Sharon Vinderine

Sharon Vinderine is the founder of Parent Tested Parent Approved (PTPA), where over 100,000 parents come on a monthly basis to make purchasing decisions for their family.

PTPA was started after Sharon, an inventor of a baby product, was looking for ways to promote one of her new products. After submitting her new product to several “awards” that had promised to reach her consumer audience, she was disappointed to find that everyone who applied was an automatic winner – receiving no feedback or outreach. This prompted the creation of The Parent Tested Parent Approved Awards.

PTPA is based on the foundation that people want the highest quality products for their children. What better way to ensure that your child is getting the best products than by having fellow parents tests them?

As a leader in her field, Sharon has been acknowledged by the media as an industry leader and innovator. She has been recommended as a “top notch Entrepreneur with tremendous smarts.” She has appeared on over 75 morning shows on TV.

Sharon received her Double Honours degree from York University in Toronto and continues leading her two successful companies – PTPA Media and Small Made Simple – from Toronto. She resides in Toronto with her husband and two children, aged seven and nine.
