The Currituck Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors have named Anthony Duncan Velke, owner of DV Cleaning & Home Services, to a North Council seat of the Board of Directors.
Anthony was born in Jamestown, NY. He moved to Currituck with his family in 1987 and attended Currituck County schools. After graduation he moved to Elizabeth City and then returned to New York to study Theater Vocal in 1998. Anthony eventually returned and settled in Camden, NC in 2004 to be closer to family. The move back allowed him to help aid in the care of his grandmother after the passing of his grandfather.
He worked locally at several different companies in the construction industry. He also worked 14 years at businesses that did housekeeping and inspections for property management. Working in housekeeping gave him insight that allowed him to assist his mother in starting her own housekeeping business called, A Touch Above.
In 2011 he met his now husband, Jason Velke, who was also working in the property management, maintenance, and housekeeping fields. After marrying in 2017, Anthony and Jason decided to use their honeymoon money to start their own housekeeping business, DV Cleaning and Home Services. In 2018 they decided to move the business out of their home and found a location in Currituck.
Since moving to Currituck, DV Cleaning & Home Services has grown exponentially. Winning multiple awards in their field, Anthony and Jason decided to start giving back to the community that had supported them. They do this by donating cleans and with financial donations. They are partnered with Cleaning for a Reason, donate to multiple Currituck County Schools booster clubs, Beloved Haven, Toys for Tots, multiple food pantries, and more. Anthony and DV Cleaning are currently working on getting their own charity up and running after the passing of Anthony’s mother (DV Cleaning’s Maintenance Manager) due to colon cancer in May 2022. Anthony’s Mother-in-Law, Tracey, is currently battling cancer.
The new charity called, LynnLee Cleans for Cancer, will donate cleans for locals in their own battle with cancer and help connect clients to local resources to assist in their fight.
