I have always tried hard to surround myself with people and environments that make others feel good about themselves. After graduating with degrees in Nutrition & Dietetics and Foreign Languages at NIU, I worked in the weight loss industry for several years. Jenny Craig afforded me many opportunities at a young age; from positions of weight loss consulting, to sales and business management. (#jclifer)
When it was time for me to move on, I decided to explore the beauty industry. In 2012 I graduated from Pivot Point Academy and began working full time as a stylist. While I enjoyed my time behind the chair, two years taught me that I missed the business side of, well, business.
I met Tony Odisho in September of 2013, and he presented me with the opportunity that would allow me to stay in the beauty industry and develop and sharpen my abilities as a stylist, while also utilizing the skills I honed in my previous career. I served as the Director of Operations at Tony Odisho for nearly 8 years.
Since then, I have transitioned back into a career as a full-time stylist focusing on services that I love doing: styling & extenions. As a stylist, I am continuously grateful to play a small role in some of the most special days in the lives of my clients, whether they are going to prom, their wedding, or a once-in-a-blue-moon date night. On the extensions side, there is literally nothing that I have come across that gives such an instant burst of confidence as extensions, and having the ability to give my clients that gift is a constant source of pride for me.
When I’m not doing hair, I’m most likely eating, hanging with Jill , or chandler-ing at Barleywick Candles.
If any of those things interest you, hit me up.
