Three highlights of your career:

  1.  I was working in Orange County as the general manager of 12 Fantastic Sam’s franchise salons. I was then asked to become the Fantastic Sam’s educator for all of San Diego, County in 1984.
  2. I was asked to join the Helene Curtis Company in 1988 as the Western Education Consultant. In this position I was able to travel the whole west coast and judged many hair events for different national companies. I also learned to work on a platform and teach many hairdressers at once.
  3. I was promoted to Sales and Education manager for Zotos International in 2006. It allowed me to mentor many hairdressers and educators in the industry.

Beauty legend you respect: Suzanne Chadwick. There are few icons in this industry that compare to what Suzanne has done. She was the first hairdresser that showed me what it was possible to achieve. She always demonstrates exceptional skill mixed with a uniqueness of passion and grace. She has been married to John for over 30 years and the two of them have traveled the world earning over 350 awards. Her soft-spoken manner makes you want to lean in and learn more!

Choose beauty because: A cosmetology degree fulfills dreams. And, you have the power to make people feel beautiful at a time of despair or a time of joy.

Quote or mantra: Live life with passion and give gratitude daily!
