MILESTONESUS Nails in Endicott Plaza in Danvers celebrates three years of ownership by the Le family of Beverly. Manager Kelly Le proudly recalls the story of a tight-knit family that emigrated from Vietnam 33 years ago. Her parents and four siblings all reside in Beverly and are involved in both US Nails and Coco Nails in the Liberty Tree Mall for the last five years.

Le worked in the medical supply industry for 19 years and part-time in the nail business while raising her family and building a company. Her parents helped raise her four children — three daughters now in college and a son who works in an unrelated field — which she says is her proudest accomplishment.
