Years ago, my family and I experienced head lice. I was frantic and called Lice Happens.

It has been said that a person won’t remember the exact words spoken to them, only how those words made them feel. Since it has been awhile, I couldn’t tell you exactly what the voice on the other end of the phone said to me at that moment, but I do remember feeling a lot less frantic and I knew I was in good hands.

Fast forward to a few years later-The opportunity presented itself to work for this incredible company as their Executive Assistant. I love that I am in a position to be that voice on the other end of the line to someone in need and only hope to give back some of what I received a few years ago.

      Do I like bugs? No. Do I hate them?… mosquitoes, possibly, but lice no. So, why am I a Lice Treatment Specialist? Well, Lice Happens provides a great service. I feel really good about that. And it’s a clean, efficient process so I don’t mind doing it. It’s my pleasure, really. I’m a single mom, with a full-time job. This is my part-time job. And I love it all.

      I did hate lice once though, actually twice. When lice happened to my family. It was the worst case scenario. When it was over it wasn’t really over; it came back. Those were cursed times; a dark period is my family’s history. But ironically, it was a blessing in disguise. Long story short, it’s what inspired my sister and her close friend to find a better way – to help families like mine. And they did. And it’s called Lice Happens. That was about six or seven years ago.

      I decided to join them two years ago as a Lice Treatment Specialist. Life, came full circle. Now if someone could do for flea and bedbug removal, what Lice Happens has done for lice removal, that would be amazing.

          Nitpicking is my blood.  From the time I can remember, my mom has been checking my head for lice!  After she and Nancy started Lice Happens, I couldn’t wait until I was old enough to help families too.

          As a nursing student, I can combine my technical skills along with my passion for working with children.  There is no greater joy than the relief I see on a parents face after treating their family and empowering them to be able to prevent an infestation in the future.

              A friend was singing the praises of the service she received from Lice Happens after having tried unsuccessfully to eradicate head lice from her family for weeks. She was so impressed with the efficiency and professionalism of the treatment specialist and the process.
              As I listened, an unwelcome memory involuntarily entered my consciousness — that of my husband and I returning from Guatemala with our adopted daughter not realizing at the time she wasn’t alone!!! The time and effort of combing through her hair, the awful smelling products, and taking care of the home was beyond overwhelming for this new mom!
              I love working for Lice Happens because it’s so rewarding to treat a family and leave them empowered to conquer the situation on their own in the future. As a former teacher, I get to use my “tricks of the trade” to help calm parents and make the treatment a positive experience for children.

                  I learned about Lice Happens when my mentor/friend learned that I was moving to the Baltimore-Washington metro area upon graduating from the University of North Carolina. Understanding my values and work ethic, and wanting only the best for me, she was emphatic that I meet the founders of Lice Happens.
                  Having graduated Summa Cum Laude, I value the process of learning and I’m thrilled that Lice Happens’ business model includes empowering parents through knowledge sharing and hands-on training.
                  I am happy that I will be joining my passions (talking and being of service to people) in such a way that will serve an area I am proud to now call home. It’s not just about helping families, it’s about reassuring them that this problem is not unique to them and that we are in this together to relieve their fears.
                  I am excited to be part of the Lice Happens family!

                      I admit it… I am a nitpicker! I mean, I am now. I didn’t used to be.

                      My kids had lice several years ago and after trying unsuccessfully to get rid of it myself, I called Lice Happens. They calmed me down over the phone and were able to fit me in the next day to accommodate my schedule. I was delighted when they didn’t show up with a huge rotating louse on the top of the car or t-shirts that said LICE HAPPENS as they strolled up my walkway- very discreet!

                      I was amazed by the process, the education, the hands-on training, and even the laughter throughout the visit. Consequently, I found myself actually enjoying picking through my girl’s hair on a regular basis.

                      Recently I thought to myself, “hmmm… maybe I could put my picking habit into good use by helping other families?” So, here I am, a thoroughly trained and certified Lice Treatment Specialist and subject matter expert. Come to think of it, that makes me more than a nitpicker – and I’m proud of it!

                          It’s a true pleasure having found gratifying work that allows me to help people and bring together all of my skills into one place; Lice Happens! I’m sure to call upon my years of experience counseling families in difficult situations in an emergency healthcare setting as I respond to clients’ urgent need to get rid of head lice, transition them back to normalcy, and empower them through education and training.
                          Using safe, non-toxic products while respectfully and compassionately working with families within the privacy of their homes represents everything I would want for my own family. My driving force is to leave families I serve with peace of mind and a pleasurable experience.
                          I look forward to each day in my role as a Lice Treatment Specialist!

                              I wish Lice Happens had been around when my daughter contracted head lice!  As a parting gift from an otherwise successful year in first grade, my daughter started summer vacation with a head full of lice. Fueled by panic and misinformation, the following weeks were spent with her stuffed animals in plastic bags, washing mountains of laundry, pesticide treatments and 3 hour a day sessions of combing her hair.  Hardly the kick off to summer we had anticipated!  The old adage, “If I only knew then what I know now” could not be more fitting.

                              It is so satisfying to be a part of the Lice Happens team as a thoroughly trained and certified Lice Treatment Specialist.  Using non-toxic products, proper combing techniques, and educating my clients allows me to eliminate the unnecessary trials and tribulations of treating head lice.  Ending each session with a stress-free client who is well informed and empowered is the greatest reward.

                                  With several years experience in Customer Service and Administration, over 20 years volunteering in the public school system, volunteering as a coach in Special Olympics and local sporting clubs, and raising five children I’ve seen and overcome my fair share of challenges. Yet, these types of challenges tend to pale in comparison to battling a head lice infestation! The typical approach to treating head lice often becomes an all-consuming struggle for families, who just long for life before lice!
                                  With patience, compassion, enthusiasm, thorough training, and the best tools of the trade, I’ll turn crisis into calm and defeat into empowerment!

                                      For the past 19 yrs I have worked in a preschool setting, wearing two hats – school nurse & primary teacher. A large component of that job was educating parents to help guide them to create the most positive atmosphere ever for their child to grow and thrive.
                                      As a Lice Treatment Specialist with Lice Happens, I will greatly continue that role — treating the child and family while teaching the parent, which, again, allows their child to thrive!
                                      Lice Happens prides itself on the educational component of their service and this focus, along with extremely high standards of treatment, makes this a company that I enjoy working with!
