Gale is a former New Jersey police officer with a criminal justice degree. After departing from police work, she law clerked for a judge for four years. However, deciding against a career as an attorney, she did continue to work as a certified paralegal for 10 years.
As Mark Weston’s business partner and significant other, Gale brings a diversified background to the business. Ms. Hartvigsen co-founded the Artistry Concepts Hair Replication Center, and manages it’s administrative, marketing and customer service duties.
Gale excels at research and development of new and unusual business concepts, and was responsible for Artistry Concepts’ highly successful merging of two separate and distinct services in 2007–fine art tattooing and permanent cosmetics. With Mark’s extensive talents and experience in all forms of tattooing, she then expanded Artistry Concepts into the field of scalp pigmentation exclusively in mid-2009. Gale is the webmaster for all the Artistry Concepts’ websites, and can answer any questions you may have regarding the ACHM2® and ACHM2.5 . She is also the photographer for all those high-resolution photos in the ACHM2® and ACHM2.5 Gallery.
Gale has been directly involved with all phases of the ACHM2® and ACHM2.5, with the exception of the actual physical application. Handling all the preliminary documents and applications for the Artistry Concepts’ ACHM2® needle patent and all ACHM2® trademarks, she works directly with Artistry Concepts’ retained intellectual property counsel. Keeping on top of filing copyright updates for the website’s text content and photos, she also keeps an eye out for any copyright and trademark infringements which are promptly referred to counsel.
