If you could give your younger self some advice what would you tell her?
Don’t be so serious about life so young. I felt like I was in a hurry to grow up and be independent.
Why should someone come to you to get their hair done?
They should come to see me because they will have fun and they will leave with something new and something that suits them.
How did mentorship become important to you?
It really came from the job. I was never was a group leader in school but I feel like I just love that part of it…I love the teaching..being a one on one situation of goal setting. I love seeing the reaction I get from them when they meet their goal or get to that next level. It’s so awesome helping to build a career. I never expected to even want to do something like this but I pushed back some of my own boundaries and found out that the leadership part of it was something I could learn and become good at. I wanted to be ready and wanted to be given the opportunity, so I’m grateful to Chatters for that.
