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

    I love working for a family-owned company. Ron and Judi truly care about their employees. It’s a company I have a future with.

  • What is your favorite hair product?

    My favorite hair product is Aquage Finishing Spray. It’s an awesome hairspray that is flexible but long-lasting.

  • What do you enjoy doing outside of work?

    I love to play with my three kids outside. We spend as much time as we can running around playing games.

  • What is something you are passionate about?

    I have had a love for the Kansas City Chiefs ever since I was a little girl, which my mom definitely helped inspire. My husband, Travis, and I went to a game for our first date and have continued going ever since. What’s not to love about tailgating and football?!

  • What was your first job?

    My first job at a pizza restaurant led to my passion for customer service. Working there for 10 years taught me a lot of patience and understanding. The owner was a very firm believer in having a smile the moment a customer opened the door, which has stuck with me ever since.

  • What will people be surprised to know?

    I have six siblings— five brothers and one amazing sister!

  • What is your favorite band?

    I have too many favorites to pick, but my favorite concerts have been Garth Brooks. I have been three times!
