In 1980, a stay-at-home mother decided she wanted a part time job where she could work flexible hours and take her children along and work the necessary hours around their schedules. She also became a foster parent, making her home and business a place for all the children to grow and learn the values needed for the world they faced. In 1989 she expanded her business to a strip mall, employing her first focus group facility. In 2000, she expanded again, into the free-standing facility on Bell Rd.
