Some of us try to ignore them. Others just don’t know what to do with them. They can be as soft as a baby’s bottom. They can be rough and howl at night.
Our feet.
Two Elgin-area women have teamed up to provide a much-needed foot and nail care service, whether you just want to be pampered or your health is an issue. Their name says it all, Treat Your Feet.
Registered Nurses Tami Schrage and Kristin Zegers saw a need and decided to stick their feet in the door. While continuing their nursing duties at Antelope Memorial Hospital in Neligh, they felt that they could make a difference to an underserved clientele.
