Passionate About The Environment

Passionate About The Environment

 I have always loved the outdoors. I was raised on a farm a couple of hours from Alaska, in Smithers, B.C., Canada.  Being raised on a farm was an amazing way to grow up.   I was a member of the local 4H Club, participating in beef and sheep raising, as well as showmanship, but mostly I loved the public speaking opportunities and demonstrations the club presented me with.

My first job was at the local fish hatchery as a tour guide. The job encouraged me to stay active and healthy. These  are two traits I have instilled in my  family. As a family we enjoy camping, biking, geo caching, hiking and playing games outdoors.  In order for our families to continue enjoying our earth, I strongly believe that ALL of us are called to take care of it. Everyday we have the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of creation and everyday we have the responsibility to protect it.

It wasn’t that long ago when hikers didn’t hesitate to drink out of the lakes, rivers or streams.  Now we all think twice.  What has happened?  Our society has made everything disposable.  The lakes, streams and oceans are polluted.  We need to clean up our act to protect our earth.  David Suzuki was right when he said that “What we do to nature, we do to ourselves.”

We cannot solely blame commercial industry without pointing the finger at residential homes that are carelessly dumping anything and everything down the drain and into our landfills.  Studies have shown that the largest contributors to pollution are actually residential homes not industries.

A particular verse in the Bible that rings true to me is:  I completely believe that we must “First clean the inside of the cup and dish, and then the outside also will be clean” (Matthew 23:26). We are such a small part of this universe with the ability to make a huge impact. Many of us believe that one person cannot change the world, but the truth is, WE CAN. One person at a time, one step at a time. That one persons is you and your first step in in your home.

Gandhi’s call to action is a phrase to live by, “we must strive to be the change that [we] wish to see in the world”.

About Me…

About Me…

Every day I wake up to my dream job; I am so thankful for the incredible opportunities Norwex has provided me with. Being a part of the company has made saying “Choose a job you love, and you will never have to work a day in your life”, 100% true.  I LOVE the teaching and everyday learning Norwex has implemented into my life, as it is my privilege to help others, and make a difference in their lives.  I am honored to be the Leader of The Solution Team of fabulous consultants across North America.  Our team has been awarded as the Top Norwex Team, Nationally and Internationally multiple times since 2007.

My approach to success is simple.

  • Educating and inspiring consumers is a passion. You wouldn’t believe the number of people unaware that they have a choice to live a life without harmful household chemicals.  It is my desire to teach them.
  • There is no better way to improve yourself than to help improve others. I happily mentor, coach and equip my fellow Norwex consultants with the tools they need to achieve their dreams and goals.
  • “Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed people can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.”(M. Meade.) Our team of health conscious consultants wanting to make a difference is ever growing. Join our Team!
  • Norwex has given me a career with a purpose, flexibility so life can have balance, and self-employment with an excellent income.

Norwex National Conference 2010

My Family:

I married my high school sweetheart two years after graduating high school.  Doug and I were blessed with three amazing daughters.  When our oldest daughter was born, she was diagnosed with a rare syndrome, preventing me from returning to my full time career.  I embraced the stay-at-home mom lifestyle and enjoyed the gift of raising our girls.  Finances were tight, as all one income families can attest. Shortly after, I started in the Direct Sales industry in 2001. It has provided our family with flexible hours and income ever since, so there has never been need for hired-care.

In 2013, I saw the influence my career had on my family.  When my team was promoted to the first Norwex Black Jacket nationally, Norwex Head Office asked my husband and daughters to speak at the Corporate Celebration.  It brought tears to my eyes as they shared what Norwex has meant to them over the years.  Our youngest said she loved that her mom was able to attend all her field trips, and how family always came first.  Our middle daughter expressed her gratitude for the part-time job and income she earned, as Norwex is our family business.  She was also thankful that Norwex was positively affecting our environment for her and her family’s lives to come.  As a teenager, she also expressed her appreciation and awe of the Norwex product line, as her skin is free from breakouts and acne.  Our oldest told the room full of celebrators that Norwex taught her how to set goals.  She had seen first hand how goal setting helped her mom to achieve her dreams.  I am proud to share that she was the Valedictorian for her graduating class.  My husband thanked me for giving our family time, and balance, all while running a successful business.  He was grateful I had taught our girls a strong work ethic, determination, dedication, and the heart to help and serve others.  Each of them have blessed me with their words; I will never forget that special evening!

The Solution

The Solution

If  your anything like me, chances are you can’t relax until everyone else’s needs are met and the house is clean. I find it much easier to relax when my home is clean, but keeping it looking freshly cleaned can be very time consuming. Well, I used to feel this way until I discovered NORWEX!

Truth be told, I now actually ENJOY cleaning!  When making the switch to clean with Norwex products you are reducing your cleaning time in half or less. You simply clean your home with water and a cloth, that’s it! My goal is to improve the quality of life for everyone I meet, by simply changing the way they think about cleaning.  I am intentionally increasing their awareness to the dangers of exposure to harmful chemicals.  

Norwex has grown and evolved for me personally over the years.  It started as my solution, to replace chemicals in our home with a healthy alternative.  It also became our financial solution.  Norwex provided a steady income for our family, as we had three girls in four and a half years.  

Educating my customers about Norwex has been rewarding, but there was a hidden surprise for me in this business.  As a passionate user and Norwex educator, it was only natural to invite others to help me spread the word of Norwex.  One person can make a difference in their own circle of influence, but a TEAM can affect the globe.    While helping other consultants launch their businesses, I could of never imagined the reward of joy I would receive. Mentoring their development and watching them succeed has been so gratifying.   To see families achieve financial freedom, their celebration and satisfaction to pay off debt, to take their family on a dream vacation, move to an acreage with horses and surprise their spouse with a huge gift!  The income generated from Norwex, has been the financial solution for many families!

I’ve had a one track mind since 2006, I have been driven to educate society about their options! Cutting their cleaning COSTS by 90% and reducing their cleaning TIME by 75%…  simply by making the switch to NORWEX.  Norwex can be your solution too!

I am delighted that many homes across North America have now discovered Norwex to be their solution!

“Over 150 chemicals found in the average home have been linked to allergies, birth defects, cancer and psychological abnormalities.” Consumer Product Safety Commission

“80 thousand new chemicals have been generated from a decade ago, they were never assessed for human impact.” B. Nicoliasen
