PORTLAND, Ore. (KOIN) — A local skin care studio owner is getting innovative to safeguard practitioners and their clients amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Kathleen Boniface created a protective acrylic barrier to be able to return to work safely and hopes it might help others do the same.

“There was no way I was going to go back to work if I didn’t have something that was made me feel safe and my guests feel safe,” Boniface said.

“I love the design and the honed edges, the way it fits together so perfectly. It’s also really easy to take apart for cleaning,” Boniface said as she showcased her the final product. “The BAB has a slanted high back … and I can have full access. My arms can come all the way down. I can use my different implements that reach down inside very easily.”
