Saran Nurse, MBA Entrepreneur
Founder & CEO, Kiki’s Pet Spa & Boutique
Saran Nurse is a QC alumna who migrated from Guyana to attend Florida International University in Miami, Florida. She graduated cum laude with a double major in Marketing and International Business and after a two year stint as an Associate Buyer at Federated Department Stores, returned to complete her graduate education in business. She graduated from Georgetown University with a Master of Business administration. Upon graduation from business school she was recruited by American Express where she worked in the Consumer Card marketing group and Small Business Services divisions. As with many people in corporate America, she grew restless and wanted more independence and control but most of all she yearned to do something she was more passionate about. Following this desire, she entered the entrepreneurial world, conceiving the idea of Kiki pet Spa & Boutique where a pet owner can have all pet care needs fulfilled under one roof. Kiki’s pet Spa & Boutique opened its first location in 2003 and now has three locations in Brooklyn, New York with a fourth slated to be opened the beginning of 2016.
