My mentor, or the person who has most inspired me is…

Tiffany Garske. She is my older sister and has taught me everything I know about hair and makeup growing up. I looked to her then and do now, and am so happy to see how far she has come. She has inspired me to want to go further in this industry. 

 

My favorite thing about working at Paul Mitchell The School Nampa is…

Everything, really. I am so happy to be a part of this industry, I can't have just one favorite thing. I love getting to know all the Future Professionals, the entire staff, and all the special guests that come into the school. To learn something new about beauty every single day is amazing. 

 

To me, living beautifully means…

A way of life. If you don't present yourself as a beautiful person, you will never be able to be confident in yourself. And confidence is key, especially in this industry. Present yourself as a confident, beautiful cosmetologist and you will go places.
