Who Am I

From the beginning I knew I was different. I grew up in the inner city of the capital of Pennsylvania. I want to regular public schools and took normal classes just like everyone else around me...until I didn’t. I’ll never forget it, fourth grade, my parents were called in for a school meeting about me. I couldn’t figure out what I had done wrong. Turns out they wanted to send me from my regular public school to a school where I would learn an instrument, speak an additional language, and wear a uniform...all because I was too smart.-I hated it! I had to leave all my friends and try to make new ones. So there it began, I was doomed to spend the rest of my learning years with the smart kids. 

After high school I went to college for business because I didn’t know what I wanted to be. I only went because it was expected of me-hated it!

It wasn’t until I was married and pregnant with my oldest child that I found something that actually delighted me. I took a job at a makeup counter in a department store. Guess what, I loved it! I had always been a person who wore makeup, did my hair, and took care of myself but I didn’t realize that this could actually be a career.

But then my life took a turn. I suddenly found myself divorced with two young children and realized I needed to make more money. I went to nursing school and continued in that field working nights and weekends to make sure I could provide and be available for my children. Years passed but my job became too stressful. I enjoyed the patient care but I didn’t enjoy the red tape and chaos that came along with the nursing field.

I went back to school to become a Massage Therapist and the spa bug bit me. The peace and relaxation that came along with this profession was extraordinary. From then on I decided to chart my own course and the only way to do that was through education and experience. I became state licensed as a Massage Therapist, Esthetician, and Natural Hair Specialist. I continued to gain education and experience in specialty areas like airbrush makeup, permanent makeup, and eyelash extensions just to name a few. I worked at the prestigious Hotel Hershey Chocolate Spa for more than a decade and have serviced thousands of clients.

But I wanted something more.

  •  I wasn’t afforded enough time to answer all of my clients questions
  • I couldn’t follow up to assure the desired treatments were working 
  • I wasn’t having the same clients consistently so that inhibited my ability assist clients in achieving their desired outcomes
