I love working with in this industry. I had the opportunity to work with many fabulous people. Also exploring the sides of Beauty and Creative. Production, Lifestyle, and Print.
I knew she wanted to be in the beauty industry even as a young child. At 17 years of age, I got my first opportunity with Safire McMillan Canale Salon located in Malibu, California. I moved up from initially being the front desk receptionist, to shampoo girl, and ultimately being an understudy of Bernie Safire himself. Mr. Safire was considered a friend, mentor and also introduced me to some of Hollywood’s biggest celebrities. But through my mentorship with Safire, I started to realize that skin and makeup was my passion, with hair being a second for styling..
I went abroad to attend college in Australia. Nineteen, at this point in her life, I worked freelance at numerous salons in Australia.
When I arrived back to the U.S., I was quickly able to secure a position working for MAC in South Carolina. This was the next step in my dream career and I felt like I was on the right path. But again I realized that something was missing. While I truly loved making people look their best, I longed for a more personal relationship with my clients.
This made way for the next chapter in of my life by moving to Florida and attending Florida College of Natural Health to obtain an Esthetician license. By gaining her license, it allows myself to not only help women look the best with make-up, but it also allowed her to educate her clients on how to maintain a beautiful canvas with which to create any look respective of the occasion.
