I realized after working in offices for 10 years that I wasn’t working to my full potential and was not utilizing the creative side of my brain. My passion wasn’t in an office, but in making people feel good about themselves and making women feel beautiful. After going back to beauty school, I spent 5 years working at salons, and eventually managing one.
An amazing opportunity to teach high school students cosmetology presented itself. How could I say no to that? It wasn’t long after starting that I realized I really missed the many different kinds of people and personalities I got to interact with.
In come LASHES! What started as a “side hustle” for friends and family, began to evolve into so much more! I am so honored to be able to work with so many great clients and to meet so many great people! I cannot wait to see where life takes me in this endeavor of entrepreneurship!
I earned by Cosmetology license in 2015 and began working immediately in a salon as a stylist. My talents and creativity were also used when I worked as a Nail Technician, which I continue to do here at U2.0. Though my career is very fulfilling as a stylist, there was something missing. After much thought and deliberation, I realized that it was Massage Therapy. My training took place at Integrative Body Works in State College, PA and therein lied my passion. I still enjoy doing the occasional haircut and style, however, my heart is really in fixing. Massage Therapy allows me to help people feel better about themselves by relieving pain and stress associated with sports, injury, or just daily life. Bringing my knowledge and skill to the business exemplifies our goal of helping our clients feel great about themselves!
