Our Story

We've loved every minute of our journey

It all started with a lay-off!
Mike was laid off his middle management job at an auto part remanufacturing plant in August, 2000. He was escorted out of the building after working there for six years by someone whom he considered to be a friend. Because they gave him a good severance package and the ability to collect unemployment, Mike had plenty of time to think about what he would do next. He also had the time to read a book that had been given to him by the owner of his previous job, "Acres of Diamonds", by Russell Conwell, founder of Temple University.  It was this book that inspired him to start Sharkey Shines!

Loretta works in the field with the team, at times, and does everything except climb tall extension ladders. She also does a lot of behind the scenes work, such as writing this website and keeping it up to date.  Loretta also does the email and social media marketing for the business.
For each new job, Loretta develops a custom cleaning plan and supply list.

Loretta's true passion, however, is healthy eating a plant-based lifestyle. She is an excellent plant-based chef and success coach. If you are interested in starting a plant-based lifestyle, complete the contact information under "contact us".

Mike and Loretta have been married for 33 years and have two sons, Ross and Tevin, whom they adopted when they were 5 and 4 years old, respectively. They are both Christians, and are very active in their church, True Vine Church Community. Mike is the Head Deacon, Loretta is a Deaconess, and both he and Loretta hold a Discipleship group in their home each week. They are both also short-term missionaries to Haiti. Their last trip was in August, 2018. Next year, their son, Ross, will be the team leader for the trip to Haiti!

Ross Sharkey

Mike and Loretta's son, Ross' attention to detail is very high, and he is a great asset to the business. As a youth, Ross had the opportunity to be a sports ambassador with People to People. He traveled to Amsterdam to play soccer. Ross is also a youth leader at True Vine Church Community. He also travels with his parents to Haiti on mission trips to serve children and youth in Gressier and Port-Au-Prince.
