Hello to Andover Friends

A 2020 Hello and Update From Mary 

By Mary Meier

Happy New Year!

I can’t believe that another year is in the books. Welcome 2020! I just wanted to take this time to update my friends and customers.

I sold the salon, New Horizons Hairstylist to Meghan Barton on July 1, 2019. That seemed like yesterday! Roy and I took most of the summer helping our daughter Shelbi and her family move into what was the home where I grew up. My mother is now living in an apartment in that home. The kids finally moved in September into the house.

I then started to look at what I want to be when I grow up! After 38 years in the hair industry, I wanted to find something new and different. I started applying for jobs, but soon found that although I owned my own successful business for almost 20 years, I did not have experience in much else. I continued to apply for jobs and got turned down. I decided I needed more education. December came and I started an online course. I am beginning a course in Medical Coding. I have always been fascinated with the science of medicine. Currently I am taking a medical terminology course. Studying and applying for jobs.

I also have been working on our house! Roy and I hope to put our house on the market in the spring. We are decluttering, painting and freshening up our 20 year-old house. (I can’t believe it has been 20 years.) We are not sure where the next place will be. We want to lighten our load and downsize while we are still young.

I am not sure where my journey will take me. I am very grateful to my customers and friends for supporting me. I learned so much from you through the years. I am excited to see how my future unfolds. I want to be mindful of my next chapter.

I would love to hear from you. Below is my contact information. Drop me an email or letter. Again, I thank you for all the hugs, the laughs and all the hair at New Horizons Hairstylists. Many of you have transitioned to the Mane Street Salon. Meghan and her team have done a great job with the building and I am sure she will have continued success. Here is to 2020!

In peace,
