I am the Introduction to Cosmetology Instructor. I have been a licensed Cosmetologist for 14 years and a licensed Cosmetology instructor for 5 years. Seeing our students start as young teenagers and growing into licensed Cosmetology professionals is one of the most rewarding parts of my job. Outside of school I am a very proud mom that stays busy with my 3 children's activities including orchestra, gymnastics, and baseball.
I am the second year Cosmetology teacher. I have a Bachelor of Arts from The Ohio State University with a focus in secondary education. I received my Cosmetology certificate from Aveda Fredrics Institute and also taught Cosmetology there for 8 years. Before teaching I worked at Penzone salon and spa in Columbus Ohio for 7 years. My favorite part of teaching is watching the excitement a student has when they master a skill that was once difficult for them. Outside of school I enjoy spending time outdoors with my husband and 2 children.
Katja has been in the Cosmetology industry for 10 years and has been a teacher in the field for 4 years. She truly is fulfilled in teaching students this craft and assisting teachers in a more beneficial lesson plan.
I am originally from Gary, IN and attended West Side High School class of 2008. I fell in love with the Cosmetology industry at a young age with braiding then began to develop interest in other areas of hair. I have been licensed for six years I received my training at Empire Beauty College for Cosmetology; I received my Educators training at Tricoci University of Beauty Culture both here in Indy. I am the proud mother of two beautiful daughters and one handsome son. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with family and friends. I am excited to meet and engage with the next future stylist!
