Nancy Fields, Co-founder & Lice Treatment SpecialistBy the time my twin sister called me for help, she and her children had already missed numerous days from work and school because of head lice. After using an over-the-counter pesticide according to label instructions, she was still finding lice and nits. As a single mom, my sister was overwhelmed just trying to keep herself together, feeling like she’d never win the battle.

I suspected my sister’s experience was not unique and realized that parents have been left to tackle the time-consuming and frustrating task of head lice removal alone, while trying to navigate through a barrage of information and misinformation about head lice treatment. Lice Happens was created to offer an alternative, and I’ve found it to be a fulfilling way for me to apply my process-oriented quality assurance background to a much needed service.

M.J. Eckert, RN, Co-Founder & Lice Treatment SpecialistI’ve dealt with hundreds of families affected with head lice during my sixteen years as a nurse, especially during the last seven years as a school and camp nurse. I find it very rewarding to help families get their lives back to normal by providing hands-on treatment to eliminate the infestation, and straightforward, accurate information to help families avoid the cycle of re-infestation.

The feeling of satisfaction I have after helping a family through this experience, and giving them the tools and knowledge they need to tackle the problem, is what I love most about the work we do at Lice Happens.
