I am enjoying 24 years doing what I love. I accepted the position of Cosmetology Instructor when my Instructor retired in 1997. At the time, I was a Junior at FMU working toward my degree in Elementary Education. I stepped away from college when my current job was offered to me. I have never regretted my decision. I love working with teens. Teaching Cosmetology allows me to combine this love with my love for hair, makeup, and fashion. #doingwhatyouloveisntwork #beautyisintheyeoftheCosmetologist.
