If we had a chance to talk with any of our former students, what would they tell us about you and your classes? They would definitely say that I am a morning person. I love to be happy in the mornings and create a learning environment that is educational and fun. I would also hope that they say that my classes are relevant. If you teach a subject but the student doesn’t realize its importance to their future, I feel you just wasted their time! I want to teach salon survival – information for that will help create a life-long profession and what a BEAUTIFUL profession it is!

What did you do before you began teaching at Kaskaskia College? Before I started teaching at Kaskaskia College, I worked in a salon in Millstadt, IL. Once I started as an adjunct instructor I still continued to work in the salon. This was vital for me as a mentor to my students. I needed to stay fresh in the industry and be able to bring my salon experiences into the classroom. Once I began teaching full-time at the college, I left the salon and started a traveling salon in the evenings/weekends.
