Cathy began her career in Massachusetts over 30 years ago as a “shampoo girl”. Tasks grew to include just about everything other than cutting. So years later, after the last of her four children began school, returning to school herself was only natural. Cathy loves the beauty industry, continuing her education at every opportunity. She especially loves multidimensional foiling, and working with natural, curly hair. By opening Tranquility, her hope from the beginning was to create a comfortable setting for an unforgettable experience. As a business owner downtown, she is a member of the Exeter Area Chamber, HERON, and the Exeter Rotary. When not in the salon, she can often be found doing volunteer work within the Exeter community. And when time allows, she enjoys spending time with her husband, Wayne, or just reading, usually with a dog by her side. Cathy is currently not taking on any new hair clients.
