My Story

Survivor. Business Owner. Author. Wife & Mom.

Business Owner

I am the proud owner and founder of Maid in America, a professional cleaning service providing top of the line non-toxic cleaning solutions to homes and businesses for over 20 years.  My tag lines, “We Don’t Cut Corners, We Clean Them” while “Adding Sparkle and Shine with Your Health in Mind” is the driving force of my business operating principles.  To enhance the healthier cleaning environment I bring two other direct sales companies to the table, Nikken Wellness Home & doTerra Essential Oils, both of which compliment my professional cleaning services.  I strongly believe in empowering others to make healthier choices for themselves and their environment through cleaner living.  

My Story and My Hero

In 2015 I was diagnosed with a non-invasive breast cancer and am thankful to be a continuing survivor.  My biggest hero is my nephew, Brody Bates, who at 8 years of age left this earth for heaven after losing his battle to brain cancer.  It is with great pleasure that I am able to participate with various events sponsored by the Georgia Chapter Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation to honor the memory of my sweet angel, Brody.  Having experienced firsthand the effects emotionally, spiritually, and physically that cancer has on an individual and their family, I have been inspired to partner with a non-profit organization called “Cleaning for a Reason”.  Through this partnership Maid in America is able to provide free services to women going through cancer treatment.  


Another partnership within the business community is with our Realtors.  We provide a unique business partnership that benefits not only us, but the Realtor, by enhancing their spectrum of services to the buyer/seller client.  This partnership extends to local builders as well in the development of new residential communities.


Over the years as a business entrepreneur I have developed local business connections within my community.  I have served in several capacities and am currently an active member of the Acworth Business Association, Xperience Connections Women’s Networking Organization, and my own women’s networking social group.  I am also an active member of my church, with my amazing husband, Robert.

My Family

My precious daughter, Ashley DeClue, has recently boarded to assist in making a greater impact as a family owned and operated business.  Our mother-daughter partnership strengthens my goals of providing tighter customer relationships as well as freeing up more time to give back to the community.   In everything, I am giving thanks and praise to God the Father who is the giver of all great things.  

Prayer for You….

I leave you with the “biggest little prayer” in the bible, The Prayer of Jabez from I Chronicles 4:10, “Oh that You would bless me Lord and enlarge my territory, that Your hand would be with me, and that you would keep me from evil, that I may not cause pain!”
