Scott has over 25 years of business experience in the Southern California region and holds a Masters of Business Degree (MBA) from California State University, Fullerton and a BS Degree with a triple concentration in Banking, Finance, and Real Estate from San Francisco State University.

In 2015, Marla and their three children all had lice at the same time.  Marla sent Scott to the local CVS and bought product full of chemicals that did not work.   All four still had lice after two frustrating weeks and Marla wondered if our family with her 20 years of medical experience was having such a challenge treating lice what do other families go through?  We were determined to find a better, chemical free way to treat lice.   Our Los Alamitos and Torrance clinics opened in August 2015 as Lice Clinics of America Los Alamitos and Lice Clinics of America South Bay.  In 2019 we left the Lice Clinics of America franchise and rebranded as Los Alamitos Lice Removal and Torrance Lice Removal.   We made the difficult decision to close down our Los Alamitos clinic in March, 2020 as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and so we could focus all of our time and efforts on our Torrance location.

Since our humble beginnings in 2015, we have successfully head screened or treated over 50,000 people representing over 850 different schools and 69 different cities throughout Southern California.   We view ourselves as an Emergency Room for head lice. Our mission is to turn what can be a very stressful event into a pleasant family experience that is actually enjoyable and the standard of care for head lice treatment.

We support the communities we serve through lice education, lice head screening, lice treatment, community involvement, and donations of our services back to the communities we serve.

We exist to make a difference in the world. We allow children, parents, and families in our community to have their lice infestation solved right away and to sleep well at night.

We provide a clinically proven, evidence based service that is chemical free, stress free, and that can end your lice infestation in about 1 hour so you can get back to your lives.

Lice never happens at a good time and no one every wants it but we are here as a head lice resource for your family when needed.
