Our Story…

Lice Clinics of America Northern Iowa, started in January 2018 with our first clinic opening in Dubuque, IA. Owners/sisters, Bess Hayes and Kellie Hancock were dealing with head lice on their very own children, and they were at their wits end. There were a lot of tears, stress, and late-night nit picking. After 4 months of trying every over the counter, and every home remedy, someone finally approached them with the Lice Clinics of America a “one-and-done” treatment option. Too good to be true, they did their research and decided that every town, and every parent needed to know such a place existed. Just realizing how much stress this would have saved for their entire families. After 7 months of having their first clinic open the sisters decided it was time to open a second clinic in Des Moines, IA.

Bess currently resides in Dubuque. She has called Dubuque home for the past 29 years. She has a significant other of 12 years and they have an 11 year old son, and soon to be a daughter coming this July. She enjoys family, friends, traveling, and music. In her free time she likes to play volleyball, be artsy, and go camping. Prior to opening up Lice Clinics of America, Bess worked at Medline for 10 years.

Kellie hasn’t lived in Dubuque for quite as many years as Bess but she has called Dubuque home for the past 27 years. Kellie is married and has 3 daughters, that keep her very busy. When Kellie has free time, she likes to be with her family and friends. She enjoys doing anything outdoors when the weather is warm. Kellie graduated from Kirkwood Community College in 2009 with her Surgical Technology degree. She worked at Mercy Hospital in Dubuque, for 10 years before beginning the journey of the Lice Clinics with Bess.

Bess and Kellie can guarantee that you will enjoy your experience at the Lice Clinics of America in Northern Iowa. They know the pain of what you are going through and they will truly make the lousy situation a whole lot better.
