Owner Shakeita Price cut the ribbon. Joining in the celebration and showing their support were chamber ambassadors, family and friends.

Price Professional Services provides credit consultations, resume building, notary services, career coaching, small business start-up, business credit, 501 C3 applications and more.
Price said she started out writing resumes to supplement her income while in graduate school. As she added other services, Price decided to open her own business.
Price also is a licensed mental health counselor with a private practice, and she is a mortgage loan officer.
She is a veteran of the United States Armed Forces. She served six years in the Army National Guard.
A native of Lamar, Price is an honor graduate of Wilson High School. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in political science from Coastal Carolina University. She furthered her education and pursued her Master's degree in social work from the University of South Carolina.
Her passion for youth motivated her to start a nonprofit organization, "Ladies Divine To Shine," which is a mentoring program that offers guidance to young girls between the ages of 12 and 18.
The organization has been actively engaging the youth in the Pee Dee area for the past five years. Price said her ultimate goal is to help youth cultivate their leadership skills, reach positive academic and career goals and promote societal change within their communities.
Price said her daughter, Amina, is her motivation to continue to move forward.
