Owner, Manager and President
Lori is a single mother and a business woman who worked in various industries and companies over her career, in executive level and management positions. Lori always enjoyed the beauty industry and grew up around it since her mother was a cosmetologist while Lori was growing up. Lori worked as a shampoo girl in a salon where her mother worked when Lori was just 10 years old. She enjoyed being around the friendly woman who tipped her even though she got them a little wet! Lori has lived in Parker Colorado since 2002. Prior to that, she lived in Denver and Highlands Ranch. She was born in Pennsylvania but says she will never leave beautiful Colorado! The Polished Nail Spa and Salon was born when Lori stopped working in Denver and tried to find a nail salon that was clean and met her standards of hygiene. After trying several salons in the area, she continued to drive all the way to Denver to have her manicures and pedicures. Then it occurred to her that other women in South metro Denver must have the same concerns about cleanliness, hygiene and sanitation that she does and voila` The Polished Nail Spa and Salon was born! To quote Lori “At The Polished Nail Spa and Salon, you never have to worry about hygiene. We go over and above the state standards of cleanliness and disinfecting. We take it to he highest level to ensure the most hygienic process available for the most hygienic manicures and pedicures. Sanitization is a must for all areas we service: nail care, hair care and skin care, which includes waxing.” She goes on to say: ”I am learning to love this industry and the people who work in it! I want to use my day spa as a vehicle to help other women. We are in the early stages of building this business but eventually we will have certain programs here to benefit cancer survivors and women of little means.” Lori enjoys spending time with her daughter and her pets. She is a huge animal lover and supporter. In addition to her child, Lori has 2 dogs, 2 horses, 2 cats and a fish, of course! In addition, she loves the outdoors and enjoys hiking, walking, snow shoeing, gardening and reading.
