Q. What are you most proud of? What is your biggest success?
A. Acupuncture Works! is a 100% family-owned business. What I am most proud of is that my daughter, a student at the U of A, and my mother, a retired nurse, work at the clinic. It fills me with pride to say that three generations of women work together, offering their very best to their community. Generations taking care of generations. That’s what we’re about.
Q. Was your business impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic?
A. I think we’re the only business I know that had to get larger in order to survive. Our business was closed for months, but when we reopened, very few people wanted to come downtown. Most people were working from home. When our clients booked, they only wanted to come in the evenings, but we didn’t have enough clinic space to treat them. In order to accommodate the clients that wanted to come, we moved to a larger space within our building and reimagined every aspect of our business.
