In Her Words
  • What do you like about working for Z Hair Academy?

    I like working for Z Hair Academy because they really care about the success of their students and staff.

  • What is your favorite hair product?

    My favorite products are L’Oreal Professionnel Inforcer Shampoo and Conditioner, which give my hair a nice shine with lots of volume. My favorite leave-in product is Surface CHAR Gel Mousse, which provides a nice hold without making my hair sticky.

  • What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

    I enjoy reading books, watching new shows and spending time with my husband, three older boys, two dogs and a cat. We like to grill food and eat around our fire pit.

  • What is something you liked to do as a child?

    I knew I wanted to go into cosmetology at an early age. I got into trouble for cutting my sister’s dolls’ hair, which meant replacing them with my allowance money.

  • What will people be surprised to know?

    People will be surprised to know that I love gardening. My grandmother always planted a bunch of flowers every year, and planting flowers makes me feel close to her.

  • What is your favorite band?

    My favorite band of all time is Lynyrd Skynyrd. My son blasts the music, and we dance around the house being silly.
