. . . After many years as a practicing lawyer and not yet ready to retire, I decided to re-visit the skincare business. Being an active octogenarian I enrolled at the International Academy, a private school, graduated, and obtained my state license as an esthetician. IA is a fabulous school, providing interesting classes, patient teachers, and an overall pleasant [experience]. I have been actively working in a salon in Florida and loving every minute of it. Who says you can’t learn a new skill and start a new career at 80!
Hair has always been a great passion of mine, and when I knew cosmetology was the career I wanted to pursue, I looked long and hard for a loyal school. I found the perfect one, International Academy! So, I packed up my bags from Chicago and moved down to Florida. I learned great skills in coloring and cutting and had lots of feed back from all of the great, knowledgeable teachers. I have now been doing hair for 5 years and am having great success!
I am now the proud owner of Serenity Salon & Spa an 1800 square foot facility in St. Augustine, Florida. I really owe all of this to International Academy for giving me the education that allowed me to make this dream come true.
I have no one else to Thank other then Mez and International Academy for my success today! After graduating I spent one year working for Hair Cuttery building a clientele and getting more experience. The skills I acquired at International gave me complete confidence and set me apart from many I’ve worked with! Since then I work alongside with my sister and other great girls, as a booth renter in our super cute and fun salon, The Loft. This is my career I absolutely Love my job, I’m able to support my family. Again thank you Mez and International for making my dream come true!
