Patti Gage

(from the Wise County Messenger)

It is said when you do what you love, you never work a day in your life. And that describes Patti to a T. She loves her chosen career and has been making people feel good about themselves for 33 years.

Patti has been community-minded all her life, always giving back to those she serves. A past Decatur Citizen of the Year, she is known for her generosity, and that commitment to community is shared by her staff. The salon hosts fund-raisers for worthwhile causes throughout the year and is always reaching out in the spirit of giving, helping those in need. Even Patti's love of fishing in Brazil has evolved into "Patti's mission work." She takes needed items to the villagers where she fishes and provides free haircuts.
