           Appeal from the Iowa District Court for Polk County, Jeanie K. Vaudt, Judge.  REVERSED AND REMANDED.  Considered by Potterfield, P.J., and Bower and McDonald, JJ.  Opinion by Potterfield, P.J. (6 pages)

           Ashley Van Zetten appeals the district court’s dismissal of her petition for judicial review for failing to serve the Iowa Board of Cosmetology Arts and Sciences within the ten-day window required by Iowa Code section 17A.19(2) (2015).  OPINION HOLDS: Because Van Zetten substantially complied with the requirements of section 17A.19(2), the district court erred in granting the board’s motion to dismiss.  We reverse the district court’s ruling and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion.
