Customer Highlight: Barb Luhr

To help celebrate #Smallbusinesssaturday this month, KOKOON is shining a spotlight on our community of clients and sales reps who walk the walk of being a smallbusiness owner! I’ve picked a few of my clients and hostesses to feature, who also happen to be small business owners.

Barb Luhr is part-owner and business manager of Piston & Rudder Service, Inc.Established in 1980, PRSI is a diversified marine maintenance company serving the needs of commercial and recreational boaters throughout SE Alaska. The daily operations include a marine machine shop, railway haul out and ship supply store, among many other services.

There is no doubt that Barbara has dedicated her life to her family and business, but it's her commitment to community service that truly shines. Recently her daughterBradee explained how Barb responded to the question of Santa Claus when she was a young girl. Barb carries this same philosophy throughout everything she does, all year long.

"My mom told me that Santa is real, but that he focuses his help on the kids that need him most, so she did his job for our household, and that we all can play Santa by giving to families in need for Christmas. I still believe it. Santa is real, santa is more than one person."

Thank You for all you do Barb!❤️
