The Rise & Thrive OSJ Radio 📻 Hour has “Gone to the Dogs” and we are just fine with that! Saturdays 9:05 a.m. on The Eagle, KZLS 1640AM or listen in on the OSJ app and website “Home Page” anytime! Guests in studio: Tracy Burch & Sylvia DeLeon, Owners of Groomer A Go Go Pet Market & Salon.

Tracy Burch & Sylvia DeLeon are Co-Owners of Groomer A Go Go Pet Market & Salon. Tracy is the head groomer in the Pet Salon & Mobile unit. Sylvia is the Pet Salon & Market Manger. They both run Groomer A Go Go with a higher standard that has built a reputation for them as a cut above all the rest. (All pun intended)

Both Tracy & Sylvia’s hearts have been in the rescue service of animals for as long as they both have lived. Tracy & Sylvia view the precious pet as the client and when a client comes in with their owner … The client and owner are individually shown the lay out of the salon that the dog/client will be go through during his or her spa treatment … much like how you and I are treated at our own salon appointments. The client is bathed, hand blow dried immediately after bathing and then hand delivered to the groomer. Once your pet (Groomer A Go Go’s client) has been placed in Sylvia or Tracy’s hands, they are followed through from start to finish and the owner is notified that their pet has completed their spa experience at Groomer A Go Go. A full service pet salon, healthy pet food, treats for dogs & cat foods along with some of the most unique pet accessories, I have ever laid my eyes & hands on. Oh & Yes, they now have the Pet CBD Oils & Treats that are a Natural Healthy approach for a myriad of pet issues. Groomer A Go Go is the only place my doggies (Tippy & Sadie) will ever go … which needs to be your family’s plan as well … You (I Promise) will be singing their praises as well. Visit their Facebook page here.

Guest in studio: Marilyn Olson, Executive Director of VillagesOKC

Marilyn Olson, a native of Oklahoma City, Marilyn Olson is an Educator, Businesswoman and Caregiver Coach.  She began as a teacher then spending a decade in advertising before spending more than 30 years in the healthcare, retirement, nursing home and assisted living industries.  Her passion is to be a help to the caregiver.

Her experience includes opening ten retirement communities several of which are in the greater Oklahoma City area. Most recently she accepted the position of Executive Director for VillagesOKC. “It is NOT a Place – It is a PLAN! 

As a member of the “over-fifty-five club” herself, she knows full well the demands of the sandwich generation.  Marilyn and her husband Jim keep their interests in multiple worlds by staying involved in the lives of her 102 year old mother along with, three grown children and ten grandchildren.

Her humorous yet practical style has made her a favorite of adults and teens.  She says the challenges of aging are nothing new “because we’ve made it through childhood, teen years and middle adult life – and it’s basically all the same.”

VillagesOKC –It is NOT a Place … It is a PLAN-VillagesOKC! What is It? AGAIN – It is a Plan … NOT a Place! We are going to Age but we do not have to be old! VillagesOKC is a group of like-minded people in a geographic area who stay in their own homes that come together to figure out and develop the resources they will need to age comfortably. The VillagesOKC Concept embraces bringing services to people rather than moving people to services. The first “Village” Concept  — Beacon Hill “Village” in Boston — began more than a decade ago when a few aging friends and neighbors joined forces to create a way for them to “age at home” and remain independent as long as possible. There are now nearly 300 “Villages” Concepts nationwide. “We are taking matters into our own hands and creating organizations for ourselves that essentially allow us to remain in our homes are as long as possible.”
