Serving Its Students and Community Well

Rivertown School of Beauty, Barber, Skin Care, and Nails started small and has grown in its course certifications over the past few decades. Emphasis is given to how this school has grown from its founding focus on success and top performance in the industry, and how these two factors benefit the community by equipping a diverse student body in the trades. Columbus is where Rivertown School of Beauty, Barber, Skin Care, and Nails has grown proficient in all the trades included in its name. Over the school’s 40 years of operation, the staff and students of Rivertown have earned the titles of cosmetology, barber, skincare, and nail professional by staying committed to teaching the best curriculum, remaining inclusive, and always making their services available to their loyal clients. The school trains experts and has

Trade / Technical School

expanded its offerings since its opening. As a result, the staff and students at Rivertown School know their city and what its diverse community values in beauty and expanded learning opportunities.

The company’s founding principle states “Success is our product.” This idea came to the school’s founder, the late Bobbie Dahl and has been the guiding principle for Rivertown since she thought of it in 1996.

“Success as the product” has helped the school positively

connect with clients and students so it’s here to stay.

The students study knowing that Rivertown is fully accredited through the Council on Occupational Education, and it benefits from financial assistance programs from the Department of Education, thus financial aid is available to make an education possible for more people.

Additionally, the quality of the well-honed curriculum is prestigious, and it paves a path to certification and a strong resume after graduation. These factors support students toward course completion with the school’s goal of each graduate achieving state licensing and gaining maximized professional opportunities in their chosen field. A representative from the school outlined some statistics on the programs and growth.

“Our largest program is currently Esthetics, with it


having the highest enrollment for classes and applications,” said Jennifer Jones, the school’s owner and chief administrative officer. The student demand for skincare certification has increased in the past five years and will “continue to grow at 17% from 2019-2029 based on the Bureau of Labor Statistics. We believe the reason for this demand can be greatly attributed to the excellent job outlook for skincare specialists in this day and time,” she added.

She also outlined the history of the school’s programs and curriculum development. Rivertown began in 1996 with the cosmetology and cosmetology Instructor programs, with the esthetician program following in 2000. “Crossover” programs such as barber, and barber Instructor came along in 2002. Shortly thereafter, in 2003, Rivertown was approved to offer the nail technician and refresher courses. The nail-instructor program was the last program

approved in 2005.

Not only do Rivertown’s students benefit from its commitment to their wellrounded training and development, they also are enriched by the school’s continued focus on inclusion and meeting clients’ and students’ personal needs.

community then benefits from a wide range of talent being honed and expressed in the industry around Columbus and beyond.

This school stays up to date with the educational materials and sharing of ideas via its local Civil Rights website. These materials and conversations are often moved to Rivertown’s staff meetings. Since the school has been in operation for 40 years, it has always focused on progress in providing equal opportunities for learning and serving the diverse population’s varied beauty needs.

Students who are equipped with Rivertown’s graduate program find careers that offer flexibility, creativity, and financial security. These three benefits motivate Rivertown to keep fostering a diverse student body because the

Over the years, Rivertown has seen how “[its] clients and students are positively impacted by being offered not just one, but several options when it comes to services and programs of study,” Jones said.

Essentially, the Rivertown school has known since the beginning that if the community is diverse, then its education and offerings should be, too.

Founded in Columbus, Georgia over a decade ago, NEXus Pain Center has established itself as a distinguished healthcare organization strongly rooted “in the Valley” providing superior evidence-based care and patient centric solutions. Focusing on spine conditions, NEXus Pain Center provides an array of service offerings to help alleviate and treat most pain-related conditions. Their team consists of seven board certified pain management physicians and four nurse practitioners.

Dealing with chronic pain can be very stressful – both physically and mentally. Dedicated pain management facilities like NEXus Pain Center provide valuable

resources for sufferers. Dr. Jeffrey Prinsell Jr explains that their mission is to optimize function and improve quality of life through multimodal pain management services.

Help Patients LIVE MORE Fulfilling Lives

NEXus specializes in managing various conditions throughout the body, including neck and back pain,

nerve-related conditions, joint ailments, migraines, and more. As an interventionalbased practice, they offer minimally invasive procedures to help patients experience improvement. Most procedures and treatment options are covered by insurance.

To receive NEXus’ services, patients need a referral from a physician such as a general practitioner, physical therapist, chiropractor, or surgeon . Dr. Sung Chang ensures conservative measures such as over-thecounter medication, yoga, pilates, physical therapy, and imaging ar explored before recommending any procedures.

NEXus Pain Center offers over 30 procedures designed to address pain at


its sources, including spinal cord stimulation implants, epidural injections, radiofrequency ablations, botox for migraines, and joint injections. Joint injections take place at the clinic, while spinal procedures occur at the North Columbus Ambulatory Surgery Center. The North Columbus Ambulatory Surgery Center (NCSC) provides sedation assistance through their team of CRNAs. They utilize a fluoroscopy machine for X-ray-guided monitoring during spinal injections, ensuring patient safety. A dedicated team of healthcare professionals, including LPNs, RNs, MDs, CRNAs, Radiology and Surgical Technicians, supports patients throughout the process. All NCSC procedures allow patients to return home on the same day, and the facility maintains AAAHC accreditation for safe patient care.

NEXus Pain Center aims to improve patients’ ability to stay active and lead fulfilling lives. During office visits, patients discuss pain levels, procedure responses, medications, and updated imaging. Dr. Hares Akbary highlights that educational pamphlets are provided to patients for recommended procedures. Regardless of the type or onset of chronic pain, NEXus Pain Center offers an alternative to medication or surgery, providing pain relief, increased participation in family activities, and improved sleep. “We are committed to helping you find the right treatment plan that will work for you,” said Dr. Takia Oglesby. They have expanded their services across Georgia, with locations in LaGrange, Fayetteville, Newnan, and McDonough. Patients can visit their website at www.nexuspaincenter.com for more information.
