I have been married for 38 years and have two adult children, a wonderful son-in-law and two grandchildren. We have lived in Milton for 36 years and love it here!
I worked for Dupont Canada as a cost accountant for their Chemicals & Pigments and Hydrogen Peroxide division. For me, the best part was learning about the chemicals and why they do what they do. Who knew I was a chemical geek!
After 6 years at Dupont Canada, an opportunity was presented to us to introduce the Town of Milton to Subways Sandwich franchises in 1990. We opened 5 stores in 20 years. This gave me my taste of entrepreneurship, never to look back!
In 2008, we had an armed robbery in our 24 hr store and luckily no one was hurt, and we decided to sell them and get out of the fast-food business.
In 2010, I was introduced to Fresh Start Odour Treatment and Chlorine Dioxide by a business associate in Canada and worked very successfully with the car industry removing ALL odours in vehicles, every time! The challenges were many and my confidence soared with every treatment and success.
In 2011, I was thrilled to meet the manufacturer and inventor of the products I was using, Todd Schroeter from Clo2 Delivery Systems and my life has never been the same. He has taken me under his wing and educated me on every aspect of Chlorine Dioxide and guided me through many treatments in the last 9 years allowing me to earn the respect in Canada as the go-to person for many companies.
In 2016, I liked the company so much, I bought it! Fresh Start Odour Treatment was now mine.
In 2020 we rebranded it to Fresh Start® Environments because Chlorine Dioxide is so much more than an odour removal product… and here we are today. I am one happy chemical geek saving Canada one molecule at a time!
