I was inspired to attend Jolie by my friend and teacher, Ms. Stacey. As an esthetician with 17 years of experience, I felt it was time to expand my skill set and take my career to the next level. Throughout my 1,200 hours, I have grown as a professional, learned valuable new skills, and have become motivated by my teachers to return and obtain my instructor’s license. I hope to open my own boutique salon, become a cosmetology teacher and eventually work for the state board to keep our industry safe, professional and regulated. My advice to new students is to focus on studying, practicing and respecting your teachers’ knowledge, and work hard because no one starts at the top.
