Salon Career Path: All Things Beauty
Salon Career Path: All Things Beauty


Services District Educator, Chicago

Years with Ulta Beauty: 6

Career journey: My experience at Ulta Beauty has been extensive and varied. I first worked as a Beauty Advisor and Prestige Advisor, recommending products and treatments and guiding guests. I took advantage of Ulta’s exclusive relationship with Browbar and became an Arch Expert, and also supported the salon as a guest coordinator. I worked my way up to Prestige Manager, then Salon Manager and currently work as a Services District Educator.

My career at Ulta Beauty has given me flexibility to transfer to multiple states and to explore multiple roles. I became a Mizani TEXpert and a Redken Certified Haircolorist. I’ve had chances to be heavily involved with community and giving back through Ulta Beauty, with initiatives like Dress for Success, and participating in Ulta Pride Fest in Chicago, grand openings and other special events. At Ulta Beauty, the possibilities are beautiful, and endless, too.
