Meet Our Founder

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 in home consultation, call or email and we’ll be there in a jiffy!

Natalia

Sparkler

Hi! My name is Natalia and I joined the Sparkle Plenty team in April of 2022. Cleaning has always been therapeutic for me so I was super excited when I got the call to become a Sparkler! Otherwise, I’ve been all over the place studying Music, Animation, Screenwriting, Veterinary Medicine, and more! I use these skills to care for my kitty (Elby) and my adorable snake (Mischief) while also working on my own creative projects. In my free time, I’m usually drawing, animating, writing scripts, or prepping for my Dungeons and Dragons Campaign! All in all, I’m a big nerd who loves to clean and I look forward to bringing that sparkle back to your home.

Boo & Earl

Resident Office Snugglers

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!

Finn

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! 

Macie

Distraction Officer

Howdie! I am the newest member of the Sparkle Plenty animal crew. When I came to Sparkle Plenty I was blind and scared. Lynn and her family took me in as a foster and fell head over heels for me. They loved me so much they helped me get my eyesight back!! I love running around outside and seeing all.the.things! I’m still not sure about all these cats around here, but I love my people so much, I’ll tolerate those cats!

Mable & Lily

Distraction Officers

Hi! We are the official pugs of Sparkle Plenty Cleaners! When it’s nice outside we like to go with our mom Lynn and find new clients. We are always there for her and make sure she is never alone! 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! 

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.
