Team

Meet some of the team members who make Paul Mitchell The School Jersey Shore so special.

Michael

Owner/Director

Experience in education: 

 I've been in the education industry for over (8) years.

Experience in the beauty industry:  

I have been an owner of both cosmetology schools and salons for over (8) years.

My mentor, or person who most inspired me is:  

NO DOUBT, my Dad is the person who most inspired me most and he will ALWAYS be my GREATEST Mentor!  My Dad taught me by example.  The example was how he lead his life.  He never told me what to do and he never tried to influence my life choices.  He taught me not only the importance of family but the critical importance of spending TIME with family.  Especially the kids in the family.  We all know that TIME is the a commodity that we can never get more of and we never know when our TIME is going to over.  He taught me the importance of treating everyone fairly and to ALWAYS be honest.  He taught me so many life lessons just by being the GREAT MAN that he was!  If you were blessed enough to know my Dad, you will know exactly what I'm talking about.  I make a conscious effort to be more like him everyday.  And, I clearly know that I have enormous shoes to fill!

My favorite thing about working at Paul Mitchell the school Jersey Shore is:

My favorite thing about working at Paul Mitchell The School - Jersey Shore is definitely our Culture!  "One size fits ALL" mentality.  We accept anyone who is committed and passionate about the beauty industry.  We are a family and once you make the decision to enter our family you will have us for life!  EVERYDAY is fun and exciting at Paul Mitchell The School - Jersey Shore!  I not only love watching our Future Professionals grow into the beauty industries greatest Professionals but I also love watching our Team grow in their careers.  There is no other place for me!

To me living beautifully means: 

To me, living beautifully means embracing all of life's events no matter whether your initial perception of the event is "good or bad".  Confidently believing that it is all part of your life plan.  When I started learning to not only accept, but embrace the less than desirable events in my life, I began seeing how they truly have shaped me as a person and provided me such a great appreciation of life.  Without having gone through those so called "bad" events, I wouldn't have gained the knowledge I now have and I wouldn't have the profound true appreciation of life.  Also, living beautifully to me means to have true acceptance of all people and their characteristics and to treat everyone with utmost love and respect that everyone absolutely deserves.

Learning Leader

Experience in education: 

I have been a Paul Mitchell licensed educator for 3 years working in Paul Mitchell Schools and I LOVE every part of our schools especially our  CULTURE!

Experience in the beauty industry: 

I like to think I have been a part of the beauty industry from when I held my first make-up brush as a little girl. I have always been into art.  Being a ballet dancer nothing was better than feeling the transformation of any role you took. I knew arts and creativity was the industry that I needed to pursue. I love inspiring others to be free to embrace and explore their creativity. 

 

My mentor, or person who most inspired me is: 

First and foremost my mother as she taught me the values of strength, loyalty, and love. And second my son Alex I am proud to say I have taken the role of his most important role model next to my husband and that is truly my inspiration every day I wake up. 

 

My favorite thing about working at Paul Mitchell the school Jersey Shore is: 

The feeling I have when I get to inspire the next generation of stylists and beauty professionals.  Having the opportunity to see those “ah ha” moments being an educator is what keeps my passion burning.  Also being the bright face they see every morning reminding them that it is going to be alright no matter what challenges come their way.

To me living beautifully means: 

To being the change the world has forgotten, to being hopeful and the positive light in someone's day, and to always choosing happiness every day.
