Congratulations to our 2023 Gold Probe Award Winner Ms. Tracie Disher, CPE!!
Ms. Disher was the first electrologist in Indiana to work for a doctor. In 1985 electrologists had to be located in beauty shops - she changed that! Today several Indiana dermatologists employ electrologists. Electrologists can also now have private clinics such as hers. She left the Dermatology Clinic of Muncie, Inc. to open Muncie Electrology Clinic (MEC) in 1991 to allow my patients more flexible hours.
Ms. Disher also instigated, then chaired, the committee for the Indiana Professional Licensing Agency for Cosmetology Examiners (State Board) that wrote the current electrology school rules and regulations. She remains available for counsel with the state board. Indiana began requiring continuing education (CEU) to remain licensed and Ms. Disher assisted in making the Indiana Electrolysis Association meetings count toward this new requirement.
Ms. Disher was the Indiana Electrolysis Association newsletter editor for two years and president for four years. During her presidency she set up the association's education programs to meet the national continuing education requirements.
Ms. Disher has written two electrology brochures that have been used to educate people in my area about electrolysis and other forms of hair removal. Her "Why does it have to grow there?" brochure has been distributed to over 10,000 people just like you!
Not only is Ms. Disher successful in her career, she has been an active part of the American Electrology Association for many years, giving back to the community with her hard work and dedication.
Her dedication to electrology has always been "Mah-velous"!
