Why Budget Blinds of Warren and Boardman
Meet your Budget Blinds Team of Boardman & Warren!
Owner & Design Specialist
Shirell Tislaretz became the Owner and Design Specialist of Budget Blinds of Boardman and Warren in November of 2015. As a lifelong resident of Monaca, Shirell thoroughly connects to the community in which she serves. A mother of two grown children, a son, and a daughter, she likes to read, bake, and attend Youngstown State University football games (her son, Travis is the Tight End Coach). Shirell has an Associates Degree in Accounting, as well as Entrepreneurship Training, but it’s her passion for helping people that drives her to continued success!
Frank Tislaretz became Owner of Budget Blinds of Boardman and Warren with his wife Shirell on November 30, 2015. Although a self-proclaimed “silent partner” due to the majority of his time spent doing his day job, his leadership and help have been essential to the team! Frank grew up in Ellwood City, just outside of the franchise’s territory, and relocated to Shirell’s hometown of Monaca raising their two children, and coaching baseball, softball, football, and basketball. He has an associates degree from the New Castle School of Trades and enjoys golfing in his spare time. The knowledge gained from earning his degree, as well as the skills he has acquired throughout his life, have aided Frank and the entire Budget Blinds of Boardman and Warren in becoming a very successful franchise!

Business Development and Design Consultant
Here at Budget Blinds of Boardman and Warren, we love celebrating our team members and all the great things they bring to our branch and our community! This time, we’d like to recognize Becky Guisler. She is our Business Development and Design Consultant—and wow, does she bring a lot of skills to the team!
Prior to accepting her position at Budget Blinds, Becky spent 15 years working with window coverings for big box retailers, independent dealers, and consumers. That’s given her knowledge and expertise in pretty much every aspect of window treatments—with an emphasis on color and design.
Becky’s customer service skills are unparalleled. She welcomes clients with enthusiasm, attention to detail, and exceptional service. With that, she looks forward to serving our community!
Born in Brookville, these days Becky resides with her son Josh in Ellwood City. When not at work with us, you’ll find her home with her son or engaged in one of many activities. In fact, she’s proudly added “author” to her list of achievements, having just completed writing her first children’s book, which she’s excited to share with the world. Titled “Hello, My Friend,” it will be available on Amazon in autumn 2022.
Becky also loves working on DIY projects, flower gardening, walking, and she’s recently started roller skating again.
In and around the community, Becky engages in a variety of activities. She’s been involved in her son’s high school Football Boosters, and she also joined the Ellwood City 4th of July Festival as the Festival Chairmen and Children’s Area coordinator. She also implemented the Little Miss Firecracker Pageant.
Becky is fantastic to have around here at Budget Blinds—and she does amazing work within the community, too. Join us in celebrating everything she has to offer, both here with us and out in the community!
Here at Budget Blinds, we think it’s important to recognize the amazing people who make our business so awesome! That’s why we’re taking some time to shout out to Sharon Tislaretz. She’s an Administrative Assistant here at Budget Blinds, a position she’s held since May 2021.
There is a lot that she loves about this job! The organization and the compassion are two of her favorite things—and she tells us that she enjoys being able to help customers with any needs they may have. Sharon brings great people skills to the table, too—and with an associate’s degree in ultrasound from the Pittsburgh Career Institute, it’s no wonder why!
When she’s not at work, Sharon can be found spending time with her family. That includes her husband William, who is an army veteran, having served as a 12R Interior Electrician at Fort Bragg, North Carolina (also where this couple happened to meet!). Sharon also has an adorable son, Jase, who is one year old, plus two cats, Brody and Moira. To hear her tell it, Sharon’s favorite hobby is shopping!
Sharon is also born and raised in this area. She grew up in Monaco, PA and has lived here in total for 22 years. She spent three years in North Carolina after college, having returned back here last year to be closer to her family.
Join us in celebrating Sharon and her contributions here! She’s a huge part of what makes our store so special.
