Our Owner

MarloIn 1986, Bunny McKelvey, a native of Columbia, SC, and a former banker, established Deserved Comfort. After realizing the demand for this type of service, and after extensive market research, Bunny hired several employees, engaged them in a rigorous training program, and began her quest to provide the highest quality cleaning service available, at reasonable rates.

In 1987, while attending the University of South Carolina, Marlo McKelvey Kanipe, Bunny’s daughter, joined the company. Although Bunny has retired, Marlo continues to own and manage the daily operations of Deserved Comfort and still emphasizes quality service, client satisfaction, and reasonable rates. She resides in Cayce with her husband, Ralph is a loyal Gamecock fan, and enjoys spending her spare time with her family and friends.



In early 2017, Michelle Carnahan joined the Deserved Comfort staff as Assistant Manager.  Michelle, a native of Ft. Worth, Texas, is an Air Force Veteran where she was deployed to Qatar, in 2012, and served as an Emergency Action Controller in the Command Post.  Michelle is very skilled with computers, having built her own, and is going to school for programming.  She has had experience in various jobs such as working as an Admin for FEMA, as well as a worker in a private duty nursing home, and a substitute teacher.

Michelle’s interests include any creative hobby, but mostly gaming and programming (she freelances as a web designer in her free time).  She currently resides in Columbia with her husband, Andrew, and their 3 furry babies.  She is quality oriented, positive and friendly, and looks forward to helping Deserved Comfort continue in the efforts of providing high-quality standards and excellent customer service.
