's career given his personable demeanor, great communication skills, and construction knowledge. Kielan was excited to join the Vigilant team when we acquired the home inspection company he was previously employed by, and we're blessed to have him on the team!

Kielan lives in Des Moines with his wife Nancy and their two kids.
