As a writer, I’ve been incredibly fortunate to have had most of my writing experiences in the fields that I am equally passionate about – home and commercial cleaning (I love learning and sharing new, innovative tips and guides on the same); lifestyle blogging; home décor ideas; interior designing; health and fitness articles; and, of course, all things dogs! Writing for Simply Maid has had a positive impact on both, my professional and personal life. It’s truly helped me to learn and grow as a writer, a homemaker, and a work-from-home dog parent! Growing up, I was a homeschooled kid that faithfully did all my chores and spent my evenings playing sports outdoors with the neighbourhood kids. Although my childhood was vastly different from that of my friends, looking back, I wouldn’t change a thing. Spending as much time as I have at home for most of my life has taught me everything I need to know about running a home, just by watching (and helping) my parents run theirs. That’s pretty much where my passion for keeping a clean and tidy home stemmed from! I wouldn’t call myself an obsessive cleaner, but I WILL politely ask you to use a coaster!
