I was born and raised in Cherry Hill, NJ. I have taken many turns before becoming a nitpicker. I went to college for environmental science and worked in the hazardous waste industry for many years before starting a family (all good background for the head lice biz wouldn’t you say?!) Once my children entered elementary school it was time to help support the family. At the same time, M.J. Eckert, my college roommate, was starting Lice Happens. I am not sure it was divine intervention or just bad luck but my daughter contracted lice 3 months after the creation of the company!
I drove 2 hours to Annapolis for M.J. to rid my daughter of the pesky little critters and while there thought to myself,” I would be really good at this.” After many weeks of training, I started helping families in South Jersey and the Philadelphia metropolitan area. It has been 6 wonderful years helping families beat the bugs! What I like most about this job is walking into a home full of stress and anxiety and then walking out of the home knowing that mom will have a good night’s sleep and life will go back to normal. I have also enjoyed building a great team of lice specialists that are out in the field every day educating families to be lice experts!
