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

The amazing team I am blessed to work with on a daily basis, the culture we live, and the amazing Future Professionals.

 

To me, living beautifully means…

Living above reproach and leading by example. Realizing the blessings that I have in my life and using them to impact others in a positive way.

I have five years of experience in financial aid.

 

Experience in the beauty industry…

This is my first time working in the beauty industry and I love it!

 

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

My mom. She is the most generous, intelligent, witty, and selfless person I have ever met. She has taught me to always want more for myself and to never settle for being mediocre.

 

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

We are truly a family. I love every single person I work with and cannot imagine a better work environment. It has become my second home.

Giving back to the community, not taking what you have for granted, and helping others become the very best versions of themselves.

I've been in the industry for six years and have taught for the last three years.

I've been consistently working in the industry since I graduated from cosmetology school. I've done at least seven fashion shows. I am also level one–certified in cutting and texture, and certified in level two makeup.

 

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

Julian Perlingiero. He is such a talented hairstylist, and has more passion for teaching than I've seen in almost anyone!

 

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

The family I have made. I've never been in a place that accepts me for me, and pushes me to be the best Learning Leader I can be. The fact we have so many opportunities to do charity work and better our community is an added bonus.

 

To me, living beautifully means…

Making others feel as beautiful as they are. When you can help people find their true beauty, you are literally living beautifully.

After six years in the salon, I started pursuing my educator degree in 2009. I have been facilitating the Future Professionals of this industry ever since.

 

Experience in the beauty industry…

Eleven short years ago I ventured into this industry, fell completely captive to it, and I have never looked back. These 11 years have been the best years of my life.

 

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

It’s very hard to pick just one mentor. Being in the Paul Mitchell community, I have had the opportunity to be challenged and changed by so many. My closest mentors are all my amazing owners and fellow co-workers that challenge and push me to be better every day.

The family community that thrives in our school daily.
