Marketing Specialist + Cleaning Industry Expert
I have 15 years of experience as a professional PR strategist, marketing + communications specialist — and I built my own multi-million dollar, award-winning cleaning business doing my own marketing, web design and branding - and I can show you how to do it too!
As a regular contributor to ARCSI/ISSA, Jobber and Zenmaid events, I have also provided consulting to some of the biggest names in the cleaning industry, including social media sensation Sarah from Go Clean Co.
My insights, tips, lessons and opinions have been featured in glossy magazines, national newspapers, business podcasts and TV appearances. I also teach branding web design, social media marketing, blogging and email marketing classes to other entrepreneurs both as a consultant and as a business school instructor.
I work with people who want their own dazzlingly successful, upscale luxury cleaning business, by living “The Glisten Life”. Through my training programs, I am here to show you how to: I have 15+ years of experience as a professional PR strategist, marketing + communications specialist — and I’ve built my own multi-million dollar, award-winning cleaning business doing my own marketing, web design and branding.
When I'm not working, you can find me juggling work with our new baby, born on Christmas Eve 2020. I also divide my time between San Diego and the Toronto area, after living most of my life in Edmonton, Alberta. I love swimming (former synchro swimmer), reading British novels, and cuddling my Yorkies, Winnie and Chester.
I currently offer one-on-one consulting as well as small group consulting. You can also join my Facebook group for cleaning biz owners.
