Who Exactly is Mina Starsiak? 

Mina Starsiak, whose full name is actually Mina Nicole Starsiak, was born on the 26th day of November 1987 in Indianapolis, the United States of America. Apparently, the home renovator is an American by nationality and belongs to white American ethnicity.

According to our sources, the television show host completed her high school education from one of the local schools in her Indiana neighborhood before enrolling to study business and sociology at the University of Indiana. When she eventually graduated from university, she was quite unsure about what to do with her life so she got a job as a waitress just to pay the bills.

After some time, Mina saved up some money and then decided to buy a house for $37,500. The building was dilapidated so she enlisted the help of her mother, Karen Laine to fix the house. The two women worked on the house and fixed it from bottom to top. By the time they were done, Mina had developed the passion to become a home-renovator full time because she just enjoyed tearing things down and building them back into a better shape. This was how she got into the home renovation business.

After doing such a good job renovating the house, Mina Starsiak and her mother Karen Laine decided to start a home renovation company which they called Two Chicks And A Hammer. To aid the growth of her business which is jointly run by her mother, Starsiak joined Twitter in 2015 where she advertised what they did. She gained patronage as well as clients who came asking for their services to fix their respective homes. In addition to Twitter, Mina also joined other social media platforms to reach a newer audience and it was in the course of this she subscribed membership to Facebook.

The two women worked together for about seven years, renovating about 20 homes before something interesting happened; they got contacted by HGTV, an American pay television channel that offered to feature them on a show.

According to sources, she got a phone call from casting director of HGTV’s new reno show Good Bones after he discovered her works through her Facebook profile. He made an offer to her to begin a television show about her home renovation work which she accepted. The show debuted on March 22, 2016, and is still on air today. She now co-hosts the show which has over 15 million viewers worldwide with her mother.

On the show, the mother and daughter duo travels across the United States to find houses that are in dire need of maintenance or renovation in some cases and give it a total makeover. In some cases, they buy off a house, totally break it down and put up a befitting home in place of it on the same spot it once stood.

The show has been hugely successful in its first season, gaining a mammoth fan base. On June 7, 2019, the series was renewed for a fifth season that will premiere in 2020.

What Do We Know About Her Family?

Mina Starsiak has a very lovely family. From the foregoing, it is apparent that her mother, Karen is very fond of her and is very supportive of her work. So, who are the other family members? Let’s take a look at their profiles.

The family tree of Mina Starsiak is quite large and a bit complex. Starsiak’s father is Casey Starsiak. He was first married to Karen Laine and they had three children together before they divorced. After the divorce, Starsiak’s mother got married to another man named Randy with whom she had a daughter named Kelsy. This happens to be her fourth child.

Mina’s father on his own part also got remarried to another woman named Cheryl who bore him two children; Jess and Tad, making it five children for him from his two marriages. Cheryl died and Tad had a fallout with his father and this resulted in his moving in with Mina Starsiak to work with her on their job sites.

Mina Starsiak’s mum, Karen later divorced her second husband Randy as she got married to another man named Mick. This became her third marriage which didn’t last as she also got married to another man named Roger.

The good thing with the family is that all the children from different mothers and fathers are cool with each other.
