Meet Tara Schoolmeesters, Financial Aid Advisor. Tara has been in the beauty industry since 2010 and is a graduate of PCI Academy. After earning her cosmetology license Tara worked behind the chair for five years before deciding to go back into business and finance. The financial aid opportunity was the perfect fit for her life experiences and desired career path. Tara’s favorite part of her job is seeing the difference in students from when they start to graduation. We really get to see students grow and follow their dreams.
