Sales & Education
My training in the professional beauty industry began as a sales person for a small skin care company. I later worked as the Spa Manager and was trained in every aspect of the Spa industry. I visited the Perron Rigot training facility in Paris France several times for waxing. I learned about hair and scalp treatments during visits to the Lazartique Hair Treatment Center in Paris. My experience in body treatments was through several years of training with Thalac Cosmetiques and their Thalasso Therapy Treatment Centres along the French Riveria. I do not think anyone can ever stop learning and improving upon their skills. However, the training I received over the course of my career and during my travels to Europe have been some of the most important lessons and the basis from which my expertise comes today. I am truly grateful for those experiences which have led me to a very successful career in consulting with salons and spas on every aspect of the beauty business.
