Today we are featuring three leading ladies of the Triad who have something timely to share with you and your families. Whether you are looking for a new summer camp idea, ways to spend more time in your backyard this season, or if you’re looking to get your house ready for spring and summer, you’ll want to meet Rozalynn, Shea and Tina. We’re thrilled to have them as Main Street Moms on the Move this month.
If you know of a local mom you would like to see highlighted, please email me at Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com!
Every day, Rozalynn Fulton gets to have fun, be swept away to an imaginary place, and sometimes even act like a drama queen. As Youth Programs Education Director for the Community Theatre of Greensboro, Rozalynn oversees after school classes, summer camps, youth productions and outreach programs. She also directs the Centerstage Youth Performing Group as well as some youth productions.
Her favorite part of her job is seeing a shy child, who has never before performed on stage, experience being part of a cast and finishing a production with a big smile because of what they’ve accomplished. “I love that we get to have fun,” says Rozalynn. “Many of the Jr. shows that we do have so many great characters, and it’s fun to watch a child be someone different. Kids learn so many life skills by participating in theatre.”
This spring, Rozalynn is excited to watch her students perform in Madagascar Jr (May 12 – May 21) and Alice in Wonderland Jr (June 9 – 18).
When asked about the hardest part of her job, she said it’s definitely during audition time. “Many times it is hard when you have 50-60 kids audition for a show but you can only cast 30.” For those children who are eager to get started, Rozalynn’s advice is to always come prepared with a song, be confident and show off your personality.
Rozalynn and her husband, Jevon, have four children: Tiana (19) Iyanna (14) Morgan (9) Elijah (4). In their household there is very little “free time” between volleyball, track, violin, saxophone, basketball, soccer and t-ball. But just like Rozalynn, everyone in her family likes to stay active and busy. When she does get some down time, Rozalynn enjoys reading and shopping.
It’s the perfect time of year to highlight the entrepreneurial mom behind Mosquito Authority of the Triad! Shea and her husband, Chip, are the owners who have been treating mosquitos and protecting families and pets in our area for nearly seven years. Together, they have two sons: Trey (18) and Spencer (15).
This season, Shea is thrilled to announce that Mosquito Authority has joined forces with Bayer, the trusted brand of everyday necessities like aspirin and sunscreen. This relationship guarantees they are able to provide the best mosquito control solutions and, ultimately, a happier, healthier backyard to enjoy with your loved ones.
Shea has lived in the Triad for 22 years, and Chip has lived here his entire life. Because of this, Shea says it’s important to her that every client is treated like family and is happy with Mosquito Authority. “We pride ourselves on our customer service,” she says. “We treat yards 6 days a week to make sure our customers have the best experience possible. If you call on a Friday night, you won’t have to wait until Monday for us to come back. We will be there on Saturday.”
Of course, as a business owner, the hours are hard which is why Shea makes family time a priority. “I always try to be in the moment because time goes by quickly. I always heard the days go slow, but the years go fast. This is truer to me than ever as our son Trey is about to graduate high school so enjoy every moment you have with your children.”
When not busy working or giving back to the community, Shea enjoys exercising, cooking, watching sports, spending time with friends and family, and being an Autism Awareness advocate (in honor of their son Spencer) with local organizations.
If you’ve followed TMoM for any small amount of time, chances are good you’ve heard us mention TL Cleaning. This home and office cleaning company was born in 2008 to local mom, Tina Plummer, who was inspired to start the business so she could have more quality time at home with her children (Franklin, now 20; Tabitha, now 16 ½; and Levi, now 5 ½).
Before starting her own business, Tina was getting home at 8 pm when she would just then start the daily evening struggle and juggling act of homework, dinner, showers and bedtimes for her kids. “It was almost impossible,” she said. “Children grow up way too quickly to not stop and take it all in before you miss it.”
Today, Tina calls T.L. Cleaning Co. her fourth baby. “It truly has a personality of its own. I’m able to give and receive blessings every day. We help keep clients and friends’ homes in good order, and make a smile come to their face when they completed a hard day’s work. My very favorite thing is to be a blessing to someone when it isn’t expected.”
TL Cleaning uses only non-toxic and environmentally safe household products. These products are great for families with small children and pets, and those with allergies or chemical sensitivities. They provide residential and commercial cleaning services on a weekly, bi-weekly, monthly, special occasion or as-needed basis. Tina employs 16 team members (many of whom are long-time employees) to service her clients throughout the Triad. All of her staff is carefully screened, trained and efficient, and Tina is always seeking to hire additional support.
When not busy with TL Cleaning, Tina and her husband, Rick, work as independent consultants for Rodan & Fields. She also enjoys reading, shooting at the local gun range, taking short trips with her family, helping others, and finding some quiet time.
