BILLINGS, MT -- Jennifer Tipton is a model of tenacity both for her work as an entrepreneur and previous career as an equine (horse) dentist. For years she bonded with animals, observing their behaviors, and understanding some of their natural grooming tendencies. She noted what felt good and comfortable and also what tugged, itched, or prickled during grooming times. It led her to develop an innovative grooming tool that can make any type of curly, shaggy, wiry, or horribly long coat neater and sleeker. Because it performs so quickly and simply, she worked the  word easy into its name – SleekEZ.

In 2018, Jennifer’s SleekEZ (www.sleekEZ.com), became one of the top selling products on Amazon. But the journey of this specially bladed and toothed comb was long and hard, including personal battles with early stakeholders, resistance from patent attorneys, and rip offs by certain marketers and distributors. Jennifer launched the fledgling company with her own money and has since become an expert at living simply (instead of with extensive debt.) She even bought her last home for all cash.

Jennifer is a true animal lover and has always lived with a 4-legged family. For many years she was situated in Billings Montana. Most recently she has been living “off the grid” in a 40’ trailer with acres of land around her. She has 6 horses and 6 dogs with her, one of them just turned 14. Jennifer says the dogs are her eyes and ears in a remote area akin to the Wild West of US past. The animals also enjoy their property in the Northeast corner of Nevada which includes a creek that runs into a mysterious underground river. And that is just the tip of the phenomena around her.
