Mara Medlin

Financial Aid Advisor

Experience in Education….
I was an activities facilitator for the college-prep program Upward Bound for 3 years.

 

Experience in the beauty industry…
No one taught me how to apply makeup growing up, so I'm sure there was a lot of trial and error on my part. I remember when I was a child, my elderly neighbors invited me to their Mary Kay party and I've been hooked ever since! Thankfully, I'm surrounded by many talented Future Professionals every day so they keep me up-to-date on all the new trends!

 

My mentor, or the person who has most inspired me is….
My mother will always be my biggest inspiration. She raised three children all by herself and always gave us the confidence to achieve whatever we wanted in life! She also taught me to always be kind.

 

My favorite thing about working at Imagine Norman is….
The positive environment is the thing I admire most about imagine. There are so many different backgrounds and personalities at our school, however I can always count on everyone coming together to support one another. We all genuinely care about the happiness and personal growth of both staff and students. 

 

To me, living beautifully means…
Doing your best to live better than you did the day before.

My mentor, or the person who has most inspired me is….
A combination of previous Learning Leaders, my family (background of cosmetologists & Instructors) my current team, and Future Professionals. I’m always striving to set an example that mirrors our commitment to excellence and providing my team & FPs with the best Education experience possible!

 

My favorite thing about working at Imagine Norman is….
The culture! Many schools can teach students how to cut & style hair, but Paul Mitchell schools provide our learners with the tools they need to grow a successful salon business, and improve the lives of their guests through the Power of Beauty!

 

To me, living beautifully means…
To always “have courage and be kind” being nice takes people so much farther than they could ever dream with only their skill set. Staying humble and charitable makes a huge difference in the way you make people feel.
