Meet Our Owner And Chief Sparkle Officer

Lynn Thoele

Homemade cookies will always taste better than store bought. A warm puppy will always melt your heart. Coming home to a clean house that smells fantastic will always put a smile on your face and a spring in your step!

I feel like the luckiest person in the world! After years of working in sales & marketing, I did something I knew nothing about and opened up a cleaning service! One thing I did know is that I wanted to make a difference and have a business where I could be of service to other people. After some trial and error, I got it figured out and I have a fantastic team behind me running everything like a fine Swiss watch! Our work won’t cure cancer or bring about world peace but we perform a vital service for people who don’t have the time, the desire or sometimes the ability to do it themselves. 

My Sparklers are hard-working, fun-loving people of integrity who will treat your home with care and respect. No Debbie downers here…my Sparklers are upbeat & positive because they love what they do. We aren’t a discount service because my cleaners work hard and deserve to be paid well. But don’t worry, we won’t break the bank, either!

Last but not least, we are fully licensed, bonded & insured. My high-quality Sparklers go through an extensive hiring process including comprehensive criminal background checks & they must agree to random drug testing.

If you’d like a free, no-obligation phone consultation to get pricing, call or email and we’ll set that up in a jiffy!

Chelsea - Sparkler & Office Manager
Office Manager


I joined the Sparkle team in November 2019 after almost 10 years of managing Veterinary clinics. I have two children; Addison (9) and Garrison (7). I share my house with my children, my husband Adam, our Boxer/Border Collie mix Zoey, our English Springer Spaniel Lincoln and our tabby cat Pete. In my spare time, I love to run and am looking to sign up for another marathon soon.  I also love to read, hang out with friends, and clean! I joined this team because I remember how happy I felt when I would come home to a clean house! It has been a pleasure getting to know you all over the years and I can't wait to keep building relationships with all of you.

Sarah - Field Manager
Field Manager


Hello there! My name is Sarah, or Captain Sailer to some, and I joined the Sparkle team in 2020, after my husband (Dillon) and I relocated from North Dakota during the height of the pandemic in search of a place we felt like we belonged. Boy, did we find that not only in the Twin Cities metro, but also in our new careers. I started my journey with the Sparkle team as a sparkler and trainer! After a small hiatus early this year, I am back in action and ready to set sail on the SS Sparkle Plenty in my new role!

We purchased our first home in Minneapolis proper last summer and share our space with our best friend (Joe) and two cat children, Marley (6) and Boris (4).

I have been spending most of my days working on interior decorating projects and gardening, but when I have free moments, I love to read anything and everything, go to the gym, work on art projects, create new vegan recipes, go thrifting and estate saling, attend concerts, discover new restaurants and breweries, traveling and attending conventions like Comic Con, and spend time with the people I love... People are my passion!

I am so excited to Sparkle for and connect with all of you!

We love to find new things to do around the city or just hang out at home watching Disney movies! In my free time, I love to cook new recipes, read anything fantasy or Sci-fi related, or go to the gym and practice my boxing! I love being a sparkler. Making a positive change in someone’s day brightens mine even more!! Lynn and Chelsea are absolutely amazing and I am so excited to be a part of the team!

Alesha – Sparkler


Hi!  My name is Alesha and I joined the Sparkle Plenty Team in December of 2022.  (Best Christmas Gift Ever!)  I was born and raised in Hastings, MN.  I moved to California for 4 years where I was a dog groomer but found my way back home to pursue new adventures.  I’ve also done bartending and delivery driving but my true skill and passion is cleaning.  I don’t have many hobbies but most of my free time is spent with friends and family and my 5-year-old husky, Lunatic.  All in all, I’m so excited to be a part of such an amazing team and help people bring that sparkle back into their homes!

I'm Salena, a live music enthusiast who finds inspiration in the rhythm and melodies. When I'm not enjoying live shows, I express myself through painting and drawing, connecting with others through art. Creativity fuels my passion, and I continue to grow on this artistic journey



Hi there!
My name is Lorie. I was born and raised in Conway SC where I lived for 29 years before moving to MN. I have 2 beautiful daughters ages 2 and 4. I’m a lover of nature, art and animals. Cleaning is my therapy and helping others is my passion.


My name is Gena and I’ve lived in Oakdale for the last 10+ years! I have the most wonderful son who is 8! What a joy it is being his mama! In my free time I love to read and paint! I also love to hike, in search of a beautiful place to set up a hammock to read and listen to the sounds of nature! I’ve been a server/bartender for the last 10+ years, and I absolutely love the career change I’ve made becoming a sparkler! I’m very much a people person who loves to make people happy, and of course I love to clean; and now I get a two in one 😇 This company is a breath of fresh air, and I’m so glad to be apart of the sparkling team !



Hey there, my name is Heather. I grew up and currently live in Woodbury, Minnesota with my two boys, Jaedyn (13) and Joey (5). I joined the Sparkle Squad in January 2024 while I attend school to get my Bachelor of Science in Nursing. I am a plant enthusiast and am proud to say I have about 50 different varieties in my bedroom alone. I love coffee, music, spontaneous road trips and trying new restaurants. I have always had a passion helping others, and cleaning is therapeutic, so I would say this job is absolutely perfect for me! I look forward to help make your home sparkle!



Hi there …my name is Rita! When the company who bought the property management company I worked for, decided to eliminate my Sr Admin position, I was far more relieved than stressed. I had been needing a change, and now I was forced to reassess and act on that.
I felt a tremendous need for more autonomy, the need to be free of tethers, and any type of corporate environment. I am happiest when I am physically and creatively busy, thrive on challenge …always known for an uncanny ability to create sense and order out of chaos …and most passionate, about serving my fellow man. 
My background includes …and my “retirement” years will include, FT ministry of some kind …but until then, housecleaning is truly a ministry all its own. Creating fresh, clean spaces for busy people, along with the personal connections, provides me an opportunity to make a very real and vital difference in the lives of my clients (and their pets!), and I find deeply satisfying. Actually …if you think about it …we are really in the business of “changing the atmosphere” in very positive ways!
Sparkle Plenty owner Lynn, and the management team, work seamlessly with the Sparkle “family”…and the spirit of excellence at every level is both what led me to them …and will serve only to continue to cause us to flourish individually …as well as, as a Team …so happy to be here!

Hello, my name is Wendy, I am so happy to be returning to the Sparkle Plenty Team!
I started my Sparkle career before the Pandemic, I had been with the team for two and a half years when March of 2020 changed everything. During lockdown I changed gears to become my grandsons full time daycare provider, he was 14months old at the time, he is now almost 5 1/2! I was so blessed to be able to spend so much precious time with him during the chaos of Covid!
I have lived in Woodbury for the last 29 years, have been married to my husband, David for 36 years, we have successfully raised 4 incredibly wonderful children, and have two grandchildren Riley (5) and Lily (2). Two of our girls, Rachel, (Riley’s mom) and Taylor, our youngest live here in Woodbury. Our daughter , Stephanie, her husband, Nick and our granddaughter live in Utah. Our son, Dustin lives in Colorado. We are definitely still a close family and get together often, we do love to travel and do so as often as we can! Our favorite travel destination besides each other’s homes is Walt Disney World!
Things I enjoy in my free time are spending time with family and friends and running! The whole family enjoys running, (we are the family that will sign up for a 5K on thanksgiving morning!) I have now completed things I never ever thought I could do, I’ve completed 5 full marathons, and so many other distances as well and I hope to run until I’m 100! Nothing is Impossible and I run so I don’t unravel.
I’m very excited to be getting back to helping our clients homes Sparkle and being part of a Team that works hard and truly believes we are making a difference in the lives of each and every one of our clients!

Lead Distraction Officer


Hi! My name is Finn, I am a fierce hunter, except my human doesn’t like me catching birds and squirrels so she dresses me in a silly outfit, but I show her! I make sure to knock everything off her desk and lay on the keyboard so she can’t get any work done!

We love all the Sparklers and get lots of attention when they stop by. We model for the Sparkle Plenty Instagram and Facebook page, so make sure to follow us on social media!

Hello! We are Earl and Boo! We love to hang out in the office and try not to cause as much trouble as Finn, but sometimes we just can’t help ourselves and take over a desk to get the humans to pay attention to us!

Head Cat In Charge – Pumpkin
Head Cat In Charge


Hello, my name is Pumpkin. I make sure to keep all the cats and pugs in line around here. I may be the smallest, but I am in charge! I love to lie in my bed on the file cabinet or under a warm lamp. I let my humans work, but whenever they take a break I am always up for some snuggles.

Pumpkin crossed the rainbow bridge in 2021. She will forever be Head Cat in Charge and is missed everyday.
