I came out of high school, with many scholarships, but put them off to start a family. At age 22, I began going to school for the nursing field. While doing so, I began working at Hamilton Co. Hospital and Extended Care, in Syracuse, KS. Realizing I could not put my emotions aside, after becoming too attached to my patients, I moved to Texas.
Recently divorced, and with no family in the area, I picked up what jobs I could, discovered I had a knack for people skills, and became a bartender. While I made good money doing so, I knew it was not what I was meant to be, in life.
Soon after, while still bartending full time, I began an apprenticeship as a tattooist, and rediscovered a passion for the arts. Whether it be on paper, canvas, or the skin, I love creating objects of beauty that the owners can enjoy for a lifetime.
In December 2013, I stumbled upon a new makeup company, Younique, due to their 3D Fiber Lash mascara. Being a closet case makeup junkie, on a whim, I decided to join with the company. Since then, I have discovered that helping other people feel empowered and beautiful, was something I was not only was good at, but truly enjoyed. Ten months later, the excitement and passion I had in the beginning, has not only stayed with me, but has grown tremendously.
Today, I mentor a large and growing team of both men and women, to help them further their goals, achieve success for themselves, and help secure their futures.
I continue to tattoo, and do my makeup business, while still making time to enjoy time with my family and friends.
I am one of the lucky few that found not just one passion in life, but two, that both pay my bills. The old saying that if you love what you do, it will never feel like work? It’s more true than I ever would have believed!
