Meet Teresa Goertzen
A Cut Beyond owner and stylist Teresa Goertzen says her business is her “home away from home” and is a reflection of her. That’s why she works to make her guests’ experience a positive one, but notes that her clients make that effortless. “I feel like my customers are my extended family,” says Teresa. Living and working in a small town like Fraser Lake makes developing relationships easy and natural. “People in this town are caring,” she adds. “If there is a person in need this community gives their all to help them.”
Teresa started her business at a time when there were no other salons in Fraser Lake. Being a licensed stylist, she knew that she would have to start her own business if she wanted to continue her career and so she ventured into entrepreneurship. 15 years later she still loves her profession and thoroughly enjoys owning her own business. “I feel empowered as a woman to have a successful business. I enjoy setting my own schedule and being able to be flexible for my kids and my customers. I love seeing my business grow!”
Teresa relishes the fact that Fraser Lake is surrounded by nature and all of the outdoor recreational opportunities that come with it, like “the ability to go camping, boating, snowmobiling, horse riding, exercising outdoors right from your back door. Opportunities to be in nature are so easy here,” states Teresa. In fact, when she’s not working, Teresa can regularly be found outside, often on the back of horse. She also likes going tobogganing in winter and boating in summer.
