I have been licensed since 1970, graduating from the Academy of Pivot Point International. My past experience includes managing salons for over 30 years while carrying a full clientele. Along with managing I created and implemented training programs and workshops for stylists and receptionists. This evolved into motivational workshops for various salon personnel and evaluation programs. I have continually pursued education throughout my career. I have attended advanced training in color and cutting in L.A., Miami, Tampa, Chicago, New York and Las Vegas. I have also attended motivational seminars with industry leaders such as Lou Lesoncy, Geno Stampora, Zig Ziegler and Robert Cromeans. I have enjoyed working as guest stylist on local television shows, coordinating and emceeing fashion shows and filming educational videos for salon education. On the fun side of life, I have greatly enjoyed traveling. There have been fabulous vacations all over Europe, South America and China.
