One of my favorite professional experiences

 I was asked by the Music & Drama dept. at ISU to take one of their leading ladies in the production of, Guys & Dolls, from a dark brown to a platinum blonde.  We had 3 days to accomplish the process.  It looks 16 hours over a two-day period.  We worked her appointments in between her rehearsal schedule and school schedule.  We were in the salon at odd hours, morning, noon & night, in order to complete this transformation.  It was beautiful in the salon and even more beautiful on the stage. Sometimes you just have an end result that takes your own breath away.  This was one of mine.

One of my favorite professional experiences:

One of my favorite memories is when I ran the recruiting program for a previous employer. I had the opportunity to visit many high schools in Idaho. I watched students choose to attend Cosmetology and then observed their transformation into happy productive professionals. I find a great deal of satisfaction in being a small part in who they have become. Cosmetology has so many opportunities to change a person’s life and nothing is greater than assisting in that transformation.

One of my favorite professional experiences:

I have loved being able to work in the salon with an instructor’s license, which allows me to have students come in and shadow me and see how the salon life really works.  Having clients in my chair and watching the student connect in a new way is amazing!  They get a chance to see how passionate the stylists are in the salon and how we all work as a team.  It’s never a one man show at the salon I am at.  We are very team-oriented and love being a part of all that goes on there.  We teach each other and help where needed.  This is so important for students to see early in their career and I love having the opportunity to help them.

One of Your Favorite Professional Experiences 

I have been teaching Cosmetology for 27 years now and there are too many to tell. It has been really fun watching a former student come full circle. A former student went to school here about 12 years ago and had a very successful career in the beauty industry. She also started instructing in a school in Idaho Falls. There was a job opening here in the Cosmetology program and she applied and was hired and now we are coworkers. I also will run into former students every once in a while and some of them have told me they wouldn’t be where they are today if wasn’t for me and that makes me very proud of all the hard work I have done. This has been a great career.
