Dr. James Doyle and Dr. Kelly Baete met when they were both studying at Purdue School of Veterinary Medicine. Later, they showed up at the same wedding venue to tie the knot, and then the same Fort Mill veterinary clinic to start a practice. Dr. Doyle specializes in surgical and orthopedic procedures, utilizing everything from scalpels to radio waves in his quest to treat internal ailments. Meanwhile, Dr. Baete focuses on preventative medicine, educating her clients on how best to care for their pets and minimize future trips to her office.
Together, the two relentlessly strive to improve the welfare of their community's creatures—even offering free spay and neuter services for pets rescued from the Humane Society of York County. In order to make visits as easy as possible, their clinic boasts a playroom to entertain children while their parents discuss the serious business of pet care or the less serious business of clown accounting.
At ClayEscape, hundreds of blank clay pieces line the walls, waiting for a new life in someone?s garden, kitchen, or dining room. Instructors help visitors pick the piece that best suits their artistic intention, and then painters go to work selecting from more than 90 paint colors and 68 specialty glazes with which to decorate their pottery. Stencils, stamps, and sponges help fuel the artistic process. One week later, pieces emerge shiny and brilliant, ready to take home. ClayEscape also hosts private parties for events such as birthdays, bridal showers, Girl Scouts, and lady's nights, and it also holds special events for holidays such as Mother's Day. Summer camps are also available.

At Club K-9 of Charlotte’s two locations, more than 30,000 square feet of space sprawls out for pups to tucker themselves out while their families work or travel out of town. Owner J.P. Brewer and her first-aid- and CPR-certified staff maintain a safe, clean environment where four-legged friends can have fun, exercise, and improve their social skills with little to no anxiety. During doggie daycare, the staff separates dogs by age, size, and temperament and supervises the centers’ indoor and outdoor play areas. Overnight boarding guests enjoy some of the same amenities found in hotels for humans, such as climate-controlled suites with elevated beds, quiet music, and dimmed lights. The Club K-9 team also pet-sits and performs dog-grooming services.
If you met Patrice Gaines when she was 21 years old, you may not have guessed that she'd later become a bestselling author and successful journalist. That's because she slipped into a negative lifestyle as a young woman, eventually winding up in a Charlotte jail. But she managed to turn it all around, penning two books and publishing work in Essence and The New York Times.
Today, Patrice can often be found mentoring incarcerated women at the same jail where she was held in 1970 or helping students find their own voices through writing fiction and nonfiction. She coaches students by phone and occasionally in person at her home in Lake Wylie, South Carolina.
