It was 2009 and the country was caught up in a devastating economic downturn.
Four savvy professionals with many successful businesses decided to take a risk and venture into an industry new to them. Unfortunately, all did not progress as hoped.
Nonetheless, Kristy Murrow, a physician assistant, ex-school teacher and soldier bravely took over management as managing partner of Mariposa Medspa, the enterprise that had only been in operation for 18 months and had never made a profit. Before she could do so, however, she had to convince the owners to give her six months to turn things around instead of closing immediately as they’d planned.
Her gamble, and efforts, paid off. In less than four years Mariposa was making millions annually.
