“I stay loyal to the original owner, Joshua Martin. I trained under him for 12 years and after his passing, I didn’t want to be anywhere else. This is my second home. It’s got a great atmosphere, it’s surrounded by wonderful people, and it’s spacious. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I LOVE Bella.”
