From A Registered Nurse to Small Business Owner

By Shop Pike Road

In the fast-paced world of healthcare, Meagan Jucknies stood resolute as a registered nurse, navigating through the highs and lows of her profession. However, as her children started school, Meagan began to realize that a full-time career might not be the best fit for her family. She longed to be present for field trips and class parties. Thus, the summer of 2022 marked a turning point in her life as she made the courageous decision to pursue a different path. With the support of a fellow Sugarista, Hillary Wyatt, Meagan embarked on a new journey, delving into the world of Sugared., a salon specializing in hair removal using sugar paste.

Meagan’s decision to venture into Sugared. was fueled by her desire for a flexible schedule that allowed her to prioritize her family without compromising her career. After working three jobs simultaneously and experiencing the challenges of overwork and burnout, she took the plunge and never looked back. By providing unwanted hair removal using sugar paste instead of traditional wax, Meagan aims to offer her clients a holistic experience that extends beyond hair removal. She strives to make every woman feel comfortable and confident in their own skin.

At Sugared., Meagan’s clients are welcomed into a warm and inviting atmosphere, where they can unwind and feel at ease.

Many clients find themselves pleasantly surprised by how quickly they feel a connection with her. Meagan believes that hair removal is not just a cosmetic procedure but an opportunity for a therapeutic conversation. As a result, her clients often leave feeling like they have caught up with an old friend, knowing that Meagan genuinely cares about their overall well-being.

In 2021, Meagan and her family moved to Pike Road, a charming town that they instantly fell in love with. They relish the small-town feel and the strong sense of community that permeates every aspect of life in Pike Road. Meagan is particularly appreciative of the support she receives from the Pike Road Mamas, a community of like-minded individuals who uplift and motivate one another. Through their encouragement and camaraderie, Meagan has found her own little group of cheerleaders.

Meagan’s ultimate goal is to empower women, helping them feel comfortable and confident in their own skin. She believes that true beauty lies within and that all women are uniquely and perfectly made.
