Lily Carson

With a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering and M.S. in Industrial Engineering, Lily spent years working in the corporate world. When she was ready to start a family, her one-hundred mile commute to the corporate office was a bit too much. She wanted something that would work with her new family—flexible daily schedule and no nights or weekends. When a friend joked about starting a business, her interest was piqued and she began doing research online. Lily found MaidPro. After she talked to other franchisees and visited the team at the Boston headquarters, she was sold. At first, she wasn’t sure she could run her own business, but now she has a thriving company with ninety employees and two offices. Lily has also found owning a MaidPro franchise has helped her grow in all parts of her life, recognizing her strengths and learning how her skills best fit running her business.
