Tingley left a successful medical sales job to focus on her two daughters and faced numerous obstacles trying to enter into the workforce.

‘For me, it was really about turning the disapproval and rejection I had attempting to renter the workforce into a really positive thing, celebrating and honoring woman no matter where they are personally,” Tingley said.

‘The whole idea here is to provide a very dignified way for an animal to pass at home comfortably rather than being on a cold metal table in a veterinary office,’ Tingley said.

Jessica Muroff is the CEO of Girl Scouts of West Central Florida, serving more than 20,000 girls across the state.

‘What’s important here is she is teaching empowerment, confidence individuality and really celebrating girls at a young age,’ Muroff said.

Seminole Heights retailers look to go big on Small Business Saturday

SEMINOLE HEIGHTS ‘ A group of retailers along N Florida Ave. in South Seminole Heights have banded together to go big on Small Business Saturday.

Blind Tiger Cafe, Barks to Riches, Valhalla Women’s Boutique and Royal Suzie hope to use Saturday to expand their clientele.

‘This is the part of Seminole Heights that doesn’t get as much love, everything from Hillsborough (Avenue) and south, so we wanted to anchor the community institutions and help bring all the businesses together,’ said Blind Tiger Cafe owner Roberto Torres.

Torres, a Tampa Bay area business owner who has three Blind Tiger locations and is currently working on a fourth in Westchase, has helped pave the way for many of his neighboring businesses along the south end of N Florida Ave.
