Meet Hilary Altman of Orange Cross Lice Removal in North Miami

Today we’d like to introduce you to Hilary Altman.

Hilary, let’s start with your story. We’d love to hear how you got started and how the journey has been so far.
After 20 years in the fashion industry and having two young girls of our own we discovered the gift of lice. Initially it was shocking and disturbing as we did not know what to do. Mom at home with two kids with lice while Daddy travels constantly on business. Needless to say, there was a good level of panic. Our first case of lice was pretty bad and Mommy had it bad too. By the third time our kids had lice we realized there was a real problem and found out about the Super Lice Epidemic. We also realized there was a lack of professionally trained and thorough facilities available to manage the problem and only some rogue in home services using a variety of methods. We grew concerned when one of these services we utilized did not completely eradicate the problem when we had a different professional do a head check on our kids. At that point the idea blossomed and The Orange Cross was born.

Has it been a smooth road?
Pretty smooth so far! Very much determined to stick around and even hopefully open other locations.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the Orange Cross Lice Removal story. Tell us more about the business.
We offer a safe, organic, and toxin free service to achieve a lice free life for your family. Our primary method is the Strand by Strand method which is the most thorough and complete method for lice removal. Our owner and operator has trained at the world renowned Shepherd institute where ongoing research and continuing education bring state of the art and current lice techniques to all the institutes alumni and affiliates.

We are very proud of our branding.

We consider ourselves different from everyone else for our attention to detail and our willingness to perform a few lice checks to make sure the lice is gone.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?
Probably with multiple locations and possible franchising.
