Thanks Is Not Enough
Dear Emily –

I wanted to write to thank you for EVERYTHING that you did for our family yesterday.

You came in less than 2 hours from our call. You treated our issue. You educated us.You showed us how to maintain treatment and prevent future infestation. You reviewed how we should clean our home and personal items to ensure complete control of the issue.

Not only did you provide these professional, high quality services, but you were warm, kind, respectful, and most of all, you put us at ease when we were so very stressed and upset. You were wonderful and patient with our little daughter. I am not sure “thanks” is enough, but please accept our most heartfelt. A Drexel Hill, PA Family

Lice Treatment Specialist Emily Betterly

Hello my name is Emily Betterly. I was born and raised in Cherry Hill, NJ and presently live in Plymouth Meeting, PA. I have taken many turns before becoming a nitpicker. I went to college for environmental science and worked in the hazardous waste industry for many years before starting a family (all good back ground for the head lice biz wouldn’t you say?!) Once my children entered elementary school it was time to help support the family. At the same time, M.J. Eckert, my college roommate, was starting Lice Happens.

I am not sure it was divine intervention or just bad luck but my daughter contracted lice 3 months after the creation of the company! I drove 2 hours to Annapolis for M.J. to rid my daughter of the pesky little critters and while there thought to myself,“ I would be really good at this.” After many weeks of training, I started helping families in South Jersey and the Philadelphia metropolitan area.

It has been 6 wonderful years helping families beat the bugs! What I like most about this job is walking into a home full of stress and anxiety and then walking out of the home knowing that mom will have a good night’s sleep and life will go back to normal. I have also enjoyed building a great team of lice specialists that are out in the field everyday educating families to be lice experts!


Lice Treatment Specialist Wynn

I have never felt like a “hero” in a job before until working for Lice Happens. There is something extremely gratifying about swooping into homes to save the day and leaving the families with knowledge and empowerment to handle a little parasite which can cause such a disruption in everyday life. I am so happy to be helping families in the Philadelphia community.


Lice Treatment Specialist Linda

It is very rewarding, as I am teaching and encouraging these families, to see their anxiety melt away. I love talking with the children- they sometimes ask the best questions! I am so happy that Lice Happens can help the families throughout Philadelphia, and I am so thankful to be part of a great team of specialists.


Lice Treatment Specialist Renee

As a Lice Happens Lice Treatment Specialist, I feel good providing a safe, pesticide-free alternative to families that have already used over-the-counter or prescription products and are reluctant to throw more chemicals on their child’s head because they haven’t been able to eliminate the infestation.

The thorough training I received allows me to efficiently treat families and educate parents, leaving them empowered and free of worry.
