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.
With the education I received from International I quickly advanced in the industry. After graduation I quickly surpassed colleagues in my salon and moved into management after six months. After only three years I was able to open my own salon which has been very successful. All of this has been possible because of International Academy!
After graduating from Intl Academy I went out into the real world of with such confidence and was ready for anything had to offer me. I started with Hair Cuttery and in 6 months became the manager. Several years later I opened my own salon with another Intl Academy grad and have successfully been in business over 4 years thanks to my fabulous education, love and support from Mez and the entire staff at Intl Academy!
International Academy provided me with a strong educational and professional foundation in which I have been able to build upon. My goal has been to elevate myself and others to new levels of success and to show cosmetology graduates that anything is possible in our industry.
