Cosmetology was always a field of interest for me. Ever since I was a little girl I would always style my barbies’ hair, and even try to cut my own! When I was in cosmetology school, I was introduced to Jude’s at a career fair held by my school. Out of all the booths, Jude’s Barbershop was the first to catch my attention. Not only did they have a ton of locations to choose from, but to my surprise they were a family owned company! As a stylist that was really important for me to feel like I was apart of a community and not just a number. I’ve been with Jude’s coming up on 3 years now and I couldn’t ask for a better family! I started knowing nothing but how to hold a pair of clippers, little did I know how far this company would take me. I’ve grown so much as a stylist, team member, and now manager of our West River Dr. location thanks to Jude’s. They not only welcomed me into the industry brand new with open arms, but also formed me into the stylist I am now. Looking back, I would’ve ran at the idea of ever becoming a manager. Jude’s gave me the confidence, education, and drive that I needed to be successful and I’m excited to continue to grow with my team and this company!
