Sara Strouts

Licensed Cosmetology Educator, Licensed School Manager – Minnesota

I have been in the beauty industry for about 20 years. Fifteen of those have been spent at PCI and I am forever changed because of it. Although I am a cosmetology educator, I have a knack for nails! And so I became the nail educator about 2 years into my career at PCI.

Nothing makes me happier than seeing the amazing students that leave our school with the knowledge and education we provide, apply it to their career, and advance to becoming well-known nail technicians in our industry. It makes me proud to read articles that our nail techs have had published in nail magazines. Our nail graduates are mentors, leading the way for others in the industry.

The students have kept me young. A friend of mine recently asked what my hobbies were, to my surprise and hers, I said “Walking and PCI.” The time I spend at PCI is fun. It’s challenging, ever-changing, and for me a home away from home! This team is the “#BestTeamEver”!
