About our guest:
Timika Downes started her career as a public accountant for Deloitte and Touche, and eventually, went back to school for nursing. Although she worked in traditional medical settings, when her kids were younger she switched to school nursing, in order to be on their schedule…. which is where she learned about head lice, and eventually, opened a clinic to treat it.
Timika’s clinic, Lice Clinics of America-Medford opened in December of 2016, and has been an “awesome and rewarding experience helping families to fight this problem of head lice.” Timika’s technicians treat hundreds of cases of head lice in MA alone. The treatment is only about an hour and renders you lice free via a machine that dehydrates all of the eggs and all of the bugs.
Timika also co-hosts a podcast, House of Fi, where she discusses the art of becoming financially independent.
