Three highlights of your career:
- Being an educator, nothing is more rewarding then the moment a student has an aah haa moment and truly understands what they are doing and why.

Beauty legened you respect: Vivienne Mackinder. She has made her mark in the beauty industry by "not being just a hairdresser." She has accomplished much through hard work and consistency. I recently had the pleasure of meeting Ms. Mackinder in person at the Cosmetology Educator’s Association meeting in Scottsdale, Arizona. She has inspired me to challenge myself daily and if I don't get the results I expect then to keep working on them until I do.
Choose beauty because: You become empowered with a sense of artistry.
