Wendy

Wendy Mackewn

Field Manager

With a career in the service industry spanning more than thirty years and a manager for the majority of those years, Wendy Mackewn brings substantial expertise to The Cleaning Ladies team. Wendy is a caring leader who has the remarkable ability to be calm under pressure and ease concerns, no matter the situation.

True to form, she works well with clients and staff and treat’s them with kindness and compassion. Despite her empathetic nature, she is very goal-oriented, a fast learner, and is always up for new challenges.

When she is not working with The Cleaning Ladies team, Wendy likes to unwind by painting, crafting, or gardening, spending time at her cottage, or by traveling to warm destinations like the Caribbean. She also spends a lot of time with her family.

Married for more than thirty years and mom to two beautiful children, as well as seven grandchildren, she lives a full life, but family is important to her, and she wouldn’t have it any other way.

Emma Fitzsimmons

Field Manager

Organized and efficient, Emma Fitzsimmons makes an excellent addition to The Cleaning Ladies team.

Though Emma spent most of her career in childcare, working her way up to Assistant Supervisor and then managing her home daycare, she is stepping back from her life in Early Childhood Education to make clients’ homes sparkle and shine. Working with children doesn’t come without challenges, but Emma managed them with ease.

Now, as Field Manager, she brings those same skills to the table while assisting and managing the cleaning team. It is important to her that every job is done well, and she takes great pride in her work, leaving no corner untouched.

Married and with two children, five and eight-year-old boys and a basset hound/pug mix named Moose, Emma loves to spend time with her family, camping and going on adventures.

Lauren Kahn

Field Manager

Lauren Khan’s superpower is helping people of all ages thrive. As a personal support worker for more than 15 years, she has spent a lot of time taking care of clients and their homes. She also worked as an Early Childhood Assistant in a daycare for one year, where daily cleaning was a requirement of her position.

Besides being a wonderful and caring person, her background and experience make her an excellent asset to The Cleaning Ladies team. What Khan loves the most is taking a dirty home and making it sparkle. It is what gets her out of bed in the morning.

She also revels in the satisfaction her clients get after coming home to a clean house. Knowing they can relax and spend time on other more important things. She believes cleaning is and has always been a way to keep everyone safe and happy.

When she isn’t working, she loves to cook, camp, play games with her husband and three kids, visit and learn about small towns and museums, watch horror movies, bake and create just about anything. Though she has lots of interests, she is happiest when sharing an experience with the people she loves the most.
