Jasmine Briley at our Ames Iowa campus  as our Advanced cosmetology class and floor coach is our educator spotlight of the week!! ... a few words from Jasmine! 
“I chose the industry because I have a passion for helping others look and feel good. 
I became an educator when my body told me I needed to slow down. I was devastated about having to quit working behind the chair due to medical reasons but the universe put the add for PCI Educator in my Facebook news feed the day after my doctor and I had that conversation! I love that I’m still in the industry and my favorite part of being an educator is not only am I teaching and growing students but they also teach me and help me grow!”
 Thank you for ALL you do. #pcikind
