Tina Burton moved to Canada in the winter of 1991. After working four years as both a caregiver and pizza delivery person, Tina collaborated with a friend in 1995 to open Sunrise-Cleaning. After four successful years of providing high-quality, cost-effective service, Tina bought the business from her partner. Today, Tina runs one of the most successful cleaning companies in the GTA.
Sunrise-Cleaning developed out of need. Tina, recognizing no affordable cleaning services existed in Oakville, opened Sunrise-Cleaning under the philosophy of “customized service.” Rather than working from an impersonal list of common cleaning operations like other companies, Tina worked with each of her clients to develop customized cleaning programs. Each program, unique to a customer, ensures clients are completely satisfied with the services they receive.
To enhance her computer competence and to satisfy a technical curiosity, Tina returned to college in 1998 to pursue a diploma in computer programming. Studying part-time at Humber College, Tina graduated with high honours in 2002. Because of her outstanding academic achievements, Tina received the prestigious President’s Letter for maintaining the highest GPA in her program. Tina already held a diploma in Building Design and Construction.
Tina currently resides in the west end of Mississauga with her husband, Ryan, their daughter, Kyla, son, Aden, and two Boston Terriers, Max and Maya. As time allows, Tina and her family enjoy weekends camping, bike riding, swimming, skiing, hiking and sightseeing. They have plans to one day visit Europe and tour its many wonders. In the meantime, however, Tina and Ryan are just focusing on being really good parents.
