Beauty and Nikki, Front Desk Staff
Many people are quick to notice our front desk helpers, Beauty (who works mornings) and Nikki (who works afternoon and evenings). Beauty and Nikki can be found calling out a cheery "hello!" as clients walk in and a friendly "bye-bye!" as you go on your way. They are also very good at chewing up files, and can sometimes be persuaded to sing a little song for you. We love having Beauty and Nikki on staff with us. Be sure to say hi the next time you are in!
