CFO / School Supervisor / Teacher's program Instructor
My perspective in life is all about the what if? What does it take to be able to succeed in the area that is important to each of us? From owning my own business and my business degree background, I realized that the traditional ways of learning does not work for everyone. That's why I believe to help students succeed, we will need to teach hands on at a professional level. Our theory and practical, combine with the necessary life skill curriculum will help our students be well rounded and prepare them for their success. That is why, I want to provide an institution that will prepare our students with the knowledge and confidence they need to enter the work force.

Spanish Cosmetology Instructor / Test Prep
I love everything about the beauty industry because I love helping others to look and feel beautiful. I began my career in my home country of Ecuador, when I was 15, doing nails and selling beauty products. I grew up in a very strict home, so getting good grades was expected. That's part of why I became a high achiever in all that I do. When I moved to the states, I worked in Dominican salons in NY without any license. After I relocated to Philadelphia, I was in sales for 8 years before I went for my licenses. I went to Belle Institute for both my Cosmetology and Teacher license. I went on board to teach there, where I created the Spanish Cosmetology program. I felt a strong passion to help others like myself, that needed the practical and theory in order to pass the Spanish state board exams. Teaching for me came very natural because I did a lot of tutoring through out my years in high school. I love what I do because I know there are so many people like myself, that just need some help.
Cosmetology / Hair Braid Instructor / Test Prep
When I was 11yrs old I needed lunch money, so I found a way to make my own money as a shampoo girl. I learned then, that the beauty industry can be very lucrative in terms of flexibility, growth and financially. Because I started out in the salon only learning things hands on, when I was in school for Cosmetology, I realized the importance of having that fundamental theory behind it. After I got my Cosmetology license, I opened my own salon in 2010. Owning my own salon I quickly learned that I needed business management and leadership skills to be able to run a profitable business. I went for my teacher’s program at Paul Mitchell where I gained valuable insights on how to “fake that confidence until I make it”. Working at QBA taught me the value of teamwork, and my role in impacting people in my everyday life. I hope to contribute my experiences and knowledge, to help other to persevere through any temporary hardships, so they can finish school and be successful.
