My love of makeup started around 10th grade. From there it just became something I did for my friends just for fun. Fast forward to my modeling days after college when I needed to show up ready to walk or having to do my own makeup due to a shortage of time with the artists available. It wasn't until I was given the opportunity to do my cousins' makeup for her wedding that I realized it was something that I loved doing and I wanted to pursue it more aggressively. From there, I began taking classes and building my kit.
My start as an esthetician began when I noticed several working makeup artists going to school for their esthetics license even though they already had a stable flow of clientele. I believed that by becoming a licensed esthetician, I would have a better understanding of the skin and could add on to my current services.I attended Rowan Cabarrus Community College in Kannapolis, NC (a 25 min drive) 5 days a week for 5.5 hours each day after working a full-time job as an elementary school teacher. It was hard but well worth it. Since then I have attended several workshops and trainings to keep up with new and upcoming methods and technology within waxing and skincare.
What I love about what I do is the way that it makes people feel! I love the look on my clients face when they look in the mirror for the first time or when they hop off the table after their wax session. Feeling great about how you look can change a person's spirit and self-esteem...who wouldn't want to have a part in that type of change? I also enjoy seeing images of clients' professional images and networking with other professionals. I am beyond blessed to have the opportunity to service so many different clients and have them trust me with some of their most special moments.
