How did you get into your business, or what motivated you to start it?: I commuted to D.C., employed as a reference librarian for large, corporate law firms, for 17 years.
The commute finally won. I looked for something I could do locally and found The Skin Care Shop in Shepherdstown, W.Va. The owner needed an esthetician and said if I went to skin-care school, she'd hire me when I completed the course of study."
