Coss describes her career path as a continuous journey that has offered both challenge and fulfillment along the way. “My attraction at a young age to the beauty industry was for the instant self-satisfaction and immediate gratification of helping people look and feel fabulous,” she says. “As I quickly understood the depth and potential of the business itself, I knew that it was not just a job, but my lifelong career. It has taken me down many roads, those of education, sales and finally management with a manufacturer. When you can wake up every morning loving what you do as ‘work,’ it’s the ultimate dream.”
