Tricia Fortina, CA
A Multipure Master Builder and Founders’ Circle member, Tricia Fortina began her Builder Business seven years ago as a way to help the Earth and offer people a better, healthier choice for clean drinking water than plastic bottled water. She is a firm proponent of the strength and quality of NSF certification, and believes that successful Builders – as representatives of Multipure to the consumer – act professionally in appearance and demeanor, and are absolutely solid on the facts and information they present. A Californian for almost thirty years, Tricia is motivated by her ability to support the Earth while earning an income, and is grateful to be able to share her information with others and work with a company that stands behind its products, its Builders, and its customers.
Tiffany Johnson, FL
One of Multipure’s most dynamic new Builders, Tiffany Johnson is a born and raised Floridian who seized her Multipure business opportunity in September 2018. Growing up in the small town of Satellite Beach, she noticed with alarm the increased incidences of rare cancer diagnoses among her friends and people of the communities in the area, and understood that carcinogens may be present and undetected in everyday aspects of life. Her mother had been introduced to Multipure’s products and opportunity in the late 1980s, and had stressed to Tiffany the importance of clean drinking water to her throughout her life; this strongly influenced her decision to join the Multipure family of Builders in order to make a difference toward the health and happiness of people everywhere. Tiffany believes that a successful Builder requires passion, consistency, and organization, and credits fellow Builder and National Award Winner Heather Kollar for her support, mentorship, and friendship in her burgeoning Builder Business. She keeps energized and motivated by knowing that with Multipure, she is making a difference in safeguarding the water and health of people and families.
Heather Kollar, NY
Hailing from Baldwin, New York, Master Builder Heather Kollar has been a Builder since 2012, but has been actively committed toward her Multipure business primarily within the last several years. She discovered Multipure while researching water solutions alongside her mother, Brenda Toyloy, and is a firm believer in the power of education and local knowledge of community water issues. She is driven by the ability to make a much-needed difference in people’s lives while developing a business in conjunction with such a solid company as Multipure. For Heather, Builder success requires passion for helping people and the environment, commitment toward working the business, and understanding that Multipure is the best solution for cleaner, healthier drinking water.
Ahlem Mayes, CA
Ahlem Mayes is one of Multipure’s most passionate and driven entrepreneurs, who quickly achieved numerous rank advancements and acclaims shortly after joining the Multipure family of Builders.

With an educational background in Accounting, Business Practice, and Sociology, Brenda is determined to help people obtain the clean water they need, both through Multipure and through community and municipal efforts.
