First of all, her license to practice electrolysis was granted and is maintained in the state of Massachusetts, but she lives and works in Arizona. That means her practice is out of the jurisdictional reach of the licensing body that granted her that piece of paper. She does no actual hair removal in the state of Massachusetts!
Secondly, Arizona is an unregulated state, so there is no governing body overseeing the practice of electrolysis in her area. She is NOT a member of the American Electrology Association, and even if she were, they could only admonish her to “take a chill pill” or face expulsion under the morals clause.
Like many of the ongoing rants here on this site and others across the net, I would hope that people can read what is there, and come to a good conclusion about the veracity of the information and the reliability of the source of said so-called information.
Now, for disclosure, I must inform you that about once a year, she does something to attack me, like the year she spent all of Christmas Vacation calling around the country to personally bad mouth me to electrologists all over the USA. (As if no one was going to call me to inform me of this deranged behavior) I also seem to have a place of (dis)honor on her site, and in her mind where she spins great yarns of my exploits and a whole life I know nothing about.
My lawyer says I have a clear cut case of slander based on many of the things she has printed, posted, and said, however, he also points out that proving damages to be awarded would be problematic, because who in their right mind would change their mind about seeing me based on anything this fruitcake said, no matter how many times she said it, and no matter how many forums she said it in.
Anyway, there is a special place here on HairTell where you can read the conversations between Andrea and Kim, and if you dare read the whole thread, you will be very afraid for the people of Scottsdale/Phoenix Arizona. Those folks, after all, don’t know if she is standing in line in front of them at the SuperMarket!
