Why did you open a drug and alcohol testing facility?
My husband, Tony, and I always wanted to own and operate our own business and after working with several Franchise Consultants and investigating many types of franchises we chose to become a Franchisee of the ARCpoint Labs National Network in December of 2014. We are very happy we opened our ARCpoint Labs location in the Santa Fe Springs/Whittier market and are looking forward to opening more locations within the next year or two.
After many years of working for other business owners, it was clear that my next step was to become an owner of my own business and make it the success I know it would be. With the support and assistance of my family, we are now entering our third year of operation and looking forward to opening another office/location soon.
Serving the needs of local small to mid sized companies and also offering our services to individuals is the driving force that keeps us focused on success.
What was your background? How many years?
I have an extensive background and experience in sales (Retail, Real Estate, Banking and Finance and Consumer Products) and the ARCpoint Labs business model fits perfectly in to what I am very good at and what I love to do. Engaging with individual clients, assisting companies with providing solutions to their Drug/Alcohol/DNA testing needs and building a successful business is very exciting and rewarding.
Other community involvement? Organizations?
I am very involved with the local community business groups and this interaction and participation has helped launch our business. Currently I am an Ambassador for the Santa Fe Springs Chamber of Commerce, an Ambassador of the Whittier Area Chamber of Commerce, a Member of the Whittier Rotary Club and serve on several committee boards within the Santa Fe Springs and Whittier Area Chamber of Commerce Organizations. I am a member of the ARCpoint Labs National Advisory Committee representing new business franchise owners across the country and a member of the ARCpoint Labs Business Development Committee. I also serve as the National Advisory Committee Secretary.
