I currently work as the Marketing Director and Training Center Coordinator for a leading Automotive Consulting Firm but my first experience operating a business was when I was nine years old - I worked with my family owned production company. During those years ahead I started a professional career in the beauty industry. By the age of fifteen I knew what lay in store and by eighteen years of age I was managing a nail salon and later became regional “Nail Educator for Wanamaker’s Salons.” In addition to owning and operating a successful full service salon and day spa, I have been blessed with opportunities to work alongside professionals as a set make-up artist and voice over talent geared toward corporate and entertainment productions. Prospective employers have sited my diverse list of accomplishments and lengthy resume. Being on both ends of an interview, my advice to anyone is: Take what you’ve learned and apply it every day; valuable insight comes from stepping outside of your comfort zone. It is important that every member of a team embody a positive as well as an entrepreneurial spirit. Lead with your best and most surely success shall follow!
