Kate Manders

Licensed Cosmetology Educator – Minnesota

A family member was a salon owner growing up. I would hang out in her salon and she would send products to my family. I loved using all of the beauty products and being in the salon getting services done. I knew I was going to cosmetology school since 3rd grade, and I did immediately following high school!

My favorite part of my job is growing confidence in people, students and guests! My team and I all have a passion for the industry and are all there to serve our students, who are our #1 guests. PCI has changed my life in the fact that I get to help grow and develop talented young artists and see them achieve success in their careers. That is very rewarding to me!

In my spare time I enjoy being with my family which includes my 10-year-old son and my 3 dogs. I enjoy anything active: exercise, yoga, music, art, photography, traveling, shopping, sporting events, and being outdoors in the summer!
