Garage Gear

It seems like clutter has a unique ability of accumulating very quickly and taking over entire rooms in no time at all, especially the garage.

If you have a garage full of “stuff” and you desire a clean and organized space, Garage Innovations could be your solution.

Owners Jason and Jennifer Johnson started Garage Innovations after they realized there was a need in the market for a garage organization company in Oklahoma.

Jason was looking online at different cabinet solutions to outfit his woodworking workshop when he realized Oklahoma lacked a solution for garage storage and organization. “Jason has always had that entrepreneurial spirit and had been looking into different opportunities,” said Jennifer.

“We are the only company in Oklahoma to offer complete turnkey solutions with multiple product lines,” Jennifer said. “We manufacture our own wood cabinet line, Simply Storage, utilizing state-of-the-art computer machining equipment. We are also the exclusive dealer of the Liquid Granite epoxy floor coating for Oklahoma.”

The family owned business opened its doors in March 2004 and is celebrating six years in business this month. “We have seen many garage organizational companies come and go in the last six years, but our over 1,500 customers can be assured we are here to stay,” Jennifer said.

The couple has faced many of the same challenges that nearly all business owners face. “You have issues like long hours, cash flow management, hiring the right employees and setting up a diverse product line,” Jennifer said. “We have learned a lot and through smart business decisions; we have tackled those challenges and welcome new ones.”

The Johnsons know they’ve done a great job when previous customers move into a new home or buy a vacation house and call Garage Innovations to outfit their new garage. “When we see or hear an ad for a house and the ad says ‘Garage outfitted by Garage Innovations,’ we think wow, they liked their garage so much they are using it as a
selling tool.”

If you are tired of a cluttered garage, it is time to call in the experts. Stop in to see Steve Lawson, manager of Garage Innovations at 7704 N. May Ave., or visit



 Behavior Solutions

Many parents who have raised children with behavioral problems know the strain it puts on families, marriages and relationships. Dr. Jonathan Roth of Edmond specializes in child behavioral issues and disorders. He’s a skilled professional with 25 years experience in pediatrics and is board certified.

“The people who see me are at their wits end,” says Dr. Roth. “It’s so gratifying to help people who have no hope, then figure out what’s going on and deliver that kind of care. According to Roth, developmental pediatrics is a relatively new field. “General practitioners aren’t educated in these types of developmental problems. They take a very good stab at it, but usually fall short because of their time limitations. People are finding that pediatrians are the first step, but there are specialized pediatrians to help further.”

Roth says he opened his own practice because he felt patients were too rushed when visiting the doctor and weren’t getting the proper amount of attention. He blocks off two hours for each consultation and schedules just one morning and one afternoon appointment.

“I really get to know the families and I’m available by phone and follow up with therapy recommendations,” Roth says. He’s even connected his office phone to his cell phone. “I want patients to get a hold of me. They have access to me 24 hours a day, seven days week.”
