Imagine Academy Daycare, Preschool, Learning Center

2017-02-15_0007 1. Hello! It's so great to have you on the blog! I want start by asking you to introduce yourself, what sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?

I love spending time with my three kids and husband Mark. Whether it's playing at the park, making creations at home, or reading to them! Mark is the Director of Bands at Laurel Highlands, so I love going to concerts and enjoying the high school's ensembles. I am also part of the school board, trying to make a difference for our district and community. Finally, I love to cook, bake and exercise in all my free time ;) !

2. So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located.

We are a daycare and preschool center, housing children aged 6 weeks old all the way up to school aged. We provide care and early education for these little ones, and my amazing staff works so hard to make sure they are so very loved and learn through play, social interaction and our curriculum that prepares them for the big leap to kindergarten! We also are along the Marshall School bus route through Laurel Highlands School District, so we provide before and after school care for school aged children. We are located on North Gallatin Avenue Extension in Uniontown.

3. Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?

I just love working with the children! Every part of my life involves the youth of the community, as I feel they're the most valuable asset we have! I love seeing them grow through the center--tiny babies that blossom into beautiful little young people that spread their wings out into the big world when they leave us. I want to provide the best foundation possible, and I firmly believe we do that here. I love meeting new families and making those community connections nurturing some of the youth of the county.

4. Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work?

Imagine Academy exists to enhance and develop the emotional well-being and social development of our children, with a particular focus on the encouragement of a child’s natural imagination. Through our classrooms, we hope to develop social, ethical and intellectual skills, offering a variety of useful education explorations, while maintaining a safe and nurturing environment for children to thrive to their fullest potential.

5. Is there any ways in which your business gives back to the community?

Imagine Academy has various community service projects each month. We did our angel tree in December for a local nursing home and also had a toy drive. Our preschool students colore pictures for children at Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh. We aim for a service project each month and our families rise to the occasion every time. We believe there is so much value in teaching our youth to give back.

2017-02-13_0005 Dr. Robert Baker, DC, husband to Julie, father to Brody and Jackson, chiropractor

I am a very active person. I enjoy the outdoors and all it has to offer! I fish & hunt with my son Jackson and I mountain bike & rock climb with my son Brody. As a family we enjoy, water skiing, snow skiing, hiking, camping, traveling, swimming, bowling, and coaching my kids soccer, basketball and baseball teams. My newest hobby is running. I recently completed my first full marathon in January and have one on the books for March!

I am a chiropractor and a certified strength and conditioning specialist. Our patients come to us with joint and back ailments from chronic symptoms such as headaches and back aches to acute injuries from car accidents and slip and falls. My team and I help our patients by skeletal adjusting, rehabilitative and supportive exercise, and education of nutritio to improve health. We promote health improvement, wellness and disease prevention through appropriate care and education. We also use essential oils, detoxing ionic foot bath and our newest endeavor, Hair Analysis to evaluate the vitamin and mineral levels in the body.   I am also a certified medical examiner with the Department of Transportation and can provide you with your physical for a driver license.

2017-02-13_0002

I wanted to become a chiropractor since I was in Junior High. My grandfather was a medical doctor and I wanted to follow in his footsteps. I knew early on that I wanted a more natural approach to healthcare and researched the different medical fields. Chiropractic was the answer. I am a people person by nature and this profession has allowed me to help people. There is so much joy in knowing that my life’s work has helped people to walk again, to smile again and become active again.

2017-02-13_0003

At Baker Chiropractic, our mission statement is that we will provide the members of our community with high quality, affordable health care in a comfortable caring environment. Our goal is to not only alleviate pain, but more importantly, inspire and educate our patients to become active participants in their own wellbeing.

Every person carries the inborn potential to be truly healthy.   Our mission and purpose is to help you activate the innate (God given) healing response, the natural ability your body has to heal itself so that you, too, are able to carry out your life’s mission and purpose and abundance. We feel blessed and called to serve others. We desire to correct the cause, not its effect, to free rather than control, to assist rather than intrude.

Let it Shine Christian Housekeeping | Uniontown | Featured Business Friday

2017-02-08_0001 Hello! It's so great to have you on the blog! I want start by asking you to introduce yourself, what sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?

To be honest, I spend a lot of my leisure time working on the not-so-fun aspects of being self-employed. Making sure my schedule is correct, planning numbers, and lots of advertising. I also spend most of my time with my children. I am a single mom of three small children and one dog. :-) we love to go hiking, exploring new trails, and hanging out at the parks. We go to church Sunday mornings and Wednesday nights. My kids are also in ballet and karate so we do a lot of running around.

So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located?
I clean houses. :-) I love my job. I visit the same clients on a regular basis and some I've clean for quite a long time so I know them very 2017-02-08_0004well. I know the things they like, the things they dislike, how they like things done, and most importantly how I can go above and beyond for them. My job is to make it easier for parents to spend time with their children, hard workers to focus on their work, the elderly to have clean homes without the hard work, and dog owners enjoy being home without worrying about dog hair.
Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?
 There are two reasons why I chose this career path. The number one reason I chose to do what I do is my children. I have to be able to drop them off at school in the morning and pick them up after school, take them to all their extracurricular activities, be there for them when they're sick or when they need me to participate in school things. Everything I do, I do for my children. The second reason why I chose this work is to bless others. I want to make people's lives easier, do special things for them, and bless them with the valued time with their family that they otherwise miss out on taking care of things around the house. I am not perfect, I make mistakes, I forget things, but I try my absolute best and almost every time I leave a job, I'm very proud of my work. (Although, I always wish I could do more.)
Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work? 
I don't think I technically have a mission statement (yet) but my goal is to enable people to focus more on the important things in life rather than putting work into the house and doing housework and chores and the never-ending stuff around the house. In this day and age, we know it's more important to spend time with family. However, everyone wants their house to look presentable for one company might come over. It's difficult to accomplish both of those successfully. It's difficult to balance those things.
2017-02-08_0003
2017-02-08_0008Is there any ways in which your business gives back to the community? 
At this time, I donate 10% of profit to local churches or charitable organizations. I would love to have events that would help raise money for people who really need help or even for dogs. But hosting huge events like this and making them successful takes more than just one person. So that will be in the near future.

Makeup and Hair by Claire | Featured Business Friday | Uniontown, PA

2017-01-18_0003 Hey Claire! It's so great to have you as our first featured business on the blog! I want start by asking you to introduce yourself, what sorts of things do you enjoy doing with your leisure time?

First off, my name is Claire Basescu I was born and raised in Uniontown. I started in the beauty industry in 2012 and in January if 2016 I went off on my own as an independent stylist and makeup artist. As well as being in this industry I am also a full time college student majoring in teaching (prek-4 and dualing in special education). In the little free time I have I enjoy spending time with family and friends, working out, traveling and experiencing new things!

2017-01-18_0001

So tell us a little bit about what you do, the services you offer and where your located.

 I work out of Michael Politos Hair studio located at 37 S Beeson in Uniontown. At the salon I offer services including: Color, cut, wax, styling as well as natural and airbrush makeup. I also work as a freelance makeup and stylist going on location for weddings, proms and other special events!

2017-01-18_0004

Aside from purposes of income, why do you do what you do? What do you enjoy most about your work?

One of my favorite parts of doing what I do is making others feel great about themselves. Whether it be a new cut and color or their makeup on their wedding day, seeing their reaction when they see each other for the first time is truly priceless! I also enjoy the creativity of my job and how each and every client is different.

Do you have a mission statement, or to put it more simply, do you have a mission in general when you think about completing your work?

I strive for my clients to be 100% satisfied with all of their services!

2017-01-18_0002Is there any ways in which your business gives back to the community?

For the past year I have been an active member of FYPN (Fayette Young Professionals Network). I try to get involved in as many activities and fundraisers they have to offer. As well as being a member of FYPN, each year for prom I contact a local high school to ask if they have a student in mind who I could offer a free makeup and formal style for them for their prom night. I am always wanting to get more involved in the community and am always looking for ways I can give back more, any ideas are greatly appreciated!
