Finding the best way to make a difference

I started out as a teacher, working with developmentally disabled teenagers.
I soon found I had a passion for adult instruction and have dedicated my career to finding the best ways to train adult learners.
My business background has allowed me to focus my training on business management particularly in the salon and beauty industries.
My 25 years experience in the business of beauty combined with my experience with small business management had me running 120 salons at one time, and then running training twice for two national chains of franchised salons.
I found that being part of a large bureaucracy was not satisfying.
I decided to bring my expertise to the individual salon and small business owners.
I enjoy the one on one contact and the satisfactions of watching your business succeed.
Similarly I like to work at all levels of the salon organization
  Owners assisting them reach their highest level of salon management and operation
  Managers helping them reach their maximum management and supervisory potential
  Stylist supporting them to reach their “professional best” while operating in the salon
When you put it all together everyone in the salon sees the same vision each individual works to meeting the salon mission as it helps them get what they want so they give other what they need
When everyone sees where they fit we have a puzzle that fits together everyone working on the same page getting what they need and want from the working circumstances
Let’s get to know each other and all of us achieve “Our Professional Best” for “Our Best Professional and Personal success”
