I have been a part of the PCI Academy team for 6 years. I graduated from PCI Academy in Ames, IA in 2004 with my cosmetology license and a passion for helping people to feel better about themselves through my art. I spent almost 5 years behind the chair before moving to Nashville, TN to pursue a career in education within the beauty industry. In 2010, I returned to Iowa to join the team at PCI Academy. While facilitating at the Academy my love for skin and nail care flourished which has led me to specialize in these areas.
I received Redken Specialist Training and have attended Redken Symposium. I had the opportunity to work with and under award winning trainers on many occasions throughout my career. I have attended many classes at the International Dermal Institute working toward my certification with IDI. I am also a CND Master Painter and Shellac Certified. I have attended workshops in business including Summit Salon Business Training and Michael Cole’s Step Up.
During my down time, I enjoy spending time with friends, family and my fur-children. I enjoy Netflix, cooking, gardening and spending time in the great outdoors.
