Equi-First Aid Illinois - 7/12/2021 847-809-9413 https://www.facebook.com/equinefirstaidillinois Equi-First Aid Illinois was established in August of 2020 by Michele Dvorak. It is an educational organization dedicated to teaching basic horse health and first aid to horse owners and horse lovers alike. While most of the classes are held at a local, Kingston, barn, I do travel to other facilities and would be happy to visit yours! I provide lunch, snacks and all the supplies necessary for learning. Attendees receive a reference manual to keep and a certificate of course completion. In addition to Basic First Aid, I'm qualified to teach Advanced First Aid and I Can Help-Horse First Aid for Kids. When at my barn, I use my own horse, Reine, for teaching. She and I have been through Basic and Advanced Mounted Police Despooking Training, where Reine performed admirably. Moreover, I have been a GATHER member for a couple of years now and enjoy my time meeting these ladies and working events through the Chamber.

I started the business out of the need to find relief for my son's eczema. He was 4 months old at the time and covered in it. After two months of seeing the doctor every two weeks, The doctor recommended a bleach bath. I couldn't do it. Instead, I went home and started doing research. This was in 2007. Just a year after being honorably discharged from the Army. I am a combat veteran. I started formulating products and putting my skills to the test and was met with rave reviews and even featured in Ease Magazine out of Seguin, TX May 2014. Since then, We had three more children, and have moved back To Illinois. I went back to school earning my associate degree with Honors in Applied sciences in complementary Alternative medicine. I am currently working on my Bachelor's degree. My specialization in both degrees is Medical Phytotherapy. I launched my Apothecary and wellness center as an LLC Jan 5, 2021. With the hopes of acquiring a storefront within the next two years. I am currently running the business off my homestead. I offer a variety of products, services, and educational classes. I am a mother of four and run a homestead. I am looking forward to being part of an amazing community!

With the turn of the New Year comes a momentous 50th anniversary for Theisen Roofing & Siding Co., Inc. In 1971, founder Raymond (Ray) Theisen established his roofing business after branching out from working with his father, Mr. Harry M. Theisen who at the time owned Malcor Roofing Company in Aurora, IL. Ray, along with several of his brothers, worked under Harry who became a partner of Mr. G. C. Malcor's Roofing Company in 1929. Ray's new venture started off as a solo job, relying upon a used pickup truck and his hand tools. In the early days, a shop was set up in roughly 1,000 square feet of warehouse space on the East end of Lincoln Highway in DeKalb. A decade later, Ray purchased a larger, more permanent location on Pleasant Street, which served as the iconic office and warehouse for Theisen Roofing for roughly three decades. With business continuing to expand, Theisen Roofing again moved in 2016 and is now located in Cortland, where their 20,000 square feet facility allows them the ability to keep growing. For fifty years, Theisen Roofing has been a household name in DeKalb and surrounding communities. Known for their quality craftsmanship in residential roofing, siding, and seamless gutters, the 3rd generation company is still running strong in offering the highest quality products the industry offers with impeccable service. Today, Theisen Roofing is still family owned and operated under the leadership of Ray's sons, Jeff (who joined the company in 1978) and Brian (who joined the company in 1989) along with Ray's youngest grandson, Eric, who has been with the company since 2010. Theisen Roofing has been proud to serve the community for fifty years and looks forward to continuing the tradition of providing quality, professional service.
