Over My Head was opened in 1998 in Upper Arlington as a beautiful space to help women look and feel a little more normal
when they need it the most. Bethany Golden purchased Over My Head in January 2007 after being inspired by her mother,
Bonnie Ritchie, who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2002. The boutique has evolved tremendously and is now located in
The Bing Cancer Center at Riverside Hospital. Bethany continues the same tradition of excellence of headwear and has added
Rachel Brown, CFm to her team of post-cancer specialists.

The ladies at Over My Head pride themselves in carrying the newest and best technology in hair alternatives, post-breast
surgical products and fashionable yet functional merchandise. They offer a licensed salon room in which volunteer barbers or
cosmetologists can provide head shaving services. Over My Head works very closely with many surgeons and oncology offices
in order to achieve the best benefits for their patients. The boutique is a Medicare certified, American Board of Certification
accredited facility and network contracted with all major medical insurance companies.

Meet Bethany Golden


Bethany graduated from The Ohio State University with a Bachelor of Science
in Textiles and Clothing in 2002. While in college, she specialized in designing
fashionable and functional dresses, lingerie and swimwear for mastectomy
patients. Bethany's mom, Bonnie Ritchie, was diagnosed with breast cancer
at the age of 39 and underwent a bilateral mastectomy. Although her mom
handled her life and cancer with dignity and grace, it was very difficult.

Bethany saw room for great improvement in cancer aesthetics. Bethany bought
Over My Head January 1st, 2007. After moving the boutique to The Bing Cancer
Center, Bethany became a Certified Mastectomy Fitter in September 2013.
Bethany specializes in medical hair-loss, fitting wigs and hairpieces.
