Cosmetology I Teacher
When I was at Denton High school we had a cosmetology program in the building. I wanted to do the program but I played volleyball and softball so there was not time and my friends told me I was too much of a tomboy to do hair. For some crazy reason, I listened to their opinions. I ended up going to UNT to gain a Bachelors in Health Promotion. After I graduated, I coached volleyball and basketball while subbing for PE often. I did not feel like this was my spot and left to travel with a children’s choir from Kenya for three years.
When I returned from tour, I decided to go cosmetology school! NCTC had a great program for Cosmetology Operators and I took my chance there. I have had my booth in Denton for 9 years. I decided that I wanted to advance my career in this industry. I returned to NCTC for my Cosmetology Instructor license. I served the students there for three years.
My passion for this industry is rooted in my desire to serve and to help people. I am good at the practical aspect of doing hair but people in my chair with smiles and feeling better about themselves when they leave is my favorite aspect of doing hair. My favorite practical skill is doing special occasion styles. I have done hair for many weddings, proms, homecoming and special parties!
I have a lovely family who is constantly growing. My parents have been married 44 years! I have two older sisters and a twin brother with an incredible sister-in-love. I have 4 nieces and 2 nephews. All three of my siblings are also teachers. I enjoy time with family, friends, attending sporting events, working out, playing games, meal prepping, eating sweets, going to the lake and dancing.
