I’ve been a cosmetologist for 7 years now and my love for the industry grows even more now that I’m teaching. I’ve taken many Redken classes, as well as Pravana and Framesi. I love making people feel better about themselves, it’s why I love what I do. Being able to teach that ability to others is truly rewarding. This industry is always changing and you’re always learning something new and different and it’s amazing how the students give back as much as you give them.
I’m an instructor at Redken International Academy Of Style. I have grown up in the industry all my life so becoming at Aesthetician came naturally to me. I have been to several classes including Dermalogica and PCA. I strive to be a great teacher. I fill the classroom with a fun and exciting learning atmosphere.
I went to Redken international academy of style for cosmetology and later came back to be an instructor. I have now been an instructor for 2 years and in the salon for almost 5 years. I focus on continuing education and have completed product and technique courses through Redken, Pureology, Sexy Hair, Pravana, Framesi, along with additional hands on cutting/coloring/styling classes.
I was born in Reno, NV and I am married with three wonderful children and two beautiful grandchildren. I have been a licensed cosmetologist for 30 years and I am very passionate about my work. I have always loved hair since a young age, growing up in the environment and learning from my Mother and my Aunt. I have been instructing at Redken International Academy of Style for nine years. As an instructor I encourage students to work their hardest and learn how rewarding this business can be. Some of my talents include being a Master Color Specialist and I have worked with; Toko Magico, J. Beverly Hills, Wella, Dermalogica, and PCA. I am proud to be in this business and have earned so much from this career.
This is a little bit about myself, I was born in Reno, NV and am married with two children. I decided to go to Cosmetology school because I always wanted to do hair. I was drawn to it at a young age and have been around it my whole life. My mother, Aunt and Grandmother are all cosmetologists. I have now been licensed for 8 years and instructing for 4 years. It is one the most rewarding jobs I have ever had. Making people beautiful and having them leave with a smile when I’m done. As far as teaching, working with all of the students is so much fun. I love giving them all of my knowledge. I have learned more working here than anywhere I have worked before. They challenge me every day. I Have been to countless classes including Redken, Dermalogica, PCA, and many others. I continue to grow as I further my career. This is not just a job, it is a lifestyle.
I’ve always had a passion for Cosmetology; hair is in the spelling of my name. I became an Instructor because there weren’t a lot of avenues for Ethnic Hairstyling for Students and hence I found my niche. I’m well rounded in colors, cuts, nails, skin and the artistry of braids, extensions and dreads. I enjoy sharing the knowledge of our industry to others using an unorthodox approach.
I have been a licensed Aesthetician for 20 years and a licensed Instructor of Aesthetics for 4 years. I owned my own salon for several years and decided that I wanted to share my knowledge and become an Instructor of Aesthetics. After attending all of Dermalogica’s classes and being certified, I wanted to take more classes. I became certified in eyelash extensions and an expert with Lira products. I enjoy teaching because the knowledge that I have in this field is not matched at any Northern Nevada schools and it is a joy to share it with my students.
