I got married in 1970, had three children, and, later, raised them as a single parent in the late 1980s. I did hair at my house and for shut-ins. I worked as a Senior Cosmetologist in 1985 where I ran Mr. Anthony’s Salon in Eldersburg, until 1997. The business was eventually given to his daughter. I left, had carpal tunnel surgery on both hands. After healing, I worked at Mane Attraction Salon for about 3 years. I bought the business from the previous owner and changed the business name to Main Attraction Salon where I was an owner-operator of my own salon in 2002.
