I am proud to share that December 20th of this year will mark the three-year anniversary of the opening of my Medispa, Refresh! As I reflected on the past three years, there are so many people and things for which I am grateful.
Firstly, I am grateful for my loving and supportive family, for my sweet husband, Terry, who insisted on installing a security system in the Medispa and who personally filled the holes and cracks in the old side-walk out front, all for our safety.
I am grateful for my children, John and Dale, who helped me navigate Google and Instagram, and for everyone who advised and encouraged me. I am grateful for Kate, my first assistant, who cheerfully helped me through the early, slow days, and uncertain COVID months, and my current assistant, Nadya, who skillfully orchestrates hectic weeks.
I am grateful for my neighbors on Mechanic Street: George, owner of Island Silver, and Betsy, owner of Betsy by Design, who create a true sense of community and offer neighborly support through flooded streets, jack-hammered sidewalks and all of the trials of running a small business in downtown Galveston.
And finally, I am grateful for you, my wonderful clients. One of my greatest joys since opening Refresh has been the opportunity to get to know each one of you. Thank you for trusting me with your care and for sharing your pictures, your stories and your lives with me. With all of my heart, I wish you and your families a happy holiday season full of peace, love and joy.
